|For the Price of:||You Could Have:|
|breast implant surgery||a year of college tuition|
|a year’s worth of Slim Fast||plane tickets to Europe|
|one month of fake tanning||a one-hour massage|
|a set of salon highlights||two weeks of groceries|
|uncomfortable shoes||gas for a 1,200 mile road trip|
|a pair of designer jeans||a lift ticket at a ski resort|
|a set of acrylic nails||a day at an amusement park|
|a breast-enhancing bra||an afternoon canoe trip|
