RAY: A girl and her mother are out shopping. They overhear a conversation between a customer and a salesperson in the next aisle.
The customer asks, "How much does one cost?"
The salesperson answers, "One costs 99 cents."
"OK, how about 12?"
"Oh, that'll be $1.98."
"Okay, in that case, I'll take 128."
The cashier rings up the purchase, and it comes to $2.97.
Here's the question: what kind of store are they in, and what is this person buying?
RAY: They're in a hardware store or some such store.
TOM: And they live at 128 Blue View Terrace.
RAY: They're buying 128 for the cost of three things, because you're buying three things. You're buying number one, number two, and a number eight.
