I Could Almost Hear the Laugh Track In The Background

To prepare for an upcoming wedding, Lala had her nails done a while back and, (foolishly) thinking myself prepared for the answer, I asked her how much it had cost. I (thought I) knew it had to have been something ridiculous since me cutting my nails myself is more or less a five-minute procedure, and this had taken her well over an hour to have done, so I felt myself sufficiently prepared for any answer . . .

. . . except, of course, the one she gave me.

In that one moment, I could actually feel my modern, 21st century self fading away to be replaced by a black and white version of me better suited to a guest appearance on Father Knows Best as I fought to keep myself from incredulously shouting, “You spent how much on your nails?!”
