I really am starting down the path toward being one of those old ladies about whom we read grey little short stories in high school.
As I left work last night I was thinking of supper, until I passed the Sonic Drive In. Then I remembered: Woo-hoo! It's Tuesday! Half price burgers!
Tuesday is Old People Day at several local businesses--stores that offer discounts to elders who shop on that day. Elders' residences offer bus trips to Walmart or Walgreen's on Tuesdays.
Still, I try very hard not to spend more than five dollars a day on fast food, and that about covers a breakfast burrito and a soft drink. With the half price burgers, I can get a whole combo for under my limit. Not that I need to be eating French fries, anyway, but still...
So. Eventually I shall get to know which places have perks on which days of the week...which day is best to visit the day-old bakery outlet, and when the big sale is at Bealls. I have already scoped out some places to get cheap stuff (and, yes, I did try the "dollar store" toothbrushes. I wound up with a mouthful of bristles)--Tuesday Morning, Khols (where there is also a "senior's day"), the Boy Scouts' Pancake Breakfast.
When I start to keep my face in a jar by the door, just shoot me, OK?
