The wisest decision possible in that situation. Maybe if she'd gotten all three rolls I could see throwing this back to try for the car (and if the car itself wasn't a cheapo Spark), but you'd still have to sell me on it, I think. In this situation it is simply the correct thing to do.

One Wrong Price:
  1. Alexander McQueen designer shoes & accessories (MA)
  2. Not-Golden-West-Billiards pool table w/accessories (RR)
  3. Electrolux 24" stainless stele dishwasher (RR)

Since the pool table isn't Golden West, it might not be as pricey as a Golden West table; that would be my pick, I think. On the other hand, I think I see a small sliver of red sticking out from behind the ARP flap on the dishwasher stand, but it could simply be an optical illusion and my own paranoid nature about these things... we shall see...

...and it wasn't an illusion. It's the same thing I called up a few months back, and they really have to watch out for that.

Anitra, our newest Rowbird, is wearing a shirt that says "Got My Name From the Show." Obviously in reference to Anitra Ford, one of the original Price models from back in the half-hour era.

Did Tracy seriously just one-dollar a WWII vet? Arthur's cane might have something to say about that... ;^)

LOSS

Another senseless victim of megarithmophobia (fear of large numbers). 8^/

(Note: I made that term up, but it comes from two real phobias, megaphobia [fear of large things] and arithmophobia [fear of numbers]. Seemed logical to combine them in this case... hence, "megarithmophobia.")
