    The whole perishable thing is interesting. In a grocery store, perishables usually get cheaper as the product gets closer and closer to "perishing".

    But... demand for that perishable item goes down as the product gets closer to the expiration date; an airline ticket becomes more sought after as demand increases for a dwindling number of seats. Gosh this is taking me back to Economics class haha!

    Every time I hear/see perishable said or written I see a picture of rotting produce in my mind. I guess it's all those years working for Kroger in the produce department.
