J-man and I were talking about all the fees I have to pay for him in high school. I said, "Dude. Do you have ANY idea how much your yearbook is this year?"

(Middle school yearbook is $25. I had to buy Bug's last night)

He guessed and guessed never getting close. Finally I told him it is $65 and that is just for the plain one. If he wanted his named stamped on it, it costs more... and there are other things they could do to it to make the price jump.

He said, "Aw man! I have $65 from my birthday."

I got excited and said "Sweet! You can buy your own yearbook! That is awesome."

J: "ooops. I only have $64..."

M: "That is fine. I can loan you a dollar."

J: (taking out his wallet) "Well, lookee here. I spent it all. I got nuttin."

M: (rolling eyes) "Fine son. I'll take care of it."

Then he proceeds to pull a wad of cash out of his wallet and claims "Fooled ya! I've got my cash right here, and I'm going to Walmart to buy one of those schaweet, little, plastic kiddie pools to chillax in."

Jeez - oh - pete.

I can empathize. lol - band is probably our biggest expense - marching and the school band x 2. Drives me nuts.

She said she was thinking of changing instruments [for college marching band] and I about freaked - I just finished paying off her $1000 flute. gak!

I definitely think this is a market driven entity with the year books tho' - I bet J man's is every bit as awesome as the Squirrels, but hers cost 35 bucks more. grrrrr.

I just thank god I only have to buy one when she is in college [her senior year] By then those dang things will probably 200-300 bucks. For a book. With 1,000 of kids she will never knew or see again. grrrr again. lol
