So The Reader has been begging, and I do mean begging, to play the "claw game" whenever he sees one. And I've been lecturing about how it's such a waste of money, you never win anything, you can buy the silly stuffed whatever for much less money than it would take to win it.
Tonight we were out and I happened to have some loose change so I thought once and for all I would give in and show him how hard it is to win those games. I gave each of the older two boys fifty cents and turned my back to the game. But before I turned my back I noticed the machine's claw had two handicapped pincers, leaving only one working pincer, nice.
Guess what? They BOTH WON something! Oh my, are you even for real? It was ridiculous. I have a very strong dislike for stuffed animals so I told them they were going to have to donate them. To this The Thinker quipped "but these are very rare, it's very difficult to win this game and we can't give them away". Right, so rare and difficult you did it on your first try with a dysfunctional claw.
