Does this look like $1500 to you?

Img363 Honestly – does this plastic Walgreen’s bag look like it’s worth $1500? It is. Cause that is what I paid for it yesterday.

Fifteen hundred bucks.

One thousand five hundred dollars.

That is a lot of money.

Now don’t get me wrong. I didn’t spend $1500 for just the bag. That would have been crazy. No, for my $1500 I also got a couple tiny bottles of pills inside the bag. And inside the tiny bottles are a couple of handfuls of teeny-tiny pills of Lamictal that, fairly regularly, help keep Suzie’s seizures under fairly regular control.

So it’s pretty important stuff.

And it’s not all the time that this bag costs $1500. Only for the first few months of the year. Then it goes down some.

It just seems that when I go into a store and plop down $1500 I ought to walk out with a snazzy computer or a plasma TV or a couple dozen Ipods.

Not just a plastic bag filled with a couple of plastic bottles filed with little white pills.
