Dashed Hopes

Don't worry, my dashed hopes have nothing to do with the houses that we have offers on. We still have not heard anything back. But maybe next week.

Nope, today I am talking about yogurt.

My kids love the little containers of yogurt, particularly the Twix flavors. I have noticed that under the lid I have seen (over and over again -- they really like yogurt) the words "Please Try Again."

And so I knew that they were having a contest of some sort and dreamed about the day I lifted another lid and found out that I was a winner! Woohoo! Maybe we could win $100,000 (see, that's not too greedy) and wow, things would be great.

I finally took a moment to check out the box to see how much I could win. My hopes were high until I read that each winning lid could be worth $5.

"Well, hell."

(Excuse the language, but I said it.)

"I have $5 in my wallet! I don't need Twix!"

Are economic conditions so bad that we are down to winning only $5?

Well, Hell. That made my day. And I hate the way that stuff stains the carpet.

HAHAHAHAHA! That is so funny. Give the $5 to your girls. They'll think they hit the jackpot(only mom knows better right!).
