The other day I went by myself to my favorite vacation destination, Target. I had to get a few things for some craft projects and while I was there, I decided to grab a bottle of vodka. It’s hard to survive a 3 year-old without it.
First, I found a big Tupperware container for one of my crafts. Then I made my way towards the baby clothes section for a looksy. Baby fever has been taking over my uterus lately but if it does happen, it will be awhile. I just jinxed myself, didn’t I? Shit!.
I went to the grocery section to get some flour and then grabbed a bottle of vodka.
I was amazed because I think this was the first time I didn’t grab anything extra. I didn’t go near the clearance rack, didn’t buy season 6 of Dexter even though that was a tough one to resist, and I spent way less money than I thought I would.
That never happens to me at Target. What the hell is going on with me?!
I was standing in the check out aisle putting things on the counter and started to realize just how freaky deaky I looked with the things in my shopping cart.
I had a bag of flour, 4 bottles of glue, a Tupperware container so big I can sit in it…probably, baby oil, and a bottle of vodka. Hmmmm.
As I was standing there looking at my purchases, I started to blush, thinking about what the cashier may be thinking I’m going to do with all of this stuff.
There were two people behind me who got a good look at what I was buying and I was ready for the floor to swallow me up. I was hoping the cashier would speed it up and at least get the baby oil and the bag of flour in the shopping bag but they sat there on display for a few minutes.
As I was standing there, I thought Blog Post! and started giggling…out loud. That doesn’t look crazy at all, right?
I finally got home and told my husband about my shopping trip. He didn’t find it embarrassing or amusing but that must be because his mind isn’t always in the gutter like mine is.
Do you have any memorable (embarrassing, irritating, funny) shopping trips?
