Kira asked me last night, "Mom, can I use your computer to look at Amazon?" because she got some Amazon gift cards for Christmas and her birthday. I said, "Sure," and off she went. Today she told me that she only needs 20 more dollars to get what she really REALLY wants. She said this is something she has wanted for years. (She's ten.) What is it, you ask? Let me show you:
A wolf mascot costume. I was stunned. How does she even think of this stuff? Who would think of buying a mascot costume on Amazon? I asked her where she would ever wear something like this and she looked at me like I'm an idiot and said, "EVERYWHERE!" So now she is saving her money so she can get this thing. I don't know how successful she'll be, she spent all her cash on superballs at the arena today. On that note, guess what you can buy at the concession stand at the Cloquet arena? Shrimp cocktails. And they're only three dollars. Fortunately they weren't open today when I was there or else I would probably be puking my guts out right now.
