I stopped at a garage sale today and spied these Dr Suess books ...This is how the conversation went down:
Me: What's the price of the Dr Suess books?
Nice garage sale lady: a quarter
Me: I'll take them, counting out three dollars for the 12 books.
Nice garage sale lady: No, just a quarter!
Me (in my Boston accent that comes back when I am excited): A quata for all 12?
Nice garage sale lady: Yup, just a quarter!
Me (doing the happy dance): Great, here's a quata. Thanks!!
These are for Carter, of course...books to read when he visits me in July!
