AND WE HAVE A WINNER!
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE ANSWER ...
(and if you just got here and didn't have time to play, read on to see what you missed and see what you get to look forward to each and every Friday now on Manic Mommy!)
Introducing another new feature here on Manic Mommy ...
It's Five-Buck Friday where I'll ask a random question and the first commenter to get it correct will win a crisp (or not so crisp!) five dollar bill from me! I already tried this out on Twitter and sent the winner five bucks and it was a lot of fun so I am going to try it out here.
Here are the rules -- you can guess up to three times on the blog. After that, you can't guess any more. I think that's the only rule I have so far. If, for obvious reasons, you know the answer (like for instance, for today's question, if you were with me at lunch today!) then you can't guess!
Other than that, I'll make up rules as we go along.
So, let's play ... FIVE-BUCK FRIDAY!
I went to lunch today at Bar Louie's with six kids and one other adult. There were four kids' meals ordered, two appetizers. Two adult lunches. A shitload of pops. Some side orders of fries.
What was our total bill including the 18 percent gratuity that our server, whose name was Stephanie Rene (of course, when she said her name was Stephanie, I had to ask her middle name too!) charged us?
More clues ... when Diva grabbed the bill and announced the total, I said to her, "SHUT UP!" meaning it was higher than I expected it to be.
And I will post a photo of the receipt as proof after you enter your guesses. So, you might as well go ahead and enter in your three guesses right away! Actually, your best bet would be to enter your guess once, wait a bit and I'll come back in and maybe I'll give more clues like higher, lower, even, odd, throughout the guessing, so maybe you don't want to throw out your three guesses all at once!
Have fun! And let's play FiVe-BuCK FRiDaY!!!
AND THE WINNER IS ....
CONGRATS! TO April at OnTheVerge for guessing the right answer, and hey, isn't that an expensive lunch out for two moms and some kids?!?!? AND NO ALCOHOL!?!?
I'll be sending you your FIVE BUCKS April so be on the lookout for your crisp Manic Mommy Five Dollar BIllio! Thanks for playing!
