…i used to get a postcard in the mail every october [my birth month] for a free happy meal.
in and of itself, this was a welcome piece of mail – how often does a little kid get something with his name on it in the mail, anyway?
only problem was – the “toy” that came with the happy meal was the same EVERY OCTOBER which really wasn’t all that exciting.
mcdonald’s halloween pails.
i can handle one year of getting a plastic pail, but after many years of getting the SAME THING every time, what’s a kid to do? i only had so many legos i needed to sort in to different containers. needless to say, i was bitter for many years. [well, as “bitter” as a kid can be getting a free hamburger].
now that i’ve got that off my chest… ;)
