Online reviews are the best kind of word-of-mouth for helping an author’s book make it in the world and I would be so grateful for a few words from you.
Thanks so much and enjoy today’s Ailantha!
However, by now, after looking at all these blueberries, I found that I was, in fact, in the mood for blueberries. But which among all these options was actually the best price for blueberries? And, as the packages all looked pretty much alike, which package went with which price, anyway?
"Um..." she said as she compared containers to price displays, "I think this one...um, goes with...this price...and, uh, this one goes with...that price? You know, let me ask him."
She sought out a nearby fellow employee who did, in fact, seem better acquainted with which berry went with which price.
"But," said I, "some are sold by the ounce and some by the pint. Which is the cheapest?"
The worker laughed as if this were the differential calculus problem of blueberry pricing. In short, he didn't really know.
After I'd thanked the workers and they were out of earshot I muttered, "Well, snap," and knew that I would have to engage my own brain and call on my own considerably meager math aptitude if I wanted to figure out the best price of blueberries.
I knew that 16 oz. equaled one pint, which seemed to make the $4.49 pint the best option.
And what luck: a dry point was actually more than a wet pint!
I typed into my phone, "How much does a pint of blueberries weigh?"
Turns out that besides a wet pint and a dry pint, there is also a blueberry pint,
In any case, having at least three different size definitions of "pint" is confusing enough. As the Lieutenant Colonel would say,
I would agree. I decided to go with the strawberries.
