The topic: Irritants


We’re watching tv in the office.  Brian’s surfing, I’m kinda doing not much.  How many times in ten minutes can you check your email?  There’s absolutely nothing I want to buy, so there’s nothing for me to look at.  Not even window shopping. Overall, the net is pretty quiet tonight.

So, we’re watching Court TV (we changed from Katrina news earlier today, it gets to be too much; and you find that after a couple of hours, the segments are repeats from earlier), Forensic Files. 

And an ad comes on.  I didn’t hear what it was for, but the announcer says “you could win ten thousand big ones!”  I look up (not that I’m going to win ‘ten thousand big ones’, but it caught my attention.  And they had a graphic up:  $10,000.00).

Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t consider a dollar a “big one”.  I don’t consider a ten dollar bill a “big one”.  Maybe a hundred dollar bill might be a “big one”.  Most definitely a thousand dollar bill would be a “big one”.

But a one dollar bill, is NOT a “big one”.
