They are helpful about taking my money. On the cover of the issue I received yesterday was a tear out postcard to subscribe. It had a year’s subscription as $23.96. Standing by the mailbox I started to remove it from the cover to put into the outgoing mail slot. Before I could finish another postcard fell out of the magazine. Picked it up – another subscription postcard – this time for $21.96. Being somewhat of a financial wizard I went with the fall out postcard. I looked in my checkbook at last year’s price – $14.95. Everyone at the magazine must have received a nice raise this year.
The candy painting goes well with my Halloween sweet tooth. If I hadn’t spent so much money on that magazine I could have more candy. Still, all is not lost. This makes for a rational reason not to share my shortened supply of sweets with a hoard of scruffy children.
