But came home with lots more,

Now my bank account is in the red,

I’m sure you understand that score,

Maybe I should have taken just enough money instead…


Isn’t that always the way,

I should have gone to a local store,

Then I would not have had as much variety,

Maybe from food I should practice sobriety…


So if you’ve done the same,

Don’t think yourself in anyway lame,

As on yourself you can only lay blame,

Doesn’t matter whether you are male or female,

Dark hair or blond, we all seem to suffer the same…

As Leah used to say to me when I desired as you...

"Lust of the flesh...just lust of the flesh"

and all I wanted is some cube steak and gravy...have a great to work now...keep us in your prayers as we leave for Charleston in the morning for another angiogram.

God Bless

Ain't it the truth? My husband and I never go shopping together anymore because we always end up buying twice as much! This is so "today" Funny but so true it hurts.
