MADISON WI, December 3, 2016 - The planned outing by Cactus Joe, Deborah, Sherry, and Tyler to see a slew of punk rock bands at the Crystal Corner was unexpectedly sidetracked by financial instability earlier this evening.
"Sherry told me it was a $7 cover," Cactus Joe said. "I guess I sort of knew that, but it seemed less important earlier in the week when my wallet was fatter."
The group of friends had just attended a social dinner at the El Dorado Grill with a large gathering of bike enthusiasts.
"The place was a little overpriced," Deborah said. "So I think the pricetag made us all feel a bit more frugal when we discussed our options at the coffee shoppe before the punk rock show. I didn't even know there was a cover."
The group instead had an enjoyable and lively discourse at the Chocolaterian coffee shoppe and bakery.
"The dark chocolate flourless nut cookies were amazing," Deborah said. "I could have eaten everything in the place, but luckily more level heads prevailed."
Deborah ended her period of Atkins dieting today and was thus free to do whatever the hell she wanted.
"It's her life," said Cactus Joe, who sources say did take a single but substantial bite of the aforementioned confection. "She can do whatever she wants."
