Cost of Living

As some of you may know, I spent the past weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina at my sister-in-law's father's second wedding. It actually turned out to be a better time than it sounds, and was a pretty good weekend. However, I will have to give the crown of "Highlight of the Weekend" to Turkey's friend, a young girl, fresh out of college, getting ready shake off the one-horse town Winston-Salem to start her new life in the bright lights of Raleigh.

She lamented to us, however, that with this move comes consequence: "It's </i>sooo</i> expensive to live in Raleigh", she moaned.

Gamer, Jennifer, Turkey and I find ourselves biting our lips in a failed effort to disguise the grins creeping across our faces and choking down laughter. One of us managed to spit out, "Really? How expensive is it?"

"I have to pay Four Hundred and FIFTY Dollars for my one bedroom!"

BWA-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
