Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Magic Shake-Ball,

The hair stylist just sold me some mousse product for $33. Am I a total idiot?

Magic Shake-Ball's Answer:

"Nor heaven nor earth have been at peace to-night" (Julius Caesar 2.2.1)

Um, I didn't mean to sound hysterical. Did I sound hysterical? Anyway, this seems like an overreaction, Shake-Ball. It's not like it's World War III or anything; I'm just saying that it seems sort of stupid to spend this much money on hair stuff.

Magic Shake-Ball's Answer:

"Keep your hundred pounds to yourself: he shall need none, so long as I live"
(The Taming of the Shrew 5.1.20-1)

First of all, I said $33, which is roughly twenty pounds--not a hundred. Again you exaggerate. Are you saying that I shouldn't give any more money to the stylist? I think that's what you're saying, yes.
