Luxury Box

Ed opened the glitzy package and rolled out the multicolored brochure. Luxury Box Seats Now Available said the headline from the local college athletic department.

Ed read on, learning that a $25,000 donation qualifies him to purchase two football seats in the luxury box for only $1,200 per seat for the six home games this season. That’s assuming, of course, that he becomes a premium member of the football booster club at the $2,000 annual giving level.

Ed stared at the materials, daydreaming about the VIP treatment he would receive.

“Hey Edna.”

Forget it,” she screamed from two rooms away.
