Before I Forget

UPDATED UPDATE to 10/27 "Shiver Me Timbers!" post:

We went to Abby's final Pirate of Penzance performance on Sunday, which for Sam, was all about the raffle tickets. I spent a good part of the morning explaining to him that despite our big cash win at Friday's show, most of the time when people buy in to a raffle, they win nothing.

I was very concerned that he would buy, not win, have a meltdown.

Public tantrums are not good.

However, he was determined, and he needed the little life-lesson in order to let the issue go, so I held my breath and watched him hand over his allowance.

He won again. A gift certificate for a half-hour massage this time, which he will be giving to his mother as a Christmas present.

I gotta get this kid some lottery tickets.

He was in it for the cash prize. He wasn't at all happy about winning the massage.

Now if it had been an airplane or a Captain Underpants collection or a model train... then he'd a been a happy man.

But, sg, I'll give you the massage if you come and claim it! :)
