Cup of Joe: Frenzied Shopper
More often than not, it’s difficult for me to find the time to make my once per week, necessity-ridden trip to Target to buy all of the non-food-stuff we generally need to survive on a day-to-day basis. Toothpaste. Toilet paper. Sandwich bags. Diapers. Etc. So, quite often, I find myself popping into Target on my way into work after I drop the kids off at preschool and day care. And, when I do this, there’s not much time to spare. Really. About 15 minutes in and out or else I’ll be seriously late to work.
Which means that I’m usually running through the store like a frenzied lunatic, grabbing things off of the shelves and throwing them into the cart. Picture the chefs on Bravo’s Top Chef running through the pantry at the beginning of the quickfire challenge. That’s me.
I usually end up forgetting something. The other day I went to Target for toothpaste and, well, forgot to get the toothpaste. Yes, really. I’m pathetic.
And this morning, as I sit here drinking my coffee, I’m staring at these printed why-do-they-have-cutesy-designs-on-them-that-don’t-match-anything-in-my-kitchen paper towels. And I’ll tell you why they have cutesy designs on them that don’t match anything in my kitchen. Because I meant to get plain paper towels and ended up inadvertently grabbing these instead. These with cutesy designs. That don’t match anything in my kitchen.
Because I couldn’t justify being late to work for paper towels and baby wipes.
This is the first roll of the printed why-do-they-have-cutesy-designs-on-them-that-don’t-match-anything-in-my-kitchen paper towels. I think we have 7 more to get through. Oh joy.
