Shhh! Don't Tell Anyone You Read This!

My wife has taken up a new hobby--mystery shopping.

She's joined various groups around the internet--all free, in case anybody tries to convince you you need to pay to join their service--and when one of them lists a job she's interested in, she signs up.

In addition to the few bucks she makes off each job, she also often gets free food. She's done restaurants, pizza places, and apartment complexes, shipping centers--we haven't done movie theatres yet, but they are available.

It's a lot of writing meticulous reports and taking pictures and remembering names and guessing ages and all kinds of things Marci's better at than me. But it's given us some fun family outings that we didn't have to pay for, and who can beat that?
