I almost didn’t take this shot. My inner TBS Funny Hotline advised that one missing apostrophe was a smile, not a guffaw – but then I saw the fine print. S-happy signs definitely qualify for
belly laughs bellies laughs.
Apparently this week they’re only selling one chicken breast. Also, Big Why store brands aren’t just classi, they’re…
What a deal! Regular price $6.79, but look! It’s on sale for $6.79!
I apologize once again for my extended absence. My current excuse is that I fell victim to Jef’s giant mutant ninja cold, and for three days my nose has apparently been packed with jalapeño purée. Fortunately, I enjoy sneezing – but not in marathon format, and not when I have to fight Jef for possession of the Kleenex box. Yesterday, having downed the emergency dose of Sudafed I keep in my wallet, I made that trip to the Big Why to stock up. Eyes running and head aching when I bent down in the cold remedies section, I was disappointed to find only “Sudafed PE”… but it had painkillers and sinus stuff in it, so I bought it – better than nothing, I thought. I took a dose, and – it was probably better than nothing, but it was definitely the DROWSY formula.
After I woke up, I read the box more carefully. Of course! No pseudoephedrine. It’s pseudoSudafed. Luckily, Stop & Shop has a pharmacist available on Sundays, so I scored my 24 doses of the real thing – after considerable paperwork. It didn’t really inconvenience me, but it has to be a pain for the pharmacist; she asked for my license, then flipped through about a month’s worth of Sudafed customers’ signatures, filled out a new line for me and asked for my signature. It was only about a 4-Kleenex wait, and while I doubt that I fit the meth-lab profile, I’m glad they’re screening the buyers. I wonder how much Purell those pharmacists go through, though – she handled the license with my grubby germs all over it, and I used her pen.
And tomorrow I start my new new job – I’ve switched from outbound calling to inbound! Same classified-ads magazine, but this time I’m saying “How may I help you?” instead of thinking, “Sorry to disrupt your day.” I get to write the ads as well as renew them. Fun!
