CRAZY (MAKING) 8's
I'm seeing 8's in my sleep. Spent the weekend looking for them.
Started on Friday when The Wonder That is Jenn took Rojo to Target during summer school time, to play a game with prices, pretend shopping and comparative pricing - all good life skills he needs to work on. Didn't expect it to ignite a new obsession, but it did.
Saturday morning found Rojo up and at 'em. "Mom? Can we go to Target and pretend shop? You will tell me to find something and I will just boom, run and find it. You will say, 'Rojo, tell me how much Crest toothpaste is,' and I will just boom, run and find it."
Sounded innocent (and cheap) enough, so I agreed.
Don't know why or when the game morphed from boom, running and finding stuff, to boom, finding prices that ended with the number 8.
Go ahead, you try it, get to your nearest Target and tell me how many you find.
Never mind, I'll spare you. Three. There are three prices that end with 8 at Target, and those are the red tagged clearance items, so keep your eyes peeled for those - and here's a hint, those are usually found on "enders."
If you're looking for 9's? Veritable bonanza. 8's? Needle. In. A. Haystack.
Love The Wonder that is Jenn.
