“This is the one you want, but it’s too expensive,” SH mused as he looked through the Sunday Target ad.
He showed me a steel trash can.
“It’s almost $100. That’s too much for a trash can.”
“No it’s not,” I argued.
“It’s a trash can!” he said.
“It’s something you see and use every day. It’s worth the money.”
“It’s a trash can.”
“How much do you pay for a Guinness?”
“So that trash can is like 23 Guinnesses.”
“Yeah, but you actually get enjoyment from a beer. This is a trash can!”
Me: Does it bother you that I don’t want a $28,000 wedding?
Me: Does it bother you that I don’t want a fluffy white muffin dress?
Me: Does it bother you that I don’t want a big diamond engagement ring?
SH: A little.
