Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures

"I have a microwave fireplace in my house. The other night I laid down in front of the fire for the evening in two minutes." – Stephen Wright

One favorite car and another boyfriend later I find myself relocating and downgrading again .... I mean, downSIZING again. Downsizing - not downgrading - Must. Remember. And, while the tiny house movement is popular, there are lots of us who already live in tiny homes - called efficiency apartments. I’m thinking the only way I could live in less square footage is to commit a felony. 

But how do you know when you live in an efficiency apartment? Let me tell you!

-- The top of your fridge is your pantry
-- The only place to store your pots and pans is in the oven 
-- A toaster or microwave would have to be duct taped to the wall because there’s no counter space
-- There’s only one vent to heat and cool the place
-- The refrigerator has one rack
-- Three light switches control everything
-- The front door and the back door are the same
-- Your best friend walks in for the first time and now it's crowded
-- You always know when your neighbors are makin' up and breakin' up 

At least this winter I won't have a heating bill. I can just light a candle. But I'm not sure of the dating protocol here. If the two of us meet in the hallway, which one of us is supposed to back up?

For your next girlfriends’ get-together have a “small” party with a few friends and tiny hor d’oeuvres. Discuss the “small” things that matter in your lives. And fix this fabulous Mini Mango Moscato - pour into shot glasses.  

Mini Mango Moscato
4 oz moscato
2 oz white rum
2 oz mango juice
1 lime

Shake moscato, rum & mango juice with ice until very well chilled. Pour into shot glasses. Add a squeeze of lime. Makes 5.
