Hey, I said bunco, stop rolling the dice!
Bunco. What an odd name. I wonder where it comes from, but I’m too lazy to Google it right now… It was probably made up by some bored women who wanted an excuse to leave their house and hang out for a few hours for minimal money (almost less than a tank of gas nowadays!)
However, I thoroughly enjoy playing. It’s a laugh and a half, you never know how you are truly doing until the end (unless you hid the travelling dice!) and there are always great treats. I won a tape measure today!!! I am so excited. Seriously I am. I did not tell Nick, and I refuse to. I don’t want it to get lost in his tool box.
Speaking of gas….anyone seen that forward about how much it would cost if your car ran on X? X being vanilla extract, oil, and other random things. Well, I remember milk being on there. I’d like to point out that I bought milk for cheaper than gas today. Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently, I would be better off if my car ran on gas.
Which brings me to an odd coincidence. We were discussing grocery bills today while waiting for everyone to arrive. I was slightly surprised at how much groceries cost everyone! I was sad to see my bill rise from about $175 to about $220 a month all by moving east. Granted, I have not been as researchy (yes, that’s a real word) in my grocery ads, and have been able to use some of my food storage (store what you will eat!). So, I think I will start that game again. I’ll have to check out the Sunday paper and see which one has the best coupons. I’m going to make it a goal to get my groceries back down. And no cheating by eating out!
The coincidence part is that “Unwrapped” on the Food Network is all about food and especially groceries. It features one of those ladies who has managed to make her coupon clipping come close to paying her to shop. I don’t think I can quite meet that level.
Man, this is a really random train of thought. I’ll have to save my other two randomness thoughts for another day. (Music and Houses if you were wondering).
