    Pretty much the mantra of those of us who post our fiction as we write it. :-)

    I love this! So so true! *Off to go eat some of the good stuff! ; )

    That’s the attitude I’ve been taking with my produce lately! I realized that I buy all this great food with plan to make this delicious dish “one of these days” and then half of it goes rotten. So I’ve stopped “saving” food. I eat it as soon as possible after I buy it, figuring I’ll be buying more in the next couple of days anyway. I know this wasn’t the intent behind that quote, but I guess it could apply to anything.

    I agree. I’ve never been good with deferred gratification. (This could explain why I’m not a Christian – be good now and get rewarded later. Hmmmm. Not so much.) On the other hand, I am by nature frugal. As a result, I use/spend/share the good stuff in spurts. I’m working on smoothing out the process. Another 50 years and I should have it down.

    Oh man, I totally know what you mean! I buy cherries, or lettuce for salad, and then completely forget about it until it’s gone bad. :( Good idea to apply this philosophy to that!

    Lol. Maybe none of us will ever get it down in this lifetime. But isn’t that the point? To try harder and do better over time? :)
