Some After Christmas Shopping
It wasn't in the plans. It just happened.
How many stories start out that way?
Of course, they often involve teenagers in cars. This one involves a car, but that's where the similarity ends.
Coming back from Joplin last night I wanted to get out of the car and walk as a preventive measure to avoid blood clots. It was cold, so we stopped at a Walmart - nicely heated to walk around a bit.
Now, the week after Christmas, where do you think I'm going to go in a Walmart?
But the part of the story that's missing is that this Walmart had marked the ornaments down to fifty cents a box. Yes. Fifty cents. And they had some cool things.
Now I have some cool things.
And so does Greg.
I wanted to get some things for the Cosmosphere, but we literally ran out of room, so I went back today to get some goodies for work.
Today it was a frenzy so I'm glad I didn't delay. And today I had a van, which meant I didn't have the same problem I had last night.
