Me: What's that?
SH: I ordered movies from woot.com.
SH: It was a good deal!
We pause as we both think about what a "good deal" is. To me, it's a Dooney and Burke purse at the Goodwill for $40, although had I been more on the ball and gone two days earlier for Half-Price Mondays, I could have gotten it for $20. It's raspberries at the bargain counter for 89 cents when they are usually $4.
To SH, however, a "good deal" is something that is advertised, that he can buy online and that will be delivered to our doorstep.
Me: What are the movies?
SH: Here's the list.
I look at the list. Classic movies and crap I don't want to see. No, I have no wish to pay for a Michael Moore screed. Other movies that I can probably get FREE from the library. Well, not free. We pay $5,000 a year in property taxes. So movies we have already paid for with our taxes.
Me: I could have gotten these from the library.
SH: But now we have them in case we want to watch a movie. We don't have to go to the library to get them.
Me: "We?" I'm the one who goes. All you have to do is say you want it!
SH: It was a good deal.
Me: It's not a good deal if you could have gotten it for free.
