A Conversation between Coach and I:
11:35am. This morning.
Me: Soooo... what are the odds we have an extra three hundred bucks laying around and we can do a little shoppin at ** The Pier One, this evening?
Coach: Slim to none.
Me: Ok... give me a range.
Coach: Odds are at best, 70 to 1.
2:30pm. Coach calls me from work.
Coach: ... Pamida has a 40 inch yada yada, LC blah blah high def yada... for $299. That's a good deal.
Me: Seriously!? You JUST told me we had no money.
Coach: Uhhhh... I don't remember the conversation going exactly like that. We'd better jump on this. It's like we are losing money by not buying it.
Me: How about... you wait 4 weeks so me and the kids can buy one for your birthday? I'm sure you can survive til then.
Coach: I'm not sure I can.
I enjoy randomly putting 'The' in front of various businesses, in response to this entire town putting 'The' in front of their Dairy Queen... as if they acquired THE only Dairy Queen location on earth.
