My son likes munching on pistachios. Today, we opened a new bag of the little green nuts. He happened to notice a little Angry Bird sticker on it.
"Mama, what's this?"
"I don't know," I said. "Why don't you take it off and find out ?"
"You do it," he said.
Yeah, of course. That's the way it always goes. So, I pulled off the sticker. "It says here in fine print, 'The Hunt for the Golden Pistachio.'"
My son got all excited. "Does that mean there's a golden pistachio in the bag?"
"No. It means you get a code to play some kind of video game involving Angry Birds and a Golden Pistachio."
Apparently that went in one ear and out the other. He grabbed the bag of pistachios and started munching. After about fifteen minutes, he ran over to me all excited. "I found the golden pistachio!"
I looked at him kind of funny. "Oh yeah? Let me see."
He showed me a nut with definitive yellow streaks on it. "I'm going to keep it, because it's worth a million bucks."
So now he a a million dollar golden pistachio sitting on his book shelf. Anybody want to buy it?
