WHAT A DAY!
I picked up my copy of the Our Money Matters Buy Local Savings Book at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts. I’m at #9, on the first page of perforated coupons right below Harlequin Productions and right before KAOS.
I got a lot of comments on my discount of 3.14159265% OFF Any Premium or Deluxe visit. Marie Poland, the director of the Buy Local Campaign, had to do a double take. She thought it might have been a typo or computer error until she cracked the code: it’s Pi, of course. I don’t even want to do the math on that discount!

I tried out a new look with the green wig and curlicue hat, built a Rudolph puppet from a hobby horse whose stick had broken, and put fresh batteries in him so he’d make galloping and whinnying noises. I also decided to bring the clipboard like it had THE LIST (the naughty and nice one). It also held extra cards and coupons.
Then I had my pic taken with Santa just before the parade started.
And hitched a ride with him! In the Electric Trolley.
As we approached the TCTV cameras the announcer saw us coming and said, “It’s Santa! and… is that Mrs. Claus?!”
So I jumped out and handed him my card, which he read off!
“Jusby the Clown and Comedy Consultant 888-2729! Getting his plug in!”
