The Claw

A few weeks ago my sister sent me this...

If you don't know why, check THIS out.  It made me laugh out loud when I saw it.  When I was a kid, I was hopelessly addicted to these little babies.  I would spend whatever money I had sure that I was going to win the prize.  It never-- I mean NEVER, happened.  So it has become the family joke.  When my sister saw this little version she bought it just for me.

It's been a few years (OK, a lot of years) since my claw days so I popped it out of the box and filled it up with treats.  I figured it couldn't be that hard-- right?

Well, it was.

That hurt my pride.  a lot.

I tried again and again and.... nothin'.

When the kids got home from school they wanted to try it out for themselves.  I warned them that it was really hard and not to get too discouraged.  Then I walked away and left them to figure my lesson out the hard way.

They never learned that lesson.

They just kept winning.

That hasn't been so good for my dwindling pride.

Stupid Claw.

Funny. Try it again when no one is around maybe it just had to be warmed up.

I hopped over here from Cheri's blog and have read several of your posts - they had me laughing so thanks for making my day! My kids have been begging me to let them use those dumb machines (there's one at our local grocery store).... I keep telling them NO ONE ever wins! I live in Michigan and saw you are in Wisconsin - my husband just got offered a job in Madison so we are considering moving there - do you like it?? I LOVED the cat lady post. Hahaha!!!
