So we're in the 2 shekel store (read: "dollar store" is too highbrow for this merchandise), and I see a set of velcroable fruit! I always thought this was a very fun toy. So what I thought it would be like was this, a smaller set but hey, this was the 2 shekel store (I guessed it wasn't 2 shekel, but not much more). I asked Yoav to buy it.
It was 18 shekel. Okay, fine.
I open it up tonight after the exhausted baby fell asleep (too much galivanting over J-town), and so it's cheapy plastic, fine. So the fake knife is a little sharp - I dull it, fine. So one of the pieces is a little grungy - so I wash them all, fine.
On my way to throw out the box, I turn it over and read the warning I missed in the store. It's so delightful, I will now reproduce it for you here.
You gotta admire their correct usage of apostraphes. So I guess I'll put the toys away so my daughter won't suckle on them (hmm, alternative to formula?). Oh well.
I may have to go buy that on eBay.... but it doesn't say anything about suckling...
This picture of the girl is from a couple weeks ago when I was playing with the camera. Tocher noir!
The inlaws treated us to a cleaning lady today (6 hours of her!) and as a result I have to wash my hands before I touch the floor, lest I get it dirty. No no, that's not true (um, I think), but the house is gleaming (I can tell the difference! Really I can!) and we're very grateful. Then we all went out shopping (okay, not all of us - the cleaning lady didn't come) and besides the aforementioned 2 shekel store debacle, I got a nice new sweater (hurray!) which had the courtesy to be on sale 50% off, so I think it was something like $15.00. Which reminds me of course of my new shetyle. See, the play costume people bought a bunch of sheytles for the show, some new (including my hideous one), some old. One of the old ones they rejected. I said, hey, I would wear that! So they let me have it for free, but I felt bad and paid them what they paid for it... 10 shekel. It's being washed now - we'll see how it looks!
