Eli 5.4 Notes

Two notes on Monday lunch with Eli 5.4. First, we went back to Pottery Barn Kids last Monday and it’s not a trebuchet—it’s a catapult.

And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re probably better off.

Second, we went to Dave & Buster’s two weeks ago and spent a little time playing the the giant wheel that spins around (think Wheel of Fortune) and pays a 500 ticket jackpot if you stop the wheel at just the right time. While we were there, we saw a guy get the 500 ticket jackpot THREE TIMES in five minutes. We were both in the gift shop at the same time, so we mentioned our awe, and he said “there’s a secret.” Then he told us that there’s a light “click” when the wheel is in place for the jackpot. So if you stop the wheel right when you hear that click, it’s much more reliable than watching the wheel spin. Allegedly.
