tagline

The serious long winding post I’ve been laboring through 2 weeks can wait. Am feeling very peppy and quite happy right now, and I haven’t grinned like this awhile. Nothing grand, but just the fact that getting back in touch and sorta kinda arguing was ultra cool.

So yes, since am in a giggling teen mood, am gonna post something juvenile enough to go with it. Just to mark the day and all that.

Last week I was at Walmart. Yes, I do shop at Walmart for the basics. Tupperware, foil, stuff. So I was there and I had a contact lens prescription for daughter and a medicine refill for my dad to take care of. So I go in drop c/l prescription off and I walk straight down past the women’s and men’s coz the son desperately needed some socks for his scout camp.

I see this dude with a phone plugged to his ear and hovering around the delicates.

Nothing abnormal about it and I carry on. I wrap that, pick up a few earrings, a CD cover stack, and then to the pharmacy. Give in my prescription, and munchkin decides to throw a fit on wanting to eat a Sub. So round back up there and I see the same dude gently pushing things around, peering and all the whiel talking on the phone.

I continue to think it’s okay.

Hop over, pick up some cards, some foil, a laundry basket, then go to crafts and spend another $10 on useless junk that only I can pick up at the craft section. Wind back to Vision center to check if the Optometrist was in. Speak with him and check pharmacy. They say 5 more minutes. Uselessly bored now and tired of scavenging around, I realized form the corner of my eye that the dude was still in the same aisle.

I had to double-take, come up from behind and take this picture.

Picture 11-1

Now you worthy reader is left with the challenge of coming up with a tagline.

Clues to help you along:

  1. The man spent close to 45 minutes in that section.
  2. He was talking with a female on the phone. I just know, don’t ask how I know, I just do.
  3. He was clearly very indecisive.

Go for it. Just don’t get icky unless it’s witty and funny, then it’s all good. Or maybe not, I reserve the right to chuck it if I don’t like it. yeayea, am a bit of a prude unfortunately.

If you ask me, apart from shock to amusement, I felt sorry for the chap!

  1. “You’re sure I’ll get them here and not in the tents section?”

    “I don’t think it’s a smart idea for both of us to wear these on stage and call ourselves ‘thongbirds'”

    “If I were Prince Charming I’d much rather fit these out looking for Cinderella than some dumb glass slippers”

  2. “You’re right, honey, the thong will do a good job of hiding my plumber’s crack”

    “I knew it! The reason you wanted to keep the lights off last night! These things are padded!!!”

    “I am on the horns of a dilemma – the green one’s easier to slip off, but I am afraid it will get stuck in my teeth.”

  3. I don’t think I’m creative enough to come up with something here. Or I guess I am just too cynical! I mean, come on, a man on the phone trying to figure out women’s underwear. I mean, forget the underwear part, I’m sure if it was a question of distinguishing between sugar and flour, he still wouldn’t be able to do it.

    On a different note, I like the way we actually feel the need to justify ourselves about going to Walmart. I have to do the same thing as well, each time I mention it! Grmpf!

    • lol@your “cynicism” :-)

      Oh, I love Walmart. I don’t care what anyone says, the place has the best deals for everyday stuff and it’s just so therapeutic walking around aimlessly gathering affordable trinkets there.

  4. ‘u kiddin me with these prices? I can get 12 pairs of mens’ underwear for the same price…. n der is barely even cloth on this one!! ‘

  5. Guys: Those were some LOL’able taglines. I hear that I need to post more of such crazies instead of the serious ones. I may just do that too!
    Thank you!

    Naren, Bhel and Buddy go have cake! :-)

  6. “Honey, once again I’m sorry I asked you to buy my boxers for me. Can I please come home now?”

    BTW what Walmart do YOU go to? Just curious, coz I think I’m gonna be looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life now

  7. Growing up, I remember seeing the “Moods” ad that used to be on TV rather often.

    I’m reminded of that when men try to whimper around, umm, fun things.

    Grow a pair (balls, not boobs).

  8. Are you sure you want just one? Cuz I think there’s this lady clicking photos of me here – I could hang around for a while and get some publicity you know.

I'd love to hear what you have to say, do write back!
