11 February 2009

I noticed something today that indicates what a total rip-off the 14th of February is.

Last week at our local Hy-Vee grocery store, one of the specials was a pound of strawberries for $1.88. Not a bad price, I bought a carton of them.

This morning I received the weekly specials email from Hy-Vee, and looking through it, I noticed a page that had Valentine's Day themed items on sale.

The same exact strawberries.

$6.88 a pound.

And people will buy them!!!

You can blame that on the movie 9 1/2 weeks.

You can blame that on the movie Fireproof.

LOL...really? I still haven't seen Fireproof. My parents-in-law have it, so we'll borrow it some time.

It will take a pretty big martini for me to endure Fireproof.
