The power of “logic”

We were driving to a birthday party. Mrs. Muttrox was in rare form.

Me: Those are some nice houses. A good sized yard for this area.
Her: Sure, but they’re over a million dollars.
Me: Really?
Her: Sure, this neighborhood is pricey.
Me: I wonder why, it doesn’t seem that great… a million dollars?
Her: Well, the ones coming up are around $900,000, so it makes sense.
Me: I guess.

(30 seconds later, we pass the next development.)
Me: I don’t see the price on the sign. How do you know those are $900,000.
Her: I don’t know, but I’m assuming they’re that much.
(pause)
Me: Wait a minute!
