So we are walking tonight at the park with Koda and this young man approaches us (probably about 13 years old) with his dad with him and asks us if we want to buy a candy bar from See's. I am never anyone to turn down the opportunity to eat chocolate, so I ask hubby if he has any money (I never carry any money, if I'm walking Koda alone, I do have my bank card with my wallet in the car). Thankfully hubby always carries money (not much, but he does carry some bills).
Young man tells us he has dark chocolate with almonds and milk chocolate. Milk chocolate always will be my favorite. He says the bars are $2.00 each. Hubby has a $5.00 bill, so we buy two, and we get a $1.00 change.
Times sure have changed. These bars aren't that big.
About 5 inches each. For $2.00. I know its for fundraising, but I remember getting a much bigger bar years ago for 50 cents. Times sure have changed!
Snippets what I've been up to lately:
Had sushi for the first time last Friday; went out to celebrate son's girlfriend's birthday. LOVED it. How could I go 56 years without trying it? It won't be 56 years before I try it again.
Son, girlfriend, and I got sick last week. Weird sickness. Not a cold, more like a flu with the aches and pains, little fever, incessant cough. We think it might have been pertussis since its going around and girlfriend has a young child in the school system. Was pretty under the weather for a few days. So under the weather one night I didn't even check my email before I went to bed. I'm pretty routine about doing that and making sure all blogs are read for the day. Didn't happen that day but caught up the next day.
Hot muggy weather. Enough said.
Chargers, true to form, lost their first game of the season after an impressive lead. Oh well, there's always next year.
And sometimes, you just have to let sleeping dogs lie.
