Tofu Nuggets

Why must I be trapped in a consumer economy?

I simply hate paying money for goods and services.

I work so hard for my money. Why must I give it away in exchange for necessities like food and shelter???

I was in the market for some new clothes. So what did I do? I did what you have to do in America and I bought some. I went to a couple of stores and I tried some things on and I bought what looked decent on me. I spent probably $300 on some overpriced fabrics that happened to hug me in the right places. What gives??? There’s got to be a way around this. What if we put some flat rates on clothes? Like, a new top – maybe $3? A sundress – a modest $4.

Though, I will continue to pay globs of money for jeans because whoever is making mine are magicians of the booty-shaping variety and I feel like I’ll never pay them back for all they’ve given me.

    Had something very much like this as an appetizer last week. Quick fried chicken pieces with a spicy Asian sauce, spring onion,…….. oh wait. My bad. My appetizer was actually delicious and wasn’t similar to bean curd at all. Sorry!

    Clothing prices are ridiculous. If you have the time and a craft mind maybe try to make a sundress? I want to try it out but am waiting for the time frame when I know I’ll finish it.

    Hi
    Never been a huge tofu fan but this looked great and got me hungry to look at. I have to admit though that I love tofu the more often I eat it. I never liked avocado or Campary either at first but got to love it the more often I had it. 🙂
    Thanks
    Oli
