I LOVE (love, love, love) my pets but this is so many thousands of dollars that my mind is a little boggled.

On How Grandparents Do Money

"One time, while he and I were in the backyard in Vermont, he confessed to me that he didn’t like the patio furniture my grandma had bought. “Why don’t you say something?” I asked. “Because it doesn’t matter,” he said, “and that’s how you stay married.”" This is so so true and I love it. The whole article was fantastic, but that was my favorite.

On The Cost of Getting a Pap Smear (In Canada)

I'm very interested in what things cost around the world, but super disinterested in combing through a bunch of $22/hr emotional upheaval to calculate that oh, the pap smear/treatment/soap actually cost $48 all told. (NB: I'm kind of a curmudgeon and bad at math.)

Going out on Valentine's Day is often expensive and crowded and noisy and I just don't think it is worth it. CAKE, though, cake is a great idea. This lady who needs a $100 visit to the salon before EACH date is living on a different planet than I am.
