Price Inflammation

So K and I are having a conversation tonight about iTunes.

She cleaned her room today and discovered an unused iTunes gift card. It's amazing what you can find when you clean your room, I said to her.

Hmfpfh, she snarled at me.

Then she started shopping. At iTunes. The store she has been boycotting since they changed their prices from $0.99 to $1.29 for a song. She thought that was a ridiculous jump in price and hasn't bought anything from them for over a year.

Good K. Standing on her principles. I like that.

Until she found this gift card. Once she started shopping, she found they had some of her favorite bands priced at $.79 a song. That made her happy.

But what about your boycott? Most of their songs are still $1.29, I said to her.

Well, I've come to terms with inflammation, she replies matter-of-factly.


You mean inflation? I ask.

She giggles. Yes, that's what I mean.
