For you Niki, since I seem to entertain you with stories that are humiliating for me, haha for you. :)
I coupon. I spend a chunk of time cutting and organizing my coupons, and then planning my trip to whatever store has a great sale. A few weeks ago, I was on my way out the door while the kids were in school, to go to the grocery. Hadn't eaten yet, so I made myself a fruit smoothie, and drank it in the car.
I was feeling great - childless, gonna save some major money, beautiful day, life is good. Singing in the car kind of good.
I get to the store, and my good mood continues. They have enough of the products that I want to score my deal, and I practically skip through the store, saying - and smiling - hello to stockers, other shoppers, small children.
I check out, and the cashier takes note of my deal, and we get to talking about coupons. I notice she looks deeply at me, and I wondered if maybe she is a little special.
You know special...
I get to my car, unload and am heading home. My tongue moves along my teeth and it feels like there's something there. At a red light, I lower my visor mirror and...
I have approximately 50 chewed up pieces of blueberry and strawberry seeds stuck in my teeth. My teeth were COVERED in chunks of fruit. I didn't know what to do for a second, I just stared at myself, mortified I was in public like that!!
So who's....you know...special, now? The cashier probably couldn't figure out how I haven't managed to coupon my way to a toothbrush.
Next up, the time my boob fell out of my shirt. Or maybe I should keep that one to myself.
