Passage of the day

From Jaguars Ripped my Flesh by Tim Cahill:

Floyd was flying supplies at the time, and one of the storekeepers asked him to bring in one hundred shots of penicillin. The shots were sold for about five dollars apiece. Another storekeeper, who knew a good thing when he saw it, asked Floyd to fly in five hundred shots and “one of those things doctors have to put in their ears.”

“You mean a stethoscope?”

“Yeah, that’s it, a stethoscope.”

With the stethoscope, Floyd explained, the man was able to sell his shots for ten dollars apiece. He looked more professional.
