    “That is certainly fortuitous. I have written another list of things I forgot to put on the first list. You can pick them up when you get the paper.”

    Some people still read news in non-electronic form.

    Local daily paper in (name your town) now costs $3.50 at the store, $4.50 on Sundays. That’s about $110 a month,and over $1,300 a year. Or has Earl forgotten that, too?

    Sometimes, when I am in a hurry, I see the name of the listed product but don’t read the entire description of contents, so I get the wrong version. Sometimes that turns out OK but mostly not.

    The major thing we’re using the paper for these days is to house-train our three little puppies…

    As long as you got everything on the list you’re good. Too tired to read the paper anyway, get it tomorrow.

    I’m surprised Opal trusts Earl to get everything on the list. That’s not the Opal I know from reading this strip.

    After 20 years of taking a local paper, I stopped its delivery—not because of the rising costs but the ever-increasing non-deliveries I endured. In my last month of subscribing, there were 12 non-deliveries. My wife loved the crossword puzzles and I enjoyed leisurely reading the paper that had dwindled in content. At least I no longer trudge up to the road and search for the morning’s paper.

    If you kept Opal’s list you could use that.

    Wait! Give Opal a moment to check your work so you can get your paper and make the requested exchanges.

    People should go digital. Mine is $10 a month and you can print out the games you play.

    Our paper, which used to be a daily, was 50 cents. Just for old time’s sake I was gonna buy one the other day…4 bucks. Think I’ll pass!

    Our daily paper (Mercury News) is $3.00 (plus tax) per day. But I buy it at one of those dispensers in a strip mall where the price is $2.00. They haven’t changed the price in the dispenser for over 3 years!

    If you’d like to split your sides laughing, try not to be offended by the title. This lady is hilarious. I’m pretty sure I would have done the same as him in this scenario.

    I just did this very thing on Monday! I tried to squeeze in a trip to the store before a meeting, to buy a few things, but one thing in particular. I got the other items, as well as a few other things not on the list, but forgot to get the one item I specifically decided to go to the store for.
