Shopping is never my drug of choice. But this week’s forays into the retail rat race and resulted in the following three thoughts for this Thursday:
- Purchasing self-serve soft ice cream for Mom at a Casey’s gas station sounded great until an ice-cream-cone-challenged daughter tried to fill the cone. Guess I’ll take Dairy Queen Girl off the list of possible retirement careers.
- Walgreen’s Drugstores have succumbed to Bieber Fever. Their new Justin Bieber card display (I’m not making this up) takes up at least one-fourth of the card aisle. Rather than explain the phenomenon to Mom next time she wants to buy greeting cards, I think we’ll go to the Hallmark Store.
- Next year, I’ll know better than to plan a Costco shopping trip the afternoon before July 4th. I wonder if any of the other shoppers cramming the aisles and the parking lots will do the same.
