Marriage 301, Lecture 501: Hiding the light under a bushel

Me: I want incandescent bulbs in our bathroom. The ones here [at the home of our friends Pete and Julie, whom we were visiting] are so much nicer. I look a million times better.

SH: But we have five bulbs in our bathroom! That would be 200 watts!

Me: So?

SH: They use more energy. They cost more.

Me: Big deal. They don't make me look like crap. Besides, how much more could it be? Fifty cents a month?

SH: Fifty cents a month is six dollars a year!

Me: That's one beer unit.
