Actually we were standing by the exit in stunned silence looking at the total, when I realized TubaDad was still holding a package of coin-rolling papers under his arm. Yep, he had inadvertently shoplifted. When he went to pay for them, I suddenly yelled “If they’re not less than 67 cents, forget it!!!” And, instinctively grasping the gravity of this occasion, he just put them down in the nearest bin and backed away. Hee.
So spill it, have you ever gone into Target for one specific item and actually walked out with ONLY that one item? Or -- my modus operandi – do you walk in for one item and walk out pushing a full-to-the-brim basket of home decorations, little girl clothes, holiday items, linens, and all sorts of didn’t-know-you-needed-it-but-can’t-live-without-it items that bring your total to an astonishing amount?
PS: We would have spent even less, but the girls were with us, hence the ring pops. Plus, Ro walked out of there with the priciest item, the funky foam castle kit, because she held it up and said “Come on, can we please get this because it’s just so cool?!!!!” Well, it’s hard to say no when you’re cracking up. That’s TubaDad sleeping on the floor in the background of this photo, by the way. Dude got up at the crack of dawn to play golf with his buddy and now can barely stay upright.
