A Worthy Surprise

I just learned my lesson. Thing 1 had a swim-a-thon where the kids get pledges and then swim as many laps as they can. Swimming isn’t really his favorite sport, so we were pleased when he wanted to participate.

The money goes children with leukemia. So I told Thing 1 I would give him $3 per lap. I figured he would swim ten, fifteen tops. I almost offered $5 a lap since it was a good cause.

Well, he came home from the swim-a-thon tonight and announced he did forty-four laps! He wanted to keep going but the time ran out.

Thing 1 was quick to inform me it’s $132. At least it goes to a worthy cause. And it’s a good thing I didn’t pledge $5 a lap.

  4. Afirmação do KAOS:"A promoção, decidida de forma unilateral pelo Pingo Doce, será paga pelos fornecedores".Ó homem, você acredita mesmo que se isso não constar no contrato de fornecimento, o Pingo Doce pode exigir esse pagamento aos fornecedores?
