Day Old

Day Old

She squeezed all the breads. Some were hard, some were almost soft. 25% off, baked yesterday, the sign said. The hard breads she didn’t look at again. She’d have to go to the dentist if she tried to eat a slice. She smiled at the soft breads. I won’t feel too poor if I buy this one.  How many times have I had to pretend the thing I really wanted to buy was not there? It was too expensive; paying full price is something I can’t do anymore. I’ve had to cross the street in search of a bargain. I’ve done it too many times—there have been too many times of scrimping and saving. How tired am I of this! Will this go on forever?
