Well, the Gods do have ways of telling you that what you have done is right. For example, I am on a very limited budget, and $20 represents a disproportionately large part of my discretionary funds. So here is the context. I had driven my roommate over to pick up some food, and while he was doing that, I decided to go up to Long & McQuade, the local musical instrument store just to pass some time oogling all the bright shiny instruments, but I had forgotten that they had moved from the Altavista/Bank location...so I ended up at Value Village, wondering around. I dug through the CDs there, and found Japanese pressing of the first Mannheim Steamroller album. At $1.99, it's a deal and a half! Of course, I also had do dig through the SF Books section...and I found a complete set of Robert J. Sawyer's WWW trilogy in hardcover! So I grabbed them...and then checked the prices...they were $6 a piece. I thought about if I could afford them...but, I decided that I should probably pick them up, since when I was I ever going to have a chance to get all three in hardcover at anywhere near that price! So I bought them and the CD.

And Gods smiled upon me for doing so. How do I know? Well, when the cashier rang up the sale, she told me the total, and I laughed. It came up to exactly.....$21.12.
