Who knew everyone in this town was going to be in the Wal-Marts today? Certainly not I. Had I known every redneck, screaming baby, and mullet-sporting loser was going shopping today, I would have stayed home. But now that I have a new car...oops, did I forget to tell you that?! Yes, I have a new car. It's my for real first new car. Like it's new. And it smells new. And I have never had a new car before. Can you tell I'm excited?! This is where I should show you a picture. And I would. Except my camera isn't working. Hmpf. If you run into a camera giveaway, let me know. I need a camera. And I need someone to give it away. To me.
We parked far, far away from the other vehicles at the Wal-Mart so I didn't realize just how busy it was going to be. I gave each kid a piece of gum upon arriving as to reduce the amount of noise they would make. It worked pretty well. For awhile.
Then of course we walk by the restooms and they both HAVE to go. Typical. I park the full cart and head into the restroom. We walk to the large stall, Cole in front, then me, then Little Miss...complete with a very extravagant purple Easter dress on. She's a princess, remember? Just as I turn around to close the door behind us, I catch Little Miss picking her gum up OFF THE FLOOR AND PUTTING IT BACK IN HER MOUTH! Oh my lord. It happened so fast the only thing I got out was, "Ack, don't p..." And then it was in and she resumed chewing. Dis.gus.ting.
Cut to about 10 minutes later. We are schlepping through the place, desperate to get through the crowd, trying to find an open cash register. Little Miss decides she is tired of her gum and hands it to me. I have no wipes, no tissues, so I pop it in my mouth. As soon as I start chewing, I remember. The gum was on the floor. In the bathroom. At Wal-Mart.
Excuse me while I go gargle bleach.
