I was feeling a little on the downtrodden/weary side today and splurged on some pink peonies at the grocery store. A little old lady, incidentally, told me they were her favorite flower. Then she asked how much they cost. "A little pricey," I said, feeling embarrassed. "Don't I know it," she said. "They're even expensive in New York City." For the life of me, I couldn't think why they should be cheaper in NYC.
