Goddamn claw machine!
I went grocery shopping today. There's nothing wrong with that. It's a necessity, I have to buy food. It's not my fault the claw game is in the same building. Practically blocking my way! Okay, I have to go a little out of my way, but not much. It's just one level down...I can almost hear the little carnival music playing. So I take a stroll by, just to look of course. And there's this Winnie the Pooh, just sitting on top, looking through his glass prison at me, pleading with his beady, black, plastic eyes for me to rescue him. And he's a Chinese Pooh! Wearing some cute little outfit and reading a cloth book with Chinese characters on it. How adorable! I should really get him. I mean, it's something cultural, right? Anyway, to make a long story slightly less long, I tried 5 times and still came away empty-handed. I grabbed him every single time, but he never made it to the drop! STUPID PIECE OF JUNK MACHINE CHEATING ME OUT OF MY TOY!!!!!
It's not over between me and Mr. Claw (ooh, like Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget, I like that...or maybe Mr. Pinchy, as an homage to Homer Simson's lobster?) I'm on a mission now!
