    I don’t get Marlene’s husband’s comment.

    If they have a menu outside with no prices on it, you can’t afford it.

    It’s like the question about a yacht; if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
    I actually do sort of agree with Burl, though. Sometimes riotously overspending on something is just pretense. “Look at me, I’m so rich I don’t even know how much I spend!” Bullpucky.

    Me neither – just can’t see what it has to do with anything.

    I understood the ‘if you have to ask, you can’t afford it’ implication, but I don’t know – ‘how low I can go’?????

    I guess he means you can’t get lower than a Penny?

    I wonder if the “No Way…” comment was accidently left on from the previous use of the image? Because, if not, I cannot make any sense out of it either. I wonder if perhaps Julie was writing it, may have stopped in her editing, and then sent it through not realizing the last bubble needed to either be filled in with a comment that would make logical sense with the earlier ones or perhaps she meant to simply remove that talk bubble?

    I can imagine them wandering in off the street with their Big Apple guidebook in hand, wearing their fanny packs and sensible walking shoes, sitting down at the Four Seasons, looking at the menu…hey, they COULD have been eccentric millionaires! (I went to a department store where all the ordinary looking sweaters were selling for hundreds of dollars. They were made from silk and cashmere instead of cotton or acrylic. And ordinary looking people were buying them – they were all RICH people, but they looked perfectly ordinary.)

    Maybe Burl is saying that with no prices he was going to haggle his own price? The “no way” being, we didn’t leave because of me, I offered them a price.

    People who eat as they do probably would not enjoy fine dining in any case. I love when we go out to a really special meal as does he. Funny tho’ – when another patron asked if there was a reason for our having the oysters appetiser and the rest of a very elegant meal, he just answered “because we’re together”. That IS very special. I’m always proud to be seen with him.

    DAZZ… is the “SCA” in your biography for the “Society for Creative Anachronism”? If so, do tell us a bit about it? I have read about the group and always thought it would be greatly fun to be a part of.
