Mitchell spent almost all of last Wednesday and Thursday doing indoor drumline up at the high school. Because he dedicated so much time “working” while the other kids played, we decided to treat him to Yowgli Mowgli. What we didn’t anticipate was that he would make a treat bigger than Julie’s and mine combined. His cost over $6 and brought the whole bill to over $12. For that much, we could have brought the whole family to the Tuesday dollar movie AND bought a large popcorn and still spent less. Crazy.
The downside of all this, though, is that due to an enormous financial cost, it doesn’t look like Mitchell will be able to do it. I am not sure that has sunk in with him yet.
