I was there, walking into my friends house, looking forward to seeing her, catching up with her and the kids and everyone else she'd invited along, having some food, and ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION OF BUYING ANYTHING, not even a token purchase. I'm too much of a penny pincher for that. She got me through the door, on a Friday night (or was it Saturday?) I brought mother, we got the numbers up, and I was going to be sitting through however long of this cleaning melarky. That was more than enough support to expect of any friend. And did I mention I'm a penny pincher?
