“You only get an inch extra on either side of the plow. That’s $100 an inch. How can that be worth it?” said Joel.

“Okay, Mary. You’re apparently the expert when it comes to this subject. So what do you say?” asked Joel.

“Believe me, you do get better results with an extra 2 inches,” answered Mary, with a seductive wink.
