Disappointed by cuteness
Why do I always think that Disappointed is spelled with two esses? Silly brain!
Perhaps, disappointed describes my feelings a bit strongly regarding my Recent acquisition of a pale pink Tofu bank, but here's the story:
I saw this little cutie at my favorite cute things store and on the generic tofu box style packaging, it said "tofu saver." I thought, "finally, someone else with my dilemma of how to save leftover tofu. Maybe it keeps even longer in this little box." I'll admit, I didn't look very hard at the item inside, it was too cute and I wanted it, no matter what it was. So, I bought it, brought it home, opened it up and was promptly shocked; it was a tofu shaped money bank. oh! that's what it meant by tofu saver. A tofu shaped block of plastic with a slit in the top designed for saving money. Makes sense. But I already have a piggy bank with kisses all over it and a little owl bank with glow in the dark eyes that scare me at night. I haven't filled those "savers" up yet.
Maybe I'll use this little pink creature to save up for some tofu, or perhaps I'll use it to save up for a trip to Japan. Who knows what I'll do with it, but despite it's total uselessness, I still like a happy bank named bean curd.
