She Who Is Perfect In All Ways is a gardener and so we get a lot of gardening supply and plant catalogs. I glanced at one this morning and my eye was caught by the bright red label claiming “LIMITED SUPPLY!” for some sort of flower seed. Well, I thought, aren’t they all limited supply? It’s not like in January, stocks running low, the CEO can call up the factory foreman and say “Yeah, Joe, put on three shifts and crank out extra product”. Nice try, though.
