Proportional celebratory response

It was a good week.

On Monday, Christina got a title bump to VP of Operations. She also got a raise.

“Let’s celebrate,” I said. “Want to go out to dinner?”

She could’ve picked somewhere fancy, but instead she chose Tender Greens, which is about as fancy as you can get and still use cafeteria trays. Dinner for two: $30, give or take, including tax & tip.

On Wednesday, I sold an essay.

“We’ve got to celebrate,” Christina said. “What are we doing for dinner?”

“Leftover chicken cacciatore.”

Dinner for two: $4, maybe.
