Free food update

So we printed off the cow heads yesterday from Chick-fil-A, and took Miriam's cow puppet. Once we got there, I tied the head onto Miriam, who didn't want it and wriggled out of it. So I went to Brent. He didn't want it either, but he was smart enough to sit still. Once Miriam saw mom and dad were getting cow heads too, she was all about it. It really was cute. She put on her puppet hand and mooed for the register worker. There weren't any other people dressed like cows, so I felt kind of silly, and Brent even said "gosh maybe we should just pay the $2 for a sandwich." But then we heard people in line saying "maybe we should go home and get some black and white and then come back" so I felt better. I ordered free sandwiches for Brent, Miriam, and I. Then we ordered some potato waffle fries. Then another worker came over and said, pointing to the puppet, "they have props... give them a free kids meal!" So on top of Miriam's chicken sandwich, she got a free kids meal too. The three sandwiches, two waters, apple juice, chicken nuggets, large fries and small fries came to a total of $1.86. Plus they had a great kids play area that Miriam loved. And on the way home, I got a text from my friend Lyndzi that said that 7-11 was giving away free slurpees because it was July 11th (7-11). So we had slurpees on top of that. It turned out to be a very successful venture. I LOVE LOVE LOVE free food!

I've proudly proclaimed that I never raised a dummy. Do I need to rethink or do I reaffirm?????hmmmmm

No pictures from this one. The entire "cow dressed" episode was only about two minutes. But oh what a two minutes it was!

All that food for 1.86?!? It's nothing but proof that you didn't raise no dummies!
