Illustration Friday - Savour
OK, so here's the deal. It's not that I love Ketchup and want to savour it, although I do like Ketchup quite a bit. For much of my life, I thought it was normal to put it on pizza since this is what my dad taught me until I was informed several years ago (mostly by the horror on others faces) that it is, in fact, not normal to put Ketchup on your pizza.
When I thought of "Savour", I first thought of red wine because I do savour every sip. But then my mind went to Ketchup and body lotion because these are two things that I attempt to appreciate every single ounce by turning the bottles over and placing them into a measuring cup and using every last drop.
It is more about not letting anything go to waste and being frugal, really: "Use it up, wear it out, make do, do without". I learned this way of life from my mom who almost sliced her finger off when I was in high-school by cutting off the top of a bottle to scrape out as much as she could.
Savour every last drop!
