Decided to go Christmas shopping to make up for lost time .
Realized I needed to have yesterday’s hair highlights repaired.
Should have realized when the hairdresser said ‘CHUNKY’
that was NOT a good sign.
(Never been a fan of the word chunky
under any circumstances.)
Left for hairdresser.
Left hair salon with different colors of chunky highlights.
Realized I had been calling games for my grandsons DSI instead of DS.
Told salesperson it was an honest mistake, after all there are a million
CSI shows on television.
Realized he was staring at my highlights.
Whatever. Join the club.
Decided to really push the envelope.
Went to WalMart.
Became distracted by the number of people in WalMart
and their intensity and confidence.
Left empty handed.
Went to JC Penney’s to look for little boys pajamas.
Stared at pajamas wondering what size to get.
Got them both the same size because the legs looked tight.
Realized I have become my sweet grandmother Mamaw,
whose Christmas gifts were always the wrong size.
Now I understand why.
Went to Ross .
Felt excited because, after shopping for an hour, my basket was full,
and I was marking things off my list.
Turned the corner at the back of the store and wondered why everyone
was facing the same direction with their baskets.
Realized it was the checkout LINE.
Tomorrow’s a new day.
Planning strategy to outsmart other Ross shoppers.
Just realized what the strategy is…
STAY IN LINE.
