I needed a few things at Kroger anyway, so off we went. She selected her box of strawberry cake mix and then went to the fancy tubes of icing. I forgot the exact price now (might have blocked it out because it was so shocking), but it was something like $3 or $4 a tube. I told Sarah we could make our own frosting that would taste better for way cheaper. She said, "But we can't make it pretty hot pink and purple." I said we could get close enough. Then she spotted the neon food coloring and proposed a compromise. This had the hot pink and purple colors she wanted, along with a couple other cool colors. There was no price on it or anywhere near it.
We went to check out, and that little box of food coloring rang up $3.19! I balked. Sarah convinced me that it was still cheaper than the tubes of fancy icing, and we could use it for months and maybe years. I caved.
