In my defense…..
Running out of bullets is like running out of gas in an airplane, it’s just a real problem. Ok, so I have extra clips strategically placed in our cars and around the house…. it just makes sense to me. I ask the question…..How can a man have too many bullets in a shootout?
I write the date I start running in a pair of shoes with a sharpie. I try to run about 500 miles in a pair and then I wash them and wear them to work. I think that makes perfect sense…..how else will I know when I started running in them?
Why take a chance on running out of peanut butter. It’s just not worth it so I make no aplogy for calling 2 jars an emergency. It was an emergency then and it will be in the future if we get down to 2 jars. I call this an inventory control problem and Paige clearly knows the re-order point is around 5 jars. And she knows I get jittery when we get down around 4.
I only have one extra Blackberry phone. If one dies, I’m ready to roll. I don’t know what she is talking about saying I have 4. However, that may be a good investment as they are likely going to become collectors items. You gave me a great idea Paige…our financial future is secure!
Admittedly, I did hang on to the Casio organizers too long. But, I sold the 12 or 13 I had stockpiled on Ebay for a profit.
The pocket knives I have (12 or 13 identical) are not made anymore and collectors items. If I don’t lose them all I will make money on them and at the current rate I have enough until I’m 130. My calculations may be off a bit because I may lose them at a faster rate as I get older….I didn’t factor that in.
The reading glasses issue…..OK so I am an idiot. In my defense, I am new to the needing reading glasses game. I used my time tested formula of buying enough for my life expectancy and this time it simply isn’t going to work. I have about 15 pairs of 1.25’s and I had no idea that I would need to continue to increase their strength over time. You will be glad to know I am developing a spreadsheet that tells me exactly how many of each strength to buy so I have the next 30-40 years covered. I think I can sell my 15 pairs and break even minus the shipping.
I’m not even going to defend the boots. I took one look in Paige’s closet at her shoes….I am not even going to defend the boots.

Made me laugh out loud Hanky!!
My name is Carole Ann and I regularly stalk this blog but have never posted a comment. I had to tell you that these last posts have made me laugh out loud, and if I recall there was a lawnmower post of equal fun. Yall must make a fun couple. God bless and keep up the posts!
Lol…I am laughing my head off over here!!! I love you both!!! Btw…Carole Ann (above) is my real life buddy 🙂
Hilarious, you two are! And it totally reminds me of the banter between my hubby and I. A spreadsheet…he has one for everything. He has a formula for everything. It cracks me up listening to him teach math "tricks" to our 8 yr old (but they are working!). Blackberry…he won't retire it either but I know he is secretly envious of my iphone. Seriously, loved these last two posts. 🙂
How I love you both! You are such special people to all of us and especially God. Thank you for your wonderful love for each other and us!

If this doesn't describe Hank in a (pea)nutshell I don't know what does. Love you you ridiculous, silly man.
It takes a real man to post a rebuttal…hahaha. That was sooooo funny!!!
