Chuck It

The online store Delias, pinnacle of chic in my high school days, is having a contest in which the prize is "a year's worth of Converse Chucks," i.e. 12 pairs of the shoe.

This is just wrong. A year's worth of Chucks is not 12 pairs. It is one pair, that you bought four years ago, and will wear for the next two years after this one. A year's worth of Chucks is one-seventh of a pair of Chucks. Duh.
