Bill and I stopped by our neighborhood Staples on Monday to pick up the business cards we had ordered for Inside Aging Parent Care. We needed a padded mailing envelope to send some of the cards on to Judi. Bill went off in search of them while I waited at the printing and copying counter for the cards to be finished.
(Are they ever fast there!)
When Bill came back he had a huge package of padded envelopes in his hand. An increasingly familiar conversation followed:
Bill: This is all they had. It’s more expensive than buying a single, but they could easily last us for the rest of our lives.
Carol: Have you noticed how many times we’ve said that lately–that something will last us the rest of our lives?
Bill: Pretty soon we’ll be saying it about lunch.
