A bit of humor from Rachael

I couldn't decide whether to go to Salt Lake City or Denver for vacation, so I called the airlines to get prices.
"Airfare to Denver is $300," said a cheery salesperson.
"And what about Salt Lake City?"
"We have a really great rate to Salt Lake. It's $99.00, but there is a stopover."
"In Denver."
