Confessions: I am Sometimes a People of Walmart

Friday night around 10pm, I got a random phone call to rescue a friend from a "I locked my keys in my car" situation.

Afterwards, due to my newly-acquired first-ever herpes infection (just the cold sore mentioned in my last post, gear down), I found myself desperate for a solution.  The cold sore was fixin' to bloom into something much larger than I was willing to cooperate with.

I'd planned on being in for the night and left the house willy-nilly in what I was wearing when I got the phone call. 

The Outfit:
Purple fleece pajama pants
Bright pink sweatshirt with glitter (this was a gift from my sister - I'm beyond purchasing glitter, unless it goes on my toes)
No bra
Hair in a sock bun

I didn't think anything of running to Walmart to pick up some Abreva.  Until I walked in and looked around.  I was snickering at people.  Then I looked down at my own ensemble.  I could hear the soundtrack for Psycho playing as I realized, "I am a 'People of Walmart.'"

I am firmly of the opinion that emergency ventures after 10 pm for any sort of medicine voids the people of Walmart eligibility. Poo happens, ya know?

I am firmly of the opinion that if you go into Walmart for WHATEVER reason, you deserve what's coming to you.

Seriously, eff that place!

Stephen - Target closes at 10:-( Would it help you to know that I left Walmart empty-handed and headed over to Rite Aid?

Upon occasion I've needed with mild urgency (e.g. gallon of milk), self-assessed my apperance, and concluded, "The only place I can go is Walmart."

Stephen, tell us how you REALLY feel...

I feel weird trying to look cute when I go to Walmart, because I know I'll be picking up strange things like poster board, green plastic leis, and a step ladder. Why not be comfortable when I'll just be lugging that stuff around anyway?

Um, I mean, yeah, your outfit sounds embarrassing.... ;P

Natural herbs have cured so many illnesses that drugs and injection can’t cure. My name is Sharon from USA. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of Herpes, HIV, ALS, Diabetics etc by Dr. AIGBE herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with HIV for the past 6 years which i had spent so much on medications without a solution. But within the shortest time i met Dr. AIGBE, my dream of living longer became a reality. I was cured within two weeks of taking his herbs. I referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too. I know is hard to believe but i’m a living testimony to these very facts. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he cast spell to restore broken marriages and he cast good luck spells to prosper and excel in life. Contact or call/whatsapp him on; +2349014575214. Please share the good news once you are cured.
