My family and I went out to eat at a rather pricey restaurant. Instead of getting something out of the ordinary, my son opted for a burger.
I looked at the menu. "Twenty-six dollars for a burger?" I said. "This had better be the best burger you've ever had in your life!"
The burger came. It was quite substantial, but in my opinion, not worth twenty-six dollars. My son ate about half of it. I shook my head. "Are you kidding?" I asked. "You're only going to eat thirteen dollars worth of a twenty-six dollar burger?"
He grinned at me, and picked up the remaining part of the bun. "Well, I could give you a bun in your hair. Then you'll have a thirteen dollar hair-do, which will make up for the part I didn't eat. That's cheap!"
Right. A great deal! Too bad I didn't take it.
