The Envelope, Please…
Today, the mailman (truthfully the mailwoman because, well, he’s a she) brought us an envelope, which, in and of itself is not that strange. After all, it is her job.
This standard white mailer announced that it came from 50% recycled material… how thoughtful. It was thin, with a two small plastic windows, one above the other, announcing the recipient and the sender. The recipient you can guess.
The sender was the twins’ birth hospital.
As you might guess, this was a bill. It is not the first bill we have received; nor will it be the last, I’m sure. But this particular bill was an itemized jobber for hospital services rendered for Doss. So basically it was all the stuff the hospital did for Doss, excluding doctors’ costs.
I was surprised by the pre-insurance total. In fact, stunned would be a fair descriptor.
Would you care to take a guess? Actually, I want you to guess. What’s that you say? Where’s the incentive? Well, let’s make contest out of it.
The person who can get closest without going over wins a new How About Two? t-shirt before they are available for purchase.
Geez, I feel like Bob Barker.
