Happy Valentine's Day

by teresa

Yesterday Ben came home with a giant jar of candy.
At first I thought some little girl had taken a shine to him and given him this gift for Valentine's Day. But then he told me he won it. The librarian had a contest this week to guess how many pieces of candy were in the jar and you get it as a prize. Ben guessed 1,952. They announced the winner yesterday and there were 1,952 pieces of candy.
Amazing!
Anybody need lottery numbers picked?
(just kidding)

Congratulations, Ben. I wonder if they thought you had somehow gotten into the jar and counted the candy. It's pretty amazing that you guessed the exact number. Oh, and 1952 was a very good year.
