When I was younger, my cousin Melissa and I were playing in her mother's bedroom. Melissa's younger brother, Michael, who was about 7 or 8 at the time, joined us. We were probably being nosy and looking through her mother's dresser when Michael pulled out a very slinky black nightie. Holding it away from his body like it might have been a snake, his face a mixture of disbelief and incomprehension, he said "I ain't BELIEVIN' this!"
That phrase has become a staple in our house. This weekend I have said that phrase numerous times. Here's why.
Back in the day when Mr. Daddy was a Starbucks manager, if you passed your tests or met certain goals you were rewarded. With lapel pins. I know. Great, right? Woo hoo and all that.
It turns out that those little pins are quite collectible. Mr. Daddy found his while doing some packing for our move, checked eBay and saw that some were selling for about $20 so we said "SWEET! Free money for some silly pins." And he listed them, two of them together. This is the first set:
The price quickly went above $2o, so he listed the second set. Here they are:
The first auction ended yesterday. Guess how much they sold for? Go on, GUESS!
One hundred and fifty two dollars!!! Yes, you read that correctly! $152.00!! For some Starbucks pins!!
The second auction ended about 2 hours ago. Guess how much the second set sold for?
$152.00!!! I ain't BELIEVIN' this!
But guess what the best part is? He's still has two more....
We're in the money! We're in the money!!
