I ran to Walgreens today to pick up a prescription and I found Junior Mints on sale. A big box of them for $0.69! AWESOMENESS!
So I picked up 10. Yeah, that’s right TEN.
I’m trying to quit smoking, plus I have kids who want everything I have so, yeah, 10.
Anyway, I’m at the check out and I felt the need to explain my large purchase. So, I told the guy “I’m quitting smoking, can ya tell”? I gave a little laugh to show that I can see the humor in this and was surprised when he said “from this? No”.
Hmmmmm, ok, no sense of humor.
As he begins ringing everything up he starts teliing me about a friend of his who quit. He said I should try doing it the way his friend did….. cutting down week by week. I explained that I went cold turkey, and he said that was great if I could do it like that. Way to motivate me, dude!
As I’m picking up my bags to leave he, VERY LOUDLY, tells me that “CIGARETTES AND CHOCOLATE AREN’T THE BEST COMBINATION”. As I turned around and realized that the entire line was staring at me I couldn’t think of anything to say so I just ducked out the door. But I’m sitting here thinking “what the heck”? Did he not hear me? I said I’m quitting. So there is no combo! It’s just chocolate!
So, that was my embarrassing moment of the day.
And for my “I’m feeling old” moment of the day. We had freshman orientation for my oldest son at the high school tonight. It feels like just yesterday that I was in high school, it’s so weird to have a kid getting ready to go.
Well, I’m going to go play some Dance Central with the kids to work off the Junior Mints that I have eaten so many of…. maybe the pharmacist was right. Ughhhh.
