Whoaaa…listen to the (bargain) music
I like me a good bargain. It gives me a sense of satisfaction that I hunted and gathered with excellence, that I conquered Mt. Retail and lived to shop another day.
I really ought to get a special cape for my skills. It only seems right to have a uniform of sorts.
Don’t get me wrong—I’m not cheap. I like well-made things, beautiful things, things intelligently and creatively designed. I believe those kinds of things are worth money. If I don’t have the money, then I will do without.
It probably won’t surprise you to learn that I get Groupon offers in my email. Every day there’s something new on sale. You gotta admit, that’s kind of exciting.
I have to say, however, that I’m not sure how I feel about today’s offer.
Today’s Featured Deal is a ticket to see Peter Frampton and The Doobie Brothers in concert together for $22.50, discounted from $43.30. Yes, you read that correctly. Peter Frampton. The Doobie Brothers.
Um…does Peter Frampton know he’s now Groupon-able?
And when did The Doobie Brothers become the sort of band you need a discount to make worth seeing?
Is this better or worse than being consigned to playing Mississippi casinos?
I’m feeling vaguely distressed and confused, in a baby boomer sort of way…
