Slow mail day yesterday. I only got three credit card offers inthe mail. This morning, I got a call from a telemarketer with anothercredit card offer. We bought an espresso machine at the neighborhood garage last weekend forten dollars. We had been half-heartedly looking at espresso makers forthe past few months, but the one-hundred dollar-plus cost kept our walletsin our pockets. However, faced with a hardly used machine for tendollars, our will-power collapsed. Since Saturday, Mr. Coffee has beenon an extended vacation while we have lattes in the morning instead ofcoffee.
