After a highly amusing/diarrhea moment/awkward conversation with an executive at my place of employment, witnessed by... too many people... I was invited to lunch for a debrief.
After the "sports highlights" of my earlier encounter I was able to watch the coupon clippers in their natural habitat.
Fascinating. And apparently lucrative.
Karen and Amy are two professional coupon athletes at work. I've learned that there is a television show, strategies, and even important store personnel selection in the art of couponing.
Here is my amused/amazed/intrigued, can't-look-away state during this experience.

This is what I am thinking, "this looks like a lot of work. but they seem to be enjoying this activity. there seems to be a competition on money saving expeditions. i feel compelled to compete and win..."
So, I think this will become a new hobby. I must learn the art of couponing...
I do not, however, think I will clip coupons in the wind. Although it does combine scissors and running... making couponing even more exciting.
