In a chapstick emergency, I’m your man

2 06 2008

I cleaned out my purse today. This is what was inside:

-glasses (not in the case, just free-floating) (and not that we’re on the brink or anything, but if we ever got divorced, the Number 1 Reason Jeff would cite as to the destruction of our marriage would be that I neglect my glasses and have never once put them in their case)

-keys (real ones)

-keys (baby toy ones)

-four different kinds of chapstick

-wad of clean tissues

-wad of dirty tissues

-a bunch of balled up reciepts

-two burp cloths

-a small bottle of Purell

-pacifier

-granola bar

-two plastic dinosaurs (one glow-in-the-dark)

-a pair of baby socks

-three baby mittens (none of which matched)

-a fake flower thing from the VFW

-two hair clips (I haven’t worn a hair clip in like, a year)

-and one of these (it’s a big plastic ball, if you can’t tell)

Did I mention my purse is only like, 6×9″?

Now here’s what was NOT in my purse:

-my wallet

Too bad I did not figure this out until AFTER I’d shopped for over an hour at Target. The Target that is Far Away. With a sleepy, whiny, hungry child in tow A sleepy, whiny, hungry child who was NONE TOO PLEASED to leave behind his toy so that we could go home and get MONEY to pay for our stuff. I probably spent more on gas going to and from and to and from again to Target than I did on everything I bought.

Speaking of what I bought- little boy clothes, on sale! Including matching t-shirts, for less than 2 bucks each. Can you just die from the clichéed cuteness that is dressing your children in matching clothes?

Baby is too cute! I just want to eat up those cheeks.

By the way, the ‘possibly related posts’ on this entry has ‘deadly snake bites penis’ posted. LOL

This post was great. I thought it was going to be another purse list only, but you had my full and immediate sympathy on your missing wallet. I think I would have just given up and stayed home after that. I always end up buying stuff I don’t really need at Target anyway. Our monthly Entertainment budget has funds for “shopping at Target,” and that’s it. Kind of pathetic. 😉

Oh, Oliver, my man. Those cheeks. THOSE CHEEKS.

If he and the Buddha Baby ever got together, the weight of their cheeks might tilt the earth.

Dude, I am the queen of the misplaced (or rather not put back in place) wallet. And I call you Dude because I’m from California. So I love the matchy matchy and know how flippin’ cheesy it is, but I cannot stop buying gender neutral matching pjs for my boy and girl. It’s just irresistible.
