[Augie's thought process today as I walked through Costco]

[Augie] Hm... I wonder what new electronics they have?!

[Augie] Wow, this new Flip HD camcorder sounds cool, for $199.99, you get the Flip, a case AND a tri-pod, what a deal! Hm, should I be spending this kinda cash after a trip to Italy? nah, next time...

[ kept walking down other aisles...then suddenly stopped...]

[Augie] Ohhhh boy (staring at this new espresso machine)... an espresso right now sounds soooooo good... I think I got addicted when I was in Italy. Hm...for $99.99, I think I can do that! but...what if this is just a fun thing...nah, it should be ok. I can make espresso for May everyday... but... do I really want to spend it? ... why not?! we get to enjoy it together ... watch!, this is going to be a dust collector after a while... but it is so cool though...

Long story short, I walked out Costco $99.99 less in my pocket. See what a trip to Italy did to me?! I know I know, I am a sucka.

good choice! we did a side by side comp on the flip HD and the normal flip and literally, there was no difference. if anything, the normal one looked better.

At least Costco has a GREAT return policy!! If you get sick of expresso after a while, you can return the darn thing! LOL
