Confucius say

Many times on this blog I've referred to our budget. The ear doctor and I try very hard to stick to our budget. This is especially difficult when we go to the grocery store together.

Not because we buy a bunch of junk food or anything, but because of the little "game" he likes to play.

I hate pushing the cart or carrying the basket, so he willingly takes that job. The game begins when he starts randomly adding strange items to the cart and waiting for me to notice. This game becomes pretty stinking hilarious as we go past the bulk foods aisle and I end up with 10 lbs of canned artichoke hearts. Usually I'm really on top of my game, not a single package of chicken hearts and gizzards is missed by my wary and trained eye.

Last night, I was not on my game. I got home and while unloading the bags found these two little gems:

Pretty sure neither of these were on my list. What am I going to do with these?

I turned to the ear doctor, and asked him, "just how do these fit into our budget, my sweet darling?" He gave me a sheepish grin and shrugged his shoulders.

A few hours later we dove into our dinner, capping off the culinary event with some delicious fortune cookies. Look at his fortune:

I've never really bought into the whole Confucius thing, but I may have to give it a try.
