Valentine Repercussions

KtLW has left me and I'm at a loss to explain why...

Taxes are up again this quarter and she told me we had to cut back on expenses--I had to give up drinking beer. Now, contrary to the *persona* I normally use here, I'm not a big drinker. At most, I'll do four or five beers on a Saturday afternoon.

So I gave up beer.

But I noticed the other day when she came home from an expedition to the mall with her girlfriends, one of the receipts included $85 for makeup.

I said, "Wait a minute--I've given up beer and you haven't given up anything!"

She replied, "I buy that makeup for you, so I can look pretty for you."

I said, "Well, geez--that's what the *beer* was for!"

I don't think she'll be back...

Heh. Tip of the flight helmet with the ding from the AK round to OB.
