My Bailout Request To The American People.......

Hello American People,

Times are tough out there. I am not happy about it. My shopping has been curbed tremendously. I can no longer shop with abandon. I haven't bought fabric in months. It has put a crimp in my style. Yesterday I had to think twice about buying a wonderful Starbucks Caramel Machiatto or having coffee at home. I wanted to go out to eat last night and (sob) had to cook instead. This will not do. So I thought about it and came up with a solution. I need a bailout. A cool million should make me feel all warm and fuzzy. I think that you, the American People, should each send me some of your hard earned cash. No checks please, just green pay-pah. Hurry dawdling. The weekend is coming up and I'd like to get out there to stimulate the economy some. Or at least have a beer and some nachos then take in a movie with the hubby. :)

Thank you for your time.

P.S. This is a very tongue in cheek post. Sigh.

Maybe your DH could just demand it from his employer. They surely don't mind demanding it from us, do they? Knowing that they're going to be taking more and more from our paycheck makes me not want to spend a dime and if others feel the same way, that surely isn't going to help our floundering economy. I'm surely no economist but dang it . . none of this makes any sense to me at all.

Oh man! While your readers are at it can they send me some too?

I haven't been shopping in almost a full year. Not for anything fun anyway. :(

You can direct any overflow over here to me. Retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be on the money part. lol
