Today I decided to go shopping before all the malls die out. Look here – John Holton has a very enjoyable #SoCS post today. After you see Mr. No Respect in Caddyshack, the post moves on to the topic at hand. Did you even know Dan Bell has a “Dead Mall” series? I did not! I always learn something with I stop by John’s place. Such wonderful entertainment with commercial breaks and everything.
Now back to my regularly – not very often – but when the whim strikes – scheduled program of random musing. I went shopping! I tried on clothes. I came home with zilch pronounced zill chay. Not really, that’s only when I am feeling silly and want to mispronounce words. Say it with me zill chay. LOL.
And there were sales all over the freaking place. No wonder the malls are dying. The stores are giving away the farm. But if the style is not my thing then buying new clothes even at deep discounts is a complete waste. I need someone to style me y’all. Puhleese. You see my mom was a garage sale shopper. I have no idea what goes with what.
I am happiest in my house dress. Which btw I plan to wear exclusively once I retire. Yes my house dresses are really nightgowns from Walmart. But they are only $6.88 each. I can get seven brand news ones and be living large.
Why do they do that? What you ask? Why make items something .88 cents? Wally World does that to almost everything. Why not .00 or .99 or .50 or .25? Huh? Why? Anyone know? Anyone care? Nope! Not even me.
I could have made this post a So, … funny math bit. But I’d have to log back into Aetna and that’s not happening. Not today anyway. I need a break. Give me a break. Give me a break. Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.
I must think I’m John. 🙂 Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Ten/four good buddies.
As always, more to come.
