That sausage is fatal news from the World Health Organization yesterday? Which should have come subtitled, “Meat Is Murder — Of Yourself”? Totally great from a frugality standpoint.
Miserly people are the ones who, like Scrooge before his ghost-induced epiphany, impose their frugality on others.
I am not uniformly miserly. I allow myself the pleasure of good beer, periodic meals out at places where the entrees cost more than ten dollars, and, now and again, a vacation. But waste still feels deeply difficult.
