Wanna know what $100 at Costco gets you? I'll give you a hint: Not much for me, but a whole lotta insight for my 7 year old.
Yum Yum (lunch for two days)
Equalled $100 and a funny discussion with my daughter that placed me on her historical timeline of the "old days."
She looked at the "Steel Magnolias" movie and asked the usual questions like what it was about, when was it made, and then excitedly exclaimed "Oh that's Dolly "Partner." She was on Hannah Montana!!" She continued with " Mom do you think they have games on this DVD like they do on my DVD's?" I told her, "I don't think so." She then said, "Mom, did you play the games on your DVD's when you were little." To which I replied, while trying not to bust out laughing amidst chewing my Kashi and strawberries, "Uh sweetie, we didn't have DVD's or tapes when I was little." (and we only had three channnels on the TV that we had to get up off the couch to change, and we used a phone that had a rotary dial with a curly cord attached to the receiver so it couldn't fall between the couch cushions otherwise known as the phone abyss, and I used a typewriter and carbon paper because PC's weren't invented, and I drank Tab instead of Diet Coke. Hard times, I know.)
Then she said, with a straight face :
"Oh yeah, that's right, you were around when Elvis was alive."
So there you have it folks. That is how a trip to Costco resulted in placing me in the timeline of history through the eyes of my 7 year old. And just so you know, I was 13 when Elvis died.
