I spent last night eating and playing with some good friends I hadn't seen in a while. we used to all hang out all the time, way back in the day - so far back that I can't even remember the last time we were all together! good times, good times...
the saddest part was when we'd finished eating and were trying to think of what to do next. yes, the sadness of living in the middle of suburbia becomes quite apparent at 10pm, when you realize that everything but walmart is closed. so what are three twenty-somethings and one thirty-something to do? this is not a trick question. I just said that everything but walmart was closed. so, obviously, we went to walmart. I suppose we also could have gone to a gas station, but there isn't as much to look at there.
one of the guys declared, as we were making our way into the store, that everyone had to buy something. I didn't really want to buy anything, so I decided that my mission was to find something for under $.10. this started to prove to be quite a challange, and I wondered whether or not walmart had a clearance rack. turns out they do! with all sorts of great stuff, like replacement caps for your coleman fuel canister for $.10 and a container of 8000 bbs for $5. and something camouflaged in a plastic bag. which is what my friend got. I was the clear winner, though, because look what I left with:
and then, the self-checkout machine gave me back an extra penny, which is a whopping 25% savings! amazing. and now I just have to figure out what to do with these here stickers... oh, and the other two boys got to go home with this and this. exactly. what in the world is coke blak? a desperate attempt to do something new and cool, but it is just pure grody. blech.
