BIZARRE

Yesterday was a bizarre day. Farrah's death was sad. Michael's death was a shock but not a surprise, if such a combination of sentiments is even possible. But on a personal and much less tragic note, something happened to me yesterday that I still can't quite believe was possible. Yet, it happened; here's the play by play:

I walked into Target for a couple of items that we wanted to take to the cabin.

I had to walk through the whole store, all the way to the back by the toy section.

I had not one but TWO children with me, and they were the youngest ones to boot...did I mention we were in the toy section???

Target had NEITHER of the two items I wanted to buy.

We walked BACK through the store to the checkout aisle.

I was confused...bewildered...STUNNED....THERE WAS NOTHING IN MY CART!

Would they let me out of the store if I didn't buy anything?

Were my children kidnapped by aliens and replaced with drones who don't know how to beg for things?

What was going to happen to us if we left Target without spending $150???????

Do you take the cart with you even though it's empty???? Like a security blanket?

I WALKED OUT OF TARGET YESTERDAY WITHOUT BUYING ANYTHING. THE UNIVERSE REMAINED STABLE.

I FEEL SO FREE! FREE

Funny write-up! I know what you mean ... I've had that amazing empty cart experience a couple of times myself ;)
