Pop Quiz: Let's Play Guess the Cheapskate
Would you guess me (holding a book with CHEAPSKATE on the cover) or the man on the right?
Well if you guessed I'm the cheapskate, you are so wrong. The man on the right is the ultimate cheapskate. Literally. It's Jeff Yeager, the author of The Cheapskate Next Door. And according to his definition of cheapskate, I am not even close to being one. (Not that there's anything wrong with being a cheapskate.) I should call my sister and break the news to her - she won't believe it.
I got to meet Jeff this morning during the filming of an upcoming tv project that is a highly guarded secret. I could tell you more about it but then I would have to kill you. And I don't want to do that since it would cut into my shopping time. Once the information becomes declassified, I will let you know more about it.
p.s. One of the funniest things that happened this morning was that a yardsale customer (it was being filmed at a real live yardsale) starting browsing thru a bag of camera accessories that the film crew had left unattended.
p.s.s Yes, I know my hair looks messed up in the photo. I had taken off my crown earlier in the day (I like to blend in with the regular yardsailors and that's hard to do that while wearing a crown) and that combined with the humidity and the heat, made my hair the mess that it is.
