In my inbox this morn:
"Introducing the New Electro-FabuloExtremenator2000! It does everything the KindaFabGoodenator1000 does, but faster, more accurately, and comes in 5 Delicious Edible Chassis choices! And the best part? You can own this for the price of a cup of coffee a day! You heard right! For ONLY the price for your daily coffee runs!"
I was momentarily stunned and giddy with excitement. Wow, all that for such a pittance!
Then I unwrinkled my crumpled Starbucks receipt from this morning. Price of Grande Extra Foamy Mochalito Supreme with organic 1/2 and 1/2 Hold the Styrofoam Cup, Easy on the Free Trade, To Go cost me $17.80.
Hmm...though the Beef jerky flavored chassis on the new model is compelling, maybe I'll stick with the old model for a few more months.
