Okay, so that's about as dumb a subject line as I've ever conjured up…
But if you've been dancing around putting off ordering your 2008 Season Passes, yet you want to purchase them at the lowest possible rate … you've got till Sunday night to do it.
Sunday night, as in October 14, at 11:59 pm CDT.
Once the second hand clicks to Monday, the prices go up.
Bettye, whom you may have met if you've stopped by Holiday Foods here in town, already has hers.
She asked me about when they would go on sale a number of weeks ago and I promised (and actually remembered!) to have a flyer mailed to her.
The next time I stopped by for groceries, Bettye happily proclaimed she'd already received her vouchers in the mail.
We ended up laughing so hard, we sort of held up the check-out line
You see, Bettye buys season passes for her family as Christmas presents every year. She told me she'd informed her daughter, "If anything happens to me — the season pass vouchers for you and the grandkids are in the bottom drawer of my nightstand."
Her daughter, of course, was horrified. "Mom! What do you mean, if anything would happen to you?"
Bettye and I cackled like a couple of hens at the thought of being on our deathbeds and drawing our loved ones near for one final, loving conversation:
My darlings, be good to one another and know that I love you. And don't forget, your season pass vouchers are in the bottom drawer.
Me: Hello … I work at Holiday World. Whoever owns this cell phone left it behind at one of our rides. Would you know how else to contact this person so we can return the phone?
Alrighty then. Up to Lost & Found we go.
According to Eric, his staff does try to be proactive in reuniting cell phones with their owners, looking for phone numbers labeled "Home" or "Mom." A quick call is usually met with appreciation and help in creating a Peaches & Herb moment.
