A Visit to the Longs....

So today is day three of my "staycation". LOL that word just kills me, because well, my entire homelife has been a staycation, it's just so darn fun living here! Here I am having bachelorette dinner....pizza delivered in a box! YUM!!
As some of you know, on Friday we got cable so now my computer is super fast and as a bonus, we have some television. We decided that we want to watch the Olympics for the first time since we moved here in 1992....so whichever Olympics came last before that. But of course we pick the "lets boycott the Olympics because it's in China and all that" year...so we'll just see! Then, if we haven't totally turned ourselves, or our child into zombies, we might even keep television. Right now though, I'm sorta watching Tyra...and what the heck? What a waste of time....before that I watched Morrie Povitch..man, that dude has gotten old since the last time I saw his show in 1992! What a bunch o crap, i'm telling you!
So after I looked around and noticed that my house was a mess because I am on staycation and therefor do not have to do dishes, pick up my clothes, or clean up all the sewing stuff strewn all over the house, I thought I oughta spend the morning cleaning up a bit and then head over the the store for some unneccessary plastic objects, beauty products and cleaning supplies.
So I headed over to the shampoo section and looked for something not too crappy. I hate drug store shampoo if ya really wanna know, but since I live in the boondocks and the local beauty supply store went out of business... I perused the sorta high end head detergents. There was a mom/teen daughter combo shopping at the other end of the aisle. Suddenly the daughter yells out, "HENNA AND PLACENTA SHAMPOO!!! WHAT? THEY USE PLACEN....."
The moms hand claps over her kids mouth and through gritted teeth, says, "Will you please......."
OMG I thought I was going to fall over on the floor laughing. I had to turn my head, grab my shampoo and run for the checkout stand. I laughed out loud for a good 5 minutes after that. Coulda peed my pants it was so funny! Thank you, little teen, that was just hilarious but I just wanna ask, where do they get that placenta from anyway?
So then on the way to the checkout I was stopped by a sudden olfactory memory. It smelled like warm flowers and reminded me so much of Bangalore. I had to walk back and forth a few times to figure out it was the heat coming from the coke fridge that was heating up some scented beauty products on the "Last Chance" sale shelf. I peered into the shelf to see what could be making that smell and that's when I noticed this:

OK but, you have to understand, it had a sale price, and it said LAST CHANCE! Now, what I wanna know is, why would contraceptive foam be marked down? Was it expired? If so, why buy it? Did it prove ineffective causing unwanted pregnancies? If so, why.... OK no, I have a feeling that this LAST CHANCE item is going to end up in the dumpster out back.
So there you have it.
Have a lovely night! It's time to break out the bachelorette party supplies.

You must be a hoot to shop with. I had a big smile reading this.

I could not believe it. I looked up the shampoo and there it was. I should have known you would not lie to us but I think I am with the teen, why? They state "Environmentally responsible formula. Cruelty free. No animal testing" and "The result is ravishingly beautiful hair with manageability you never before thought possible." Gee, maybe you should go back to the store and pick one up.

You just to funny. Oh and I think I have been on a staycation for a long time here, at least it looks like I am.

Have a great staycation.

OMG, I do the same thing on Last Chance items even when I know I won't use them or better yet when I know I DON'T need them.


I do not watch a lot of tv but I do enjoy having it because there are a couple of shows I really like.

Hope you have a good day!

LOL LOL LOL....Last chance would have warned the normal human being not to buy it, but there are those who wear their stupid signs and probably bought that in the last few moments of it's shelf life. I can see it now

Why looky here Marg, there's this foam stuff here you can use instead of the normal..it's even on sale... Okay Fred....

Nine months down, 46 year old mom sits with her new baby....husband can't be found.....but a huge pile of fresh dirt rest behind the womans home....... WOOOOOTTT

OMG - Maybe it's really the LAST CHANCE for somebody out there. Who knows?

And teens are teens and queens are queens. Right?

After all you got a good laugh and your life was extended by 11 minutes and 22 seconds.

have a great rest of the week.

This afternoon I'm going west. Direction Minnesota. The land of the Norse.
