Something Wicked This Way Comes…

So there we were at the grocery store, minding our own business…

when from out of nowhere, a whole busload of Easter candy jumped into our cart. Now, if it had been full priced Easter candy we would have said, “Back, foul vermin! Be gone!”

But upon closer inspection, we found it to be 50-75% off. Oh, and the Cadbury Eggs–8/$1. Yeah…8.

So instead, we said, “You poor little unwanted, homeless Easter candy. Come with us and live happily ever after.”

So they did.

Of course, we don’t intend to eat it all…you know…by ourselves, or anything.

No, no.

That would be silly.

We could easily share with anyone…if the mood strikes us.  :]

Here’s a bonus too. As we were at the checkout–the cashier guy says, “Hey…ahhh…you can have one of those Easter Jello molds too. Take a couple, because you bought so much stuff. It’s free.”

I say, “Free? Why?”

The wise guy leans in closer like he’s sharing his locker combination, and says, “Cause…



Joke’s on him.

I just smiled and said,

“Not at our place, Skippy.”

  1. I don’t know where you shop but I obviously don’t live as near to heaven as you do. Not a single bag of left overs at my store. In fact I couldn’t even find any Cadbury eggs for my little chicks before Easter. I’m sure they’ll need therapy from the trauma and you know what I always say, “eating chocolate is way less expensive and ten times as effective as counseling”. So Dr Anderson, what are your hours?

    A special Happy B-day to Jillian and Congrats girl on your graduation – you’re awesome!

  2. Did you really call the check-out guy “Skippy”? I hope that you did. 🙂 Yay for on sale Easter candy!
