I met Dan for coffee this morning at the Starbucks in our Kroger, and the following conversation took place.
Me: I ordered a coffee – and a scone.
Dan: Why did you get a scone?
Me: Because I was hungry.
Dan: Why didn’t you just go get something from Kroger?
Me: Because Kroger doesn’t have blueberry scones.
Dan: Are you sure?
(Dan leaves to get himself food from Kroger. Upon his return…)
Dan: I don’t mean this to be obnoxious, but my bagel, doughnut, AND coffee all cost the same amount of money as your scone.
Me: I bet your bagel, doughnut, AND COFFEE put together don’t taste nearly as good as my scone.
Dan: Nothing tastes as good as being frugal feels.
Me: Scones do.
