Of course I went ahead with it, we made a family night out of it and everyone got to sign it with a big official pen and... well, thus far it hasn't made a lick of difference in the household... but hopefully soon I can stop pointing out the places where they've broken their agreements and start emphasizing how their privileges are growing!
I have begun to wonder - will we ever have any fresh new ideas? Packaged fry sauce (which Q was really excited about 10 years ago) has now been done, Honey-butter even comes pre-mixed (even though it could really use a better recipe)...
Every once in awhile I will have a dream about some new idea and wake up thinking "wow, THIS is how I can make my million!" Of course, usually by the time the sun comes up I realize that it's a little silly... I mean really - Roman Numeral Candles may help disguise the age a little, but do I really want XXXVI on my cake... and the whole "roman candles" similarity is a little scary - I'd be a little afraid the cake would explode... yeah, THAT was my last brilliant dream-scheme... I'd better start eating more healthful dinners I think!
Oh, and in case there is a sudden "explosion" of roman numeral candles on the market next month - remember you heard it here first... and a finder's fee wouldn't be so bad either :)
