Knowledge is power. At least that’s what everybody says. But sometimes ya just know too much. Like when I was a cab driver. I always recognized a stripper when she entered the cab. I could just tell by the big ol’ bag she carried.
So just this past Sunday, I opened up my email to find a $2 coupon for anything in the grocery department at CVS. No minimum purchase. So if you find something for two bucks, it’s free! Need I tell y’all, I took a morning constitutional over to the local branch.
Basically, there was nobody in the store. Not even one cashier waiting on customers. She was busy stocking shelves while the store was empty. Cheese puffs (my fave) were on sale. Six ounce bags three for $3. I busted a move with the coupon.
Rounding the corner to the chips section, I came to discover another consumer in the store. A middle-aged Asian women was humping a half dozen giant bottles of Listerine toward the cashiers’ counter.
Now a normal person might find it curious that the lady was purchasing so much mouthwash – and wonder what it was all about. But not Dollar Bill. Aha! Momesan buying supplies for the funhouse. Girls need mouthwash. Can’t imagine why!
I had to laugh at myself just for a moment and muse “Dude! You just know too much!” Another person might have thought “Gee! She must have really fresh breath”…and picture her gargling at every turn. But me? I had a different mental image. And let me give you a hint. It wasn’t of an Asian woman gargling. More like gurgling!
Oh well! The moment passed and I picked up my three bags of puffs and walked home to partake – in puffs of the cheesy variety. You get the idea.
