that’ll be two bucks, chuck

I should be at the gym right now. I got up early to go before class, I was sporting my gym shorts and my gym undershorts, my face set in a grim determination, ready to endure pain and sweatiness on the way to my ultimate goal of good health and hotness, when I stepped out of my apartment into a beautiful day only to discover that my bike’s rear tire is flatter than I care to think about. Without enough time to walk to the gym and back before class, I took my bike across the street to the bike store where I had a coupon to get a flat tire changed for $2. Normally I’d change the tire myself, but you can’t argue with two dollars. I couldn’t get anybody I know to change my tire for two dollars, trying to get somebody to get you a glass of water just because you’re lazy would cost you more than two bucks. Good stuff. There’s only one other thing I can think of I’ve paid only two greenbacks for that I really got my money’s worth out of.

  2. I heard that the real reason Charles Shaw was $2 was because the owner of the company was getting a divorce from his wife, and was legally forced to share half the profits with his ex. In order to spite her, he pretty much sells it at cost to Trader Joes. Just pennies over whatever amount he needs to bring in to keep from running the vineyard into the ground. Just a little tid-bit for ya ;) Hope SLO os treating you well! :)
