I am posting this a bit early today, since I have to make a last minute run to the store to get printer cartridges. Why do I need that? Well, among other things, I want to be able to print crib notes for my interview this evening.
I don’t know about you, but I find I am always running to the store to get completely random assortments of items. One rather memorable cart included a purple thong, a machete, a carbon monoxide monitor, trash bags, and a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream.
I don’t know what the checkout lady made of that. Fortunately no police showed up at my house later to ask about potential Purple Pantied Machete Avenger plans, so I guess it was only memorable for me.
What sorts of odd combinations of things show up in your shopping basket? Do you look at your cart and think people judge you for your purchases? What (if anything) have you purchased recently that you felt self-conscious about?
