Oh the bubble bath would be nice right now. I just thought of that with my aching back. But I used it all. I don't save things for special occasions.
I'm not sure I ever posted my philosophy on that. Back when I worked in the retirement home I heard of a man with a beautiful nightgown hanging in his closet. It was about thirty years old and never worn. The reason he had it was because his wife bought it for herself and was saving it for a special occasion. She passed away suddenly and the man kept it as a reminder that special occasions may never arrive if that's what you're waiting for.
After hearing that I drank all my good wines right off. And nowadays I don't save anything. I enjoy them as soon as I can. But now I have no bubble bath when my back's a smartin'. So it goes.
