Pretty flowers! Right? And did Bossy mention they were free because she grows them in her garden? And did Bossy mention she put them on her table to distract you from the paperwork collecting on Bossy’s laptop?
Because the news gets worse. You are looking at Bossy’s receipts for the Election night party she is throwing with her friend Martha.
Food = $55.15
Alcohol = $67.77
Grand total = thank gah they only elect presidents every four years.

Thank goodness! You spent more on the alcohol than the food!

Hi Bossy. I have followed “grandpa Terry” and his newsletter for years. He is including your blog in this weeks Budget Stretcher.

Sorry this is the right link

Let’s put a positive spin on this, please. How much food did you score for $55.15? Also, will you be able to use any pantry items to supplement?
I feel the need to justify every purchase these days.

It’s worth every cent.

This will be a dawning of a new age in American politics, so grand party is a must!
Heather saysNovember 4, 2008 at 11:24 am
Should have scrapped the food. Put it all toward the damn liquor store bill from Team Bossy cuz hello – I don’t want them sending Guido after me…

This really isn’t so bad. It’s a party! A special occasion! Which I assume will include other people. I mean, it’s not like Bossy will be imbibing all by herself. Right?

Well….. you really could divide it out amongst the number of attendees..
Or you could charge cover for the event? Maybe give a not-so-subtle hint by strategically placing a “Poverty Party” donation jar near, say – the liquor??
Besides – Getting out of debt is like being on a diet – you need to leave room for celebrations and some spontaneous events!
Lisa saysNovember 4, 2008 at 12:35 pm
you can always put out a jar for campaign contributions……
Lisa saysNovember 4, 2008 at 12:54 pm
Seems like the booze should be a little more than that, is that just for your part of the consumption???
har har har..
Peg saysNovember 4, 2008 at 4:09 pm
Thank you for not giving up the Metzer Ferlot. Party on!
tj saysNovember 4, 2008 at 4:45 pm
…That’s all for the pre-Election Party…where’s all the booze for when they announce Barack Obama is now President of The United States? Hmmm? Gotta have backups girl…better get yourself on out and stock up!
…Blessings that this is a true defining day of change… :o)
krg saysNovember 4, 2008 at 6:59 pm
well, if you can’t spend a little on the election results, what can you? oh, I know, spend it on me for our 41st anniversary! happy day!
Jill saysNovember 4, 2008 at 7:14 pm
It’s gonna be worth every penny. I am so wishing I was having an alcohol fueled election-night party, rather than nursing a fat, hungry newborn while nursing a glass of wine.
Drew saysNovember 5, 2008 at 10:11 am
With your liquor bill being so low I have to ask, “Did you buy anything for your guests?” Man, a BYOB election party. hahahahah.
Seriously though. I think a tip jar or a donation jar strategically placed near the ‘bar’ would have been perfectly appropriate. You don’t need to say a word about it. Just leave it out. I am also a fan of pot lucks so to keep food costs down you could have send out e-invites for a potluck asking people to bring their favorite “good luck” dish.
kate saysNovember 5, 2008 at 12:25 pm
all for the cause.
