A coupla nights ago we heard a story that made us wonder. One of our deary friends was on a car-buying hunt, and when he asked for a certain auto's price to come down, the car sleazeman responded,
"You don't go to Dominick's and ask for Jewel's prices."
Hmm. And that's when the wondering started. Is he comparing the price of animal crackers to car buying? Could we, perhaps, beat the system and succeed in asking for Jewel prices while shopping at Dominick's? Since when is Jewel from the wrong side of the tracks and Dominick's all Upper East Side in the grocery store pecking order?
We think, for now at least, we'll be sticking to Jewel and public transport, thank you very much.
