An Evening at Wal-Mart
So I was shopping at the Wal-Mart in south Richmond tonight. I love Wal-Mart. I didn't really have access to one when I lived in the New York area, and I appreciate the density of Wal-Marts in the south.
I was there to pick up a bottle of wine, some blue corn chips and salsa to bring to my sister's house. The couple in front of me at the checkout line had these items in their basket:
- One box of Snuggles brand fabric softener sheets.
- One pack of Orbit gum.
- Two different 2500-piece jigsaw puzzles featuring scenic views of Las Vegas, Nevada.
- One box of the new K-Y brand "YOURS+MINE" product you've probably seen advertised on television.
I had to wonder how these products might fit together. Were they part of a shopping list to achieve a specific outcome? What MacGyver-like project might be completed with these components? I don't know.
