And That's a Winner

On my way back from Lowe's where I exchanged the really badly bent shelf ("We don't normally exchange one shelf. We exchange the whole unit." "Yes, but the box is in shreds and the rest of the unit is assembled." "Oh. OK."), I stopped by our local grocery store to pick up some bread for dinner. They've just finished remodeling the store and are having their "Grand Reopening" this weekend. One of the things they do is to bring in a giant slot machine that you can spin and attempt to win prizes. Ok, why not?

I pulled the handle and the machine came up with three Miller Lite logos in a row. Oh, dear. I've won bad beer.

Well, no, actually I won the opportunity to pick one of the small home appliances on the shelf in the booth. That's much better. After a quick call home to consult, I brought daisy_knotwise a new electric tea kettle.
