TPiRecap: 23 April 2014

Today's recap is brought to you much later than I'd like, and with absolutely no thanks whatsoever to a raging headache and general exhaustion on both the physical and emotional levels. I'll do what I can, but if I'm not as entertaining or as interesting as usual, please understand that it's not by intent.

Drew, about to do the reveal: "Actual retail price is..."
Unidentifed Peanut Gallery-ite: "EXPENSIVE!"

Well, it was... heh.

One Wrong Price:
  1. LG four-door refrigerator (GOS)
  2. Samsung 27" touchscreen computer (8GB RAM, 1TB HD, Epson AIO; RR)
  3. Inspire multistation home gym (RR)

The only thing I feel confident in guessing is the refrigerator today. I know that gym price of $3,495 is correct, and the computer being $1,980 is eminently believable.

I actually thought the fridge would be cheaper than the posted price. Either way... ugh.

Logically, we can now rule out the 8 as being the tens digit of the car (the stemware pretty much has to be $80x), so that leaves it down to the 1, 3, or 4. And all three look about equally right to me. This may not end well.

Unfortunately, that can sometimes happen in this.

Is it Destiny's... well, destiny, to end up on Leftover Island? Let's see. Lucky for her, she's got the advantage at least...
