Is it okay to leave your kids alone in Target and get paid to watch Harry Potter movies

Good Things Utah
  • On GTU this morning – We are talking about the controversial mom this morning that says, “Yeah, I left my kids alone in Target. We needed many, many things at Target. My list still included stain remover, a large bag of tortilla chips, grape jelly, and some day-glo cereal made with high fructose corn syrup and 1950s food science. My kids had already selected electric Baby Yoda toothbrushes. They’d picked their favorite unicorn sparkle toothpaste. We’d searched for #63 HP printer ink. My youngest clung to our cart’s side as we held our breath through the detergent aisles and I cursed about Spot-Shot. Their eye-rolling and muttering said they were done with my shopping agenda. So I told them to go look at LEGOs. They disappeared. I’d left my kids alone in Target. I’d left my kids alone in Target and trusted them to walk unharmed across the store. Someone call social services. I am clearly both incompetent and lazy.” To read the rest of her article tune in with us or click here:
  • Plus, the next time you’re preparing for a trip, you might want to place a quarter in your freezer? Yes, you read that right … and no, we’re not kidding. Basically, if you put the quarter in a cup of frozen water, you’ll be able to tell if your home lost power while you were away — and whether or not your food might have spoiled. This is a travel hack shared by @emerald_outlaw on TikTok. The trick involves freezing a cup of water, then placing a quarter on top. If your electricity goes out while you’re gone, the contents of your freezer (including the cup of water) will thaw. As a result, the quarter will sink.
  • And as real Harry Potter fans know, winter is the best season to watch the films. There’s something about Hogwarts castle, the moody teenagers, the prophetic quest that wraps you in a warm hug. Now, there’s a possible bonus to rewatching the movies this year. USDish is honoring the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (which just passed on November 16) by paying a few fans $1,234 to watch five of the films. In exchange for the cash, the viewers will be asked to let USDish know if watching the movies now as an adult is different from watching them as a kid. Personally, the draw of watching these movies now, after so much else has changed, is that movies transport me back to feeling young. But each viewer feels differently, and USDish wants to know what it feels like to you. Here is the link for the details:
