Not the normal “how much will it be after tax?” or “which is the better deal?” questions. No, I was standing in line at the deli counter…a pound of ham. She put it on the scale and it was 0.96 pounds. She cut one more slice and it was 1.01. 20 slices per pound, not too bad. I asked for half a pound of turkey breast.
