So the pacifiers disappear, no big deal, right? Just buy more. Yes, but apparently pacifiers are priced somewhere above emeralds (but good news -- below diamonds!) on a per ounce basis. If you do the math on the receipt you can see that I spent $35.85 on pacifiers a few days ago in an attempt to appease the black hole. Thirty-five dollars! That is a lot of money for what is basically a fake thumb.
And yes, if you look at the total at the bottom of the receipt, you can see that I spent $170 at Walgreens, and a lot of the amount (other than pacifiers) was for Vitamin D for mama and baby. That's somewhat aggravating considering the sun just gives Vitamin D away for free. But since I don't work in the fields all day, and Baby W's still on the young side for a job detassling corn, Vitamin D comes in a pill form for us.
When David lived in LA his car got stolen, and the police told him that his car was in Mexico by the time he even noticed it was gone. I'm wondering if that's what happened to our pacifiers. Right now they're on a truck bound for Tijuana. They're certainly pricey enough to support a black market. Mexicans, please don't steal our pacifiers! Leave that job for the Swiss.
