Yesterday I went on my weekly shopping trip to the local Publix. I tell you, prices are just out of control, I don't know what the government figures are right now but inflation is just spiraling.
My favorite treat at Publix is of course the sour cream doughnut, a wonderful confection with absolutely no redeeming nutritional qualities to spoil the exquisite taste. They cost 69 cents each and I get one every few weeks when I go shopping hungry (something you should never do, but we all do it anyway).
Well, yesterday I discovered something utterly shocking. My doughnuts, lo, even the sour cream doughnuts, are not immune from the forces of consumer price inflation. The new price? A shocking 70 cents. 70 cents! My God! At this rate I'll never be able to afford them again.
