In just about every state some new law starts today. In Utah you can no longer have daily drink specials - which basically means no more happy hour....which makes me wonder two things... Does it really effect many people in Utah since most people there are Mormons who don't drink alcohol? And secondly, I wonder it this will effect Sonic and their daily half-price drink specials??? Will half-price strawberry slushies be banned??? (Are there any Sonics in Utah??? If not, you Utah-ians are missing out!)
Also, in California and Oregon you can no longer sell shark fins. No real loss there....and yes, I have actually eaten shark fin soup (it was in Hong Kong about about 15 years ago - judge me not).
So, in keeping with this tradition, we are enacting new laws in our household. Drew is EXTREMELY tried of turning off lights...lights in a room where no soul is in. So. For every light left on that he or I have to turn off or tell a child to turn it off, we will be charging fifty cents to the offending party.
Had this law been enforced yesterday, we would already be $1.50 richer.
I see a new source of Starbucks money for me.
