Caveat Emptor

by Mary J. Breen

I bought a new iron last week, and the handle's so big, I can't use it. So I took it back. Best one in the shop, the guy said. I said I don't care; it's too big. He looked me straight in the face and said, It's like a husband. You just have to get used to it.


Mary J. Breen lives in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. She is normally more long-winded.

If you never get used to it, at least, please, get to use it!

It's big and it's hard, but you'll learn to like it!
