Just when you’re going along minding your dollars and
sense cents, something presents itself that throws a wrench in the works.
This past weekend it was a fundraiser for the local community theater that played the part of the wrench — and keeping with that tool theme, Bossy and her husband were screwed because there is little they cherish more than their local community theater.
So Bossy and her husband splurged for the tickets necessary to attend the event, and it sort of worked out financially because Bossy drank her weight in champagne — but just when Bossy thought she had the cost of patronage all figured out, Bossy’s husband got ambitious with a roll of raffle tickets.
In the past, when someone or something has come a-callin’ for a handout, Bossy has pointed that concern in the direction of someone better off financially — but this is becoming more difficult in the current economic climate. And while Bossy tries to collect her own finances around her, many of the things she cherishes, like state-funded libraries and things having to so with the arts, are sinking, fast.
It’s a conundrum. What says Bossy’s council?
