... as though to fan the flames of the undifferentiated ire I seem to be suffering from today, as gestured at in that last post -- don't you have days when general pissed-offedness just seems to pour itself thickly and stickily all over everything, like chocolate sauce? (No no, not like chocolate sauce. Over-used motor oil? Green slime?) -- one of my sisters has just sent me an email pointing out that if you think petrol is expensive, you should see how much some other well-known liquid commodities cost per litre.
Evian Water, $7.86 (hah, tap water must cost nearly as much as that by now, all up)
Red Bull, $11.80
Bundy Rum, $40.80
Robitussin cough mixture, $199.00
Visine Eye Drops, $379
Britney Spears Fantasy Perfume, $580.00 (to smell like Britney??)
L'Oréal Revitalift Day Cream, $599.00 (uh oh)
Printer ink, $1,040
Actually, that makes me feel kind of better. Perspective is a wonderful thing.
