Defining cheap

Last night a guy orders a drink,
“I’ll take a Rob Roy.”
“What Scotch would you like?”
“Hmmm.” He eyes the Scotches. “Laphroaig, I’ll be cheap.”
Laphroaig costs $14 and a Rob Roy with Laphroaig costs $17. I tell the guy,
“It’s not cheap.”
“Well it’s cheaper than Lagavulin.”
“True.” Lagavulin is a $22 Rob Roy, which is also cheaper than a Balvenie-21-year Rob Roy which is over $30.
When a $17 drink is cheap I’ll know I’m doing very well for myself, or I’m traveling around Scandinavia again.
