Easy Pay

Our long nightmare is over. Mark has received his replacement credit card. If you remember, Mark had his wallet lost/stolen two weeks ago. So ever since then I have heard nothing but whining about his having to go to the bank to withdraw money. This is something he did almost daily for the last two weeks. At least his visits to the bank kept him from relying on me for cash. It also kept his shopping to a minimum, until last Friday when the mail was delivered. It was as if Mark had won the lotto. Not only did he receive his replacement credit card, but his replacement ATM card arrived at the same time. One minute Mark was ripping open the mail, and the next minute he was flying out the door.
    "I'll be back."
    "Where are you going?" I asked.
    "Shopping.", he yelled as the door slammed behind him.
Mark had two weeks of shopping to catch up on. It actually took him two days to catch up, Friday and Saturday. I couldn't complain, it gave me some alone time that I sorely needed. Sunday however, Mark stayed home. It was okay, I still had my alone time. For four hours Mark shut himself off in the bedroom while he watched QVC. Next to The Real Housewives of (fill in the blank), his favorite television show is In the Kitchen With David  every Sunday. He tells me he never buys anything off that show, but on many a Wednesday mysterious packages arrive.


  1. One night I couldn't sleep and watched QVC. I wound up buying an electric guitar for hundreds of dollars. It's been sitting in the corner for four years. I don't even know how to play a guitar or even read music! Geeez

  2. I hear In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is real easy to learn.
