As Nathan was wide awake and seemed "in it" for the long haul tonight, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to type all this up and would've, instead, had to give you a Snippet Thursday: The Reckoning.
Alas, daddy won! Nathan is asleep and I'm finally eating dinner at 9:15 p.m.
I now present you with Snippet Wednesday!
A few weeks ago, Katie and I received some coupons in the mail from Chipotle. The other day, I decided to try and read the fine print to discover when they expire. I, instead, got a little bit of a laugh...
Offer valid only at participating locations, which in this case means all locations. Not to be combined with other offers or somehow cleverly duplicated. Limit one card per visit. Please present this card to the cashier, but don't be surprised when they keep it. Cash value 1/100th of one cent, which is pretty much nothing. This is the fine print, why are you still reading this? Really, this is getting silly, go eat.
I love clever marketing.
I finally got around, within the last couple of weeks, to returning duplicate gifts I received for Christmas (yeah, yeah, so I'm a bit late to the game). I wound up with in-store credit at a couple different stores that, at one point in time or another, I frequented and purchased from regularly. This time, though? I couldn't figure out a damn thing to buy with my credit. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Zero. What is wrong with me?
Nathan's daycare provider lives near an outdoor mall. As I was picking up Nathan up today and loading him in the car, I smelled something. I sniffed several more times unable to quite pin down what that doughy buttery goodness was wafting about in the air. Then it hit me... Auntie Ann's Pretzels. Oh you vicious little minx! How dare you???
On the daycare/babysitting front, I am so glad I do not (yet) have daycare that occurs in our own home and this just adds to that appreciation. Well, except for Katie's mom and if I find any sort of audio or video recording devices hidden in our home, Marj, so help me...
