The Devil Contacts Mark Through a Local CVS Pharmacy + The Best Shakespearean Revenge Ever!
Today, The Morning Waking Crew went all Stevie Wonder! We decided to ask about weird superstitions (Stevie Wonder = Superstitious, get it!) and some of what we heard made us scratch our heads. This all came about the other day when Mark went to the store and his receipt totaled $6.66.
Here is proof the Devil made contact with Mark...
Comment of the Day
My favorite superstition comment was on Facebook this morning. Christine says she refused to eat the purple Flintstones vitamins because she thinks they're poisonous! I couldn't stop laughing thinking about all the poor purple vitamins left in the bottle.
Did you know for over twenty years there wasn't a 'Betty Rubble' shaped vitamin? The manufacturer finally 'caved' and replaced the Flintstone's car with Barney's wife.
Check out what I found in the archives! You'll notice at the :06 mark we don't see Betty.

"Mark, my wife had her credit card stolen."
"Oh goodness what did you do?"
"Nothing. The thief isn't spending nearly as much as she did!"
Meteorologist Rob Carolan says: Sunshine to start the day, but then turning partly cloudy with a high of 42...35 in the North Country. Overnight, southern New Hampshire could see up to two inches of snow, while the North Country could possibly get 3-5 inches of snow by daybreak. Thursday morning's commute might be a little dicey, so be careful.
Coming Up Tomorrow...
Since tomorrow is the official start of Spring, we thought we'd talk about weird things you've found while Spring cleaning. I remember one year, as I was getting my spring/summer shoes in order, I found a fifty dollar gift card inside one of the shoe boxes, that I totally forgot about. It was a very happy day!
