Lat bubs....

Today is completely random.
{I know you’re surprised. wink}
  I have been totally working on other posts in my brain and today’s wasn’t one of them.  But it entertains me.

So I don’t get out much.  I’ve mentioned this several times.  While it sounds really funny and is a perfect excuse for me being a dork wad there is some truth to it.

The other night it was just Po, Moi and me at home.  I had to go to Michael’s Craft store for some craft items I needed for a class I was teaching.  Michael’s is such a love hate with me.  It’s almost a song I can’t get out of my head, a perfume that fills my senses.  I walk in and breathe deeper; my creative ideas stumbling down the stairs of my minds attic.   
Then there is this.
I’m broke.
So, I don’t go very often, but when I do I walk the entire store…slowly…at least twice
{okay like 4 or 5 times}


Po = patient.

But this lil story has nothing to do with Michael’s, I just happened to be there.  As we were leaving I walked out to where they have all of their bins of items on sale.  There was an older gentleman standing, hovering over those clear Christmas bulbs. 
{You know the kind you hang on your tree}
And he says in a heavy Southern accent:
"Hey…hey…they got ur lat bubs.”
I looked to another older gentlemen who was gazing into another bin.
No response.
The first man again:  “Hey,” a little louder as he stares at the Christmas ornaments. 
“They got ur lat bubs.”
“Huh?” says the second man.
“Don’t cha have them lat bubs over yer kitchen sink?”
The second man looks over then back to his bin.
“Huh?  No, I already ate.”

This my friends is why I don’t leave my house all that often.  The three of us about peed our pants we were laughing so hard.  I’m not sure if it was comical or scary that one of them probably drove a vehicle to get them there! 
Who would have been more disappointed - the man who tried to screw in the Christmas bulb to the light fixture or the man who tried to eat the bulb?
Hmm…I’ll go with gentleman number 2.

This is also why I don’t need TV in my home.  Good clean entertainment - just go out in public from time to time.

Incidentally, these types of conversations happen in my own home all the time.  What does that say about us? {grin}

Happy Wednesday!  I know I'll be busy.  My day has lots of stuff in it…
{profound I know}
