View From The Ditch Bank

STOUGH--RHYMES WITH ROUGH, AS IN STUFF. What, exactly, is stuff. And what is meant by the word, stuff? I've got stuff. OK, but what is stuff. Let's examine this a bit. MLWFAE and I were in a restaurant in Albuquerque this morning eating breakfast. ( Shoney's, if you were wondering. Actually, Shoney's even if you weren't wondering. ) At a nearby table there was a couple of couples, as in two men, two women, and they were having a conversation. Yes, "T" we also evesdrop. Easy to do when they are so close and not trying to keep their voices down. But they were talking, or conversing, about casino's, of which they seemed to have a very intimate working knowledge of same. They were also talking about a few other things. Like stuff. One of the women said she was going to go to a store and buy some stuff. Now, if you need eggs, you say, I am going to buy some eggs. Or maybe you say I need to go get some groceries. In the food department, you might say I need to get some stuff for meatloaf. Now, that is kinda specific, cause you have something definite in mind. Not just stuff, but stuff for meatloaf. You might also say I'm going to buy a couch, or maybe some shoes. But this lady said she was going to go but stuff. She was going to stores and look and buy stuff. Seems kinda expessive to go buy stuff, and not know what you are going to buy, but buying just cause you want stuff. If you don't know what you are going to buy, and you have no real need for anything, maybe you could save the stuff money and have more to lose at the casino. And that's the View From The Ditch Bank
