Did I Forget to Mention the Terracotta Wallpaper?
As a senior citizen on a fixed income, I’ve been forced to make a number of sacrifices in order to make ends meet.
I fill my shopping cart with dented cans of Angolian tuna, limit my meat purchases to the “irregular chicken back” aisle and regularly consume dairy products that have crossed the line from recently expired to dangerously hazardous.
Despite my best penny-pinching efforts, I still find myself occasionally stretched to the financial limit. And so, with considerable regret, I’ve decided to begin renting a room in my small home.
Just this week, I posted the following notice on the bulletin board at the Piggly Wiggly.

So much for the housing crisis – and so much for me eating fresh produce in 2010.
