YESTERDAY I RECEIVED a check for selling my self-published book online. I was very excited when Sheryl handed it to me. Wow! A check! Shall we book a cruise to German wine country?
"Congrats," Sheryl said. "It's for $12.32. Don't spend it all in once place."
"You could buy me a latte," Sheryl said.
I could. Actually, I need new guitar strings. I wonder where I could find those? I could get lunch. We probably need dog treats. I need new clothes after Angus rolled in something dead on our walk yesterday, then smeared it all over me on the car ride home. Or, I could pay for the want ad in the paper ("Free to good home. One smelly puppy. Just kidding. Sort of.")
Or, maybe I will hang the check on the wall.
Nah. I need guitar strings, and making Sheryl happy with a latte is a very good thing.
