Well, near the end of March, Hy-Vee posted a picture on their Facebook page of Henry holding the donuts. This is what it said:
What do you do when a kid named Henry points out your mistake and laughs? You make his day. With donuts.
Thanks, Henry. Then they provided a link to my blog! (Excellent, right?)
I had about 6,000 hits on my blog following the Hy-Vee publicity, which is a LOT of traffic. Lots of people were reading my blog. Lots of people were cheering for Henry and his eagle eyes. Make no mistake (no pun intended) , I was going bananas!
Then Supermarket News picked it up:
Then another blogger, Todd Pernicek, wrote about the situation in his blog, Charlie and his human.
I love when he writes, "While the mistake on the signage is amusing--along with being the true "hook" of
the story--what I find most compelling is the important power of education and how one attentive, bright, eight-year-old applied something he is learning in school to his everyday life."
He writes the truth, doesn't he?
I see there is a new sign at Hy-Vee above the donut case. It hasn't been up long. I have to admit, I sort of miss the old one.
