On Sunday, Lloyd and I walked around ShopKo after he was done with choir. I told him that we were just going to check the clearance areas, but I forgot what that does to his system. He was pretty gung-ho to go looking. We scanned some kitchen stuff, some electronic stuff, but when we got to the Christmas section, he was commenting on how cheap the candy was.
“How much is this stuff regularly?” he asked.
“It’s all 90% off,” I replied.
His pupils dilated and I could hear his pulse quicken. We managed to leave the aisle with only $12 worth of giant candy canes as treats for his math kids.
Elsewhere in the clearance areas, we found something for me! Have you seen these? They are reusable hand warmers.
The pouch is filled with a liquid and a little disk. You ‘snap’ the disk inside, and that starts a chain reaction.
…. and spreads….
…. and spreads!
As it does so, it releases heat. You have a nice little warm thing to hold onto for several minutes. Before you use it again, you just boil it up and it resets the liquid. Crazy, huh?
