When Honesty Is The Best Policy

For the past few years, I’ve been cleaning with vinegar. I started out buying it at my local grocery store, but when it ran out, I switched to purchasing it at the hardware store. I discovered it was cheaper there, and guess who loves a good bargain?

But today I discovered something even more important than a good bargain. My discovery came about because I needed a new supply of TP and the first store I went to didn’t have the kind I wanted. So I went downtown to a comparable store. And since I was there anyway, decided to get vinegar. Initially, I couldn’t find it. But then the clerk showed me where. And the first thing I saw, when he handed me the bottle, was the label. Which said Nice! in big letters. I felt it was paying me a compliment. It also said Honest.

Which really made my day.



I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

      1. If a certain RR blogger got enough views from a fellow RR blogger, the prize was a roll of toilet paper that never ran out. Eva S. promised it, but then alas, Red Room closed and I never won it.
