We went out to dinner tonight. Max, Abram and I each got a meal and I got a drink. The bill came to $31. After tip.
I don't think our bill came to less than $40 once in Alexandria. My grocery bill last week was 2/3 what it has been for the past couple years.
At this rate Abram will be sipping his diet root beer in his skipper cap on a boat in no time. Pay cut, shmay cut. Well, it might be an inflatable row boat on the golf course's pond, but it will be a boat none the less.
