On Chatting About Crocs, Y'all

@bgprincipessa Car2Go solves the ZipCar problem entirely! You can pick up a Car2Go wherever you see one and then you are charged by the minute for as long as you use it.

On How Much Do Plungers Cost? An Oral History

Our plunger was under $10, but we had to spend approximately $20 more because my husband was too mortified to go to the cashier with a single plunger. "She's going to think I'm sick!"

On How the Baby-Sitters Club Does Money: Abby

The only thing I remember about Abby was her "accidentally" buying the answers to a test at school and getting suspended and trying to hide it from her mom. And then she got caught and grounded, but it was okay because she learned from it and made a speech at her Bat Mitzvah about it. And I think she was sporty and had a buttload of weird allergies? And maybe her sister had scoliosis?
