I left the house early to go to the airport 2 days ago. That way I could stop in the Jewelry exchange & pick up Doris' gift! Mona only came down $15.00 on the price, big fuckin' whoop.
I had made my mind up, though. And that I knew Doris loved it, well how could I resist? Clearly we will not be able to get one for each of us, two of the braclets would be almost $1,000. (dang that Mona.) Not to worry, I shall just enjoy looking at the beautiful, sleek golden cats around Doris' lovely, long strong arm! (She should have been a pro basketball player being 6 ft tall.) (love her muscles!)
I paid with a check for "cash" so I didn't have to add the tax, which is now up to frickin' 7% thanks to our dumbass new govenor that recently brought the whole damn state to a standstill until evrybody voted yes for increasing the tax change. Hell, I voted for him, but I now think he should be impeached... 6% tax was the only great thing about living in (Elizabeth, pay attention!) NEW JERSEY.
Well, that's not entirely true - I do get to share a (teeeeeeeeny abode in the Jersey burbs - couldn't afford more) with my Fabulous Woman, so that IS a great thing! Obviously I would be willing to live most anywhere just to be with Her (since I'd lived in NYC for 27years, in Greenwich Village, on Christopher St (!) (the corner of Christopher & Bleeker to be exact! - Homosexual Mecca at the time) to be MORE exact... Yep, I actually moved to fuckin' NJ to buy a house with her. Years later we had the opportunity to buy my parent's wonderful home in California, but noooOOOOooooo. She was born in Jersey & she's more than likely going to die here... She won't move.
Okay, so now here we are, 10 yrs later, (we had been together 15yrs before buying a house,)....
My little slice of heaven. As it were...
Need a new roof, new plumbing, new bathtub (it is too small,) new toilet sink & tile, new electrical wiring, painting inside & out,& we need to cut down a couple of rotting trees about 4 stories high. (That would cost more than $1,000/tree - fuckin' robbers those tree service folks are...) hmmm, what am I leaving out... Well, nevermind.
So I am feeling irresponsible, but uhmmm,....... Screw it!
Instead of doing any of the above repairs & taking care of business,..... well,..... I have invested in a lovely Italian sculptured, exquisite golden cat bangle for my lover. Two gorgeous, sleek (dare I say slick?!) pussys facing each other. Works for ME! She is thrilled. And heck, you only live once...
This time around!... heh! heh!
