Lsst night my family and I were shopping in one of America’s most well-known chainstores. It was an odds and ends mission. Just a few of the things in our cart: four tiki torches, a large lily plant, my favorite pink begonias, two pair of capris, a cheese grater, fine mesh strainer, and a sketchbook. It’s always at least 10 shopping bags plus.
Back in Manhattan you would probably go to 5 different stores to put a haul like that together, unless you went to one of our 2 K-Marts. But then again there’s no gigunda free parking lots in the city, so we are usualky limited to what we can haul on our persons pack mule style.
As I was hanging a sharp right towards a dispkay of Pringles Potato Chips a security person ran past me.
Seems a woman had her purse snatched near gardening supplies. I was stunned. The local residents in the store even more than me. This area of Massachusetts has very little crime.
My daughter rolled our cart over to the sobbing 60-something to offer assistance. Poor thing was too confused to understand us. So sad.
My parting words to her; “Call your credit card companies as soon as you get home.”
My project for the day is to record all the “numbers” in my bag; 800 custoner service, account numbers etc etc., and lock them up somewhere. I’m also changing every online password because its been a while.
And they’re going to be really hard ones.
That was for Mr. Or Ms. Hijacker ;)
You all have a great and safe Saturday.
Are you familar with Flint? He was a parody of the Bond character. The films more than made back the money invested - there should have been more than two. Coburn is elegant, flirtatious and agile in the role. And like Bond he can fight wearing purest white, and never get dirty. ;-)
Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
My children (one boy, one girl) who pretty much like the same things have given up buying or playing with toys. We do art projects and books instead for most gifts for them.
I like pink stuff AND superheroes.
