So, I went to Wal-Mart last night. (Actually, I went tonight, but I’m writing this now, and it isn’t tomorrow yet. Wha!! Mind Blown?)
Walking in I encountered a car (like a station wagon) that had a sort of bumper sticker on the back glass. I say bumper sticker, but it was more like a large (very large) decal, that covered the entire back glass. It said “I love America. If you don’t – GET OUT!”
Oh, to live in the center of redneck-ville. Don’t get me wrong, I love this country too, but this sort of contradictory message gets me every time. Welcome to ‘Merica – now get into that melting pot…and you better like it too boy! Heaven forbid we treat our Brothers and Sisters like such if their Mothers and Fathers weren’t born here also.
I needed to get some cough syrup, and I figured on picking up something to eat for dinner. Naturally I left with about $60 worth of crap I didn’t need, like doughnuts, the latest Liam Neeson action flick, and Diet Coke with Splenda. (Gross) I do have to say that I managed to stay away from the Easter Peeps – it was hard, but I did it. Oh, and here’s some advice. If you’re ever wondering what the next holiday is just check out the Seasonal Aisle at Wal-Mart, the day after the most current Holiday. It’s Easter Season Baby! And once again we are celebrating with hollowed out chocolate bunnies, multicolored peeps, and mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as far as the eye can see.
There is something that caught my attention during this particular trip. At first I didn’t think much about it, but eventually…things got a little weird. I ran into some friends and noticed that they were wearing, what appeared to be, workout clothes. At first I thought maybe they were just lounging out. But, this was Friday night, and it was really cold outside. Anyway, back to shopping. What do I see? Some more people walking around in shorts and tee-shirts. Ah…probably nothing. I head to check out and start to leave and I see more people coming into the store dressed this way…what is going on?
Is this a new thing? Are people going to do their weekend shopping after they get their Friday workouts in? Coincidentally our local YMCA is having a grand opening today (tomorrow – ain’t time travel grand?) I wonder if this new shopping phenomenon is part of the membership application?
Do you go to Wal-Mart when you’re finished with your evening workouts?
If yes, check this box
If no, GET OUT!
I probably have it all wrong. Anyway – the cough syrup is starting to kick in so…wha…what a second. Good Morning All! How’s it going this bright and glorious day!
