Funny, I was thinking exactly the same thing last night while trying to balance my checkbook.
Problem was, the amount of money I have to balance wouldn't fill a kid's piggy bank. The recession is stretching its boney fingers around my neck like a creepy unrelenting death grip. Had to drink a strong cup of java just to distract myself.
Seeing kitty contemplate her windfall evoked a good giggle, reminding me once again the best things in life truly are free.
