fourteen ninety-five

Why yes, now that you asked, and because I doubt you've heard this before from these parts, I can say that the $10.08 deal is still available for a limited time (as in two and a half months or so), and yet, I can also enthusiastically report that the product in question is now also available for a rather consumer-normative price of fourteen ninety-five from another outstanding online merchandiser. Yes, quite so. American dollars. And again, yes, I agree that it is not unlike two drug dealers peddling their wares caddy corner or across the street from each other. Ten O eight or fourteen ninety-five?

Imagine the delight you could have daydreaming about what to do with the four eighty-seven you saved. Or how spending the $4.87 on a book you may or may not ever read could save you from buying an extra pack of smokes or any highly calorified or artery-clogging product. Is there any way we could prove you'd be better off using the $4.87 for a 24 pack of 12 ounces cans of Coke at Wal-Mart?

OK, yes, I realize this is weird.
