SOMETHING REALLY CHEAP

After being away on business, a man thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift. "How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50.00. "That's a bit much," he said, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.00. "That's still quite a bit," he complained. Growing annoyed, the clerk brought out a tiny $15.00 bottle. "You know," he said, "What I mean is that I'd like to see something really cheap." The clerk handed him a mirror.

(From Nathan Johnson's Sermon "A Priceless Gift")
