on tuesday, when we went out with yoshi's parents, we actually had several lucky experiences. the first was at the beach, where yoshi found a thousand yen in the sand. that was cool. the next was finding a car seat on sale for the next baby. it was a good price. and because yoshi was with me, i found out about a discount card for the baby section in jusco, so we saved another 2000 yen off the car seat. then, since it was tuesday, we turned in our 'pink' receipts (with the food yoshi bought and the car seat) and got 13 chances to turn the wheel (a japanese thing where you turn a wheel and release a colored marble.) maybe the 13 limited our luck a bit, but i still got one blue marble and received a 500 yen coupon for aeon! lucky us!
