It’s Only Money

Imagine that you had just over $3000 and you absolutely had to spend it in one night. You could do one of the following:

  • Order 950 chili cheese dogs from Pinks Hot Dogs
  • Play over 6100 games of Guns and Roses pinball at Shatto Lanes
  • Rent a luxury suite at the Hotel Bel Air and have money left over for hot dogs and pinball

I don’t know about you but I haven’t got that kind of cash and if I did I don’t think I could in good conscience spend it on a night’s worth of chili dogs, pinball or luxury accommodations. So you can imagine my surprise when I opened my mail to find out that I had spent that kind of money and I did it for five nights in a row…at Cedars Sinai hospital.

Also, that price is just for the room; there’s a lot more, but the other costs don’t bother me as much as the room. I realize that surgery and drugs aren’t cheap and the cost beats dying but the room rate seems a little steep doesn’t it? For $3000 dollars a night I feel like I should get a little more than a semi private room with a single bed and a gown that doesn’t cover enough.
