Timing is everything

MommaLlama: I NEED an electric pencil sharpener!

Daddio: Well, a coworker is trying to sell his FL50. It's practically brand new and I can get it for less than half price...

M: DEAL!

D: Sweet!

M: Also, I want some things to decorate our school calendar.

D: Well, the deal has already been done. But okay!

Did you notice how I managed to spend like five times as much and still came out as the benevolent one? That's strategery.

You asked for the flash first, then offered up the pencil sharpener as a way to soften the blow... and then I added the bulletin board decorations so that in my head it would seem more fair (like I was getting more... quantity).

Funny how he left the flash part out of the post!
