It’s not a big deal, but this happy notice from Netflix sort of cracked me up.
They’re “updating” our subscription price!
Finally! I had grown so sick of having to pay them every month in drachmas and Deutschmarks. We’ve all known the frustration of searching under seat cushions in the hope of finding doubloons, or at least pieces of eight, with which to finance our streaming. First, they were hard to find, and second, even having to look for them made me feel so passé, so… anachronistic.
Finally, modern prices, which apparently I can pay with modern money! I feel so up-to-date, so hip, so with it!
And only $13.99! Think of it! That would only have been $1.47 in the month when I was born. Sure, it’s a higher number now, but that’s because it’s updated! Take comfort from that…
