We went to Costco today, which is always a horrific experience for me. I think we needed some soap but ended up spending $171.83 on impulse purchases mostly instigated by ME. Did I really need that big plastic jug of chocolate covered almonds? It seemed pretty important at the time. I walk up and down the aisles like a goddamn zombie.
I am easily distracted. If I spot a shiny object out of the corner of my eye, I’ll wander off to examine it, leaving dear family behind. Sometimes, I’ll be sampling some Italian sausage or mac and cheese, look up and discover that I’m all alone. I had to phone Mrs. Wife TWICE to locate them. It’s a big, scary, crowded place!
After locating everyone the second time, 9-Year Old Daughter handed me this note as a reminder to pay attention to my surroundings.
