A Purim Word Problem

Sunday, 23 March 2008

Purim Party with ImaBima and FrumeSarah!

If Inspector Clouseau & Queen Esther paid $105.00 to the babysitter, $125.00 for an insured raffle ticket, $262.50 to the IRS, and were left with a total of $257.50, how much money did they win at the Reverse Raffle at last night’s Purim Party???

That’s right! PC and I were the 3rd top winner $750 samolians. After expenses, we walked out $257.50 richer. Not bad. Top prize?? $5,000. That would have been totally amazing. But since we never win anything (guess I can’t say that anymore!), we were on cloud nine 🙂

After days and days of celebrating, Purim has finally come to an end. And I am left with a combination of post-partum and impending doom. Sad that Purim is over and dreading what is coming next…Pesach!

Why am I sad?

Is it because I find the thought of cleaning out my kitchen overwhelming? Or that I don’t like matzah? Is it that the year is simply flying by too quickly? Or is it that I will miss doughnuts, pizza, and french fries?

All reasonable possibilities. Ones which I will be exploring in the remaining 27 days…

    Oh, I see now that you are Queen Esther. The tambourine threw me.

    I was expecting a pic of PC for the Inspector mouse-over and I was disappointed. Do you not have pics?

    That is an old Purim pic (5766) on the earlier posting. I am still waiting for someone to send me one from this year. Our new camera didn’t arrive in time 😦

    I am astounded that you could do the math. Did your older son help you with the calculation?

    Even this is beyond him!

    PC did it for me 🙂
