Background: S collects pennies. Santa is planning to bring her a roll of them on Christmas morning, and has asked me to help out by picking them up at the bank.
Note to self: Make this errand the top priority during your very brief window of time with no older children tomorrow.
Otherwise, you will end up at the bank tomorrow afternoon with all three children. While there you will try to discretely purchase the roll of pennies. This will likely involve (1) sliding a note to a bank teller asking for a roll of pennies, (2) alerting a security guard who has been trained to look for people who slide notes to bank tellers, and (3) being labeled the most pathetic bank robber in history by an evening newscaster who highlights the fact that your demands included 100 pennies and three suckers for the kids.
Some days the “to do” list is more pressure laden and excitement filled than others…
Merry Christmas everyone!
(Update: I wrote this a week ago, but neglected to post it…I am happy to report that I accomplished the errand while the girls were at school and was not arrested. Happy holidays indeed!)
