Clean Up On Aisle 5, Bruised Ego

Normally I live on the edge and go to the grocery at the worst possible time–late afternoon after work and school when everyone is cranky and hungry. And by everyone, I mean me.

I celebrated the first school free Friday by heading to the grocery first thing in the morning. Fridays are normally my work from home day but during the school year I’m busy getting the girls to school and there’s no time for rise and shine grocery shopping so it was a treat to wander the aisles of the grocery when the store was relatively empty.

Yes it’s a wild, carefree life I’m living here in suburbia.

Any way, everyone was so friendly, especially at the checkout and I could just feel people smiling at me.

I got home and grabbed a few bags to bring into the house, catching a glimpse of myself in the window as I walked by.

A good three inches of white cotton underwear was sticking out like a flag from the back waist band of my low-rise capris. The t-shirt I’d thrown on was apparently way too short to cover my granny panties of the day.

I guess it could have been worse. I could have had plumber’s crack and forgotten to wear any underwear at all.

    Oh goodness, I can see you now. You had the flag of surrender flying and didn’t even know it. I would have pulled you to the side and told you girl. Just be grateful that it was early and everyone else was probably so tired they won’t remember.

    I also love to roam the grocery early in the morning when no one is around. Especially if I’m on a coupon saving hunt. (BTW I scored a great deal on Batter Blaster with the coupon you gave me Christmas before last. Two cans for .19 +tax). Amazing how the “Chicas of ’87” party hard in the am now.

    you know that the only time mom goes to the grocery is 8:00 in the morning.,
    I would never venture out to shop after noon.
    You make me smile with your entries. Nothing else here in the woods to make me smile. Thank you for going to doctor with me today….Meant more then you will ever know. Enjoy the zuchinni.

    Stuff like that has happened to the best of us. Just take a deep breath and smile as it could have been much worse your Dr or the school principal could have been in line behind you!

    Well things like that happen at times when you thought everything’s bound to be perfect when you wake up in the morning. At least you were able to do the grocery shopping and did not forget to wear your undies 🙂

    If you’d like to save your money, then you may want to wait
    for some time. Now read this entire post, now is the time to do
    this. In the realm of video games, such a thing can be done.
