Anyways, I was relieved after knowing she's not into it, and she'd rather have one of those instant Polaroid cams. I said "Sure, I'll buy you one, heck since those things are dirt cheap in Ebay, I'll even make it two".
And so I won in three auctions-- ranging from 99c to $12.
After a few days, the mailman came knockin' in bearing gifts. One of the cameras came with a cartridge and I tried it right away. Then I later found out that these are cheap for a reason. The cost of the film would make my wallet jump out of my pocket and cry in a corner.
I guess it's not always true when they say it's old and gone cheaper.
