One of my blogging/Facebook friends, Sue Seese at Farvel Cargo, said if you’ve ever in need of a blog post, that all you have to do is go to Walmart.
Today The Wife and I went there and as always, Wallyworld didn’t disappoint…at least, in regards to blog fodder.
Observations from today:
1. We almost never can get out of Walmart for under $100. Today’s total was about $125, I think the last time was closer to $100 and the time before that was about the same. Yes, I got a few new pair of pants for $30 and the wife got baking materials and, as she puts it, “ladies’ materials,” but still $125? Yikes. The Wife and I are just resigned that Walmart is one of those necessary evils in life, like Google and Amazon (hissing sound).
2. While The Wife was getting her “ladies’ materials” and I was picking up my mental pick-me-ups at the pharmacy, a woman in an aisle in between us was arguing loudly on a cell phone.
“I’m trying to find it. Leave me alone. I don’t know where it is. WAIT A MINUTE.”
I later encountered her at various and sundry locations through the store where I learned that she thought her hair was all ratty and that she wasn’t dressed appropriately to go visit with whomever she was talking on the phone. For the record, her hair did look “all ratty” and she wasn’t dressed appropriately for anywhere other than Walmart or on her couch in front of her TV. The only reason I noticed that her hair looked “all ratty” and that she wasn’t dressed appropriately to go visit anyone (although for some reason, I imagined the person on the other end probably was dressed just like her) was because she mentioned it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have noticed her at all.
3. As I was leaving, behind me I heard this whistle:
I turned around, half-expecting to see something like this:
Instead all I saw was this:
Nope, that wasn’t scary.
