Today was my first venture into Holiday Shopping 2k6. I used to think I was a pretty cool Mom; I know what kids like, what they're into and I speak their language.
Armed with two xmas lists and a vision, I'm prepared to pick up gifts for my Brood.
I'm doin pretty good, checking off things as I go. The Boy's writing is still very child like (mind you he's 7 years old) and a might hard to understand. I squint until I understand what it says. I had to think back because he explained it before I left the house.
*Enters ESPN Game Station*
I had NO. IDEA. what this thing was. Apparently, neither did the Walmart staff. Judging by the name, I thought it was a hand held game type thing. He said it had four different games on it. I'm in the Electronics Department walking in circles. Eventually, I give up.
How many of you shop at Payless? Don't eein sit up there and front like you don't. I bet half ya'll got a pair of Pro Wings in the back of yo closet! Anyway, I went in there hopin for a BOGO to get the kids some xmas shoes. Um...since when Payless have shoes for $25?? I thought the objective was to PAY. LESS. Maybe it's me. I left disappointed.
Damn if I was payin 25 bones for a pair of less than leather shoes. I head to Tarjhey cause I knew they'd have a better price. They did of course. I got the Grand Diva something she's been buggin the crap outta me for. Got em for a real good price too. Damn you Payless! *shakes fist*
While in Tarjhey a big box with ESPN blazoned across the front catches my eye. It's that damn Game Station I was lookin for! It puts me in the mind of a big arcade game. Looks fun. Looks like it needs to be assembled. Fuck allat. I check the price...$135! Um...I love my kids, but not enough to spend that much on a gahdamn toy!
