Only The Half Of It!

On occasion I have been afforded the opportunity to purchase works of art on layaway (or a similar arrangement of payments over the course of multiple months).  There was even a point in time (several years ago during one of my more prolific collecting phases) where I was making a monthly art payment at one of the local galleries (much like most people would have a car or mortgage payment).  Imagine my delight when I realize that of the original sum only $300 now remains, the other moiety having been paid in the previous month(s).

moiety

\MOI-i-tee\, noun;

1.  a half.
2.  an indefinite portion, part, or share.
3.  Anthropology . one of two units into which a tribe or community is divided on the basis of unilineal descent.
