I normally wouldn’t post something like this, but it’s just too funny not to share! My Mom sent this to me, probably a couple of years ago! She knew how much I enjoyed the claw game. I even would have dreams about winning all the toys. I spent every indoor soccer game, of my brothers, at the mercy of this machine. I would constantly be running back and forth from the arcade to the bleachers where my mom was, begging for another quarter. When she finally turned me down, I would search under the bleachers for the quarter that fell from someones unlucky pocket or purse!
I still remember the time when a couple of the kids and I got so close to getting a stuffed animal, the loop on the top of it’s head was hanging over the side where it would drop. I got real inventive all of the sudden! I ran to the concession stand and asked for a bunch of straws and smiled as the attendant eyed my rye smile with caution. He gave them to me any way, and I got to work. I made a pole out of flexible straws and piped it through the door of the machine and viola! The bear was mine!
So, I say Bravo to this little girl (and the one I saw on the news this morning that did the same thing) for livin’ the dream!
