A Pair of Pants and Some Cat Food

Wednesday morning, I called the Wife and asked if she had prepared a list of things we needed from Wal-mart.

The Wife likes Wal-mart. So much so that she believes that if she's been good, when she dies she'll go to Wal-mart. Which meant that while she hadn't prepared a list, she'd get right on that.

So, when we got off work, we headed that way. I had in mind to pick up a couple of pairs of black pants, and a couple of cans of the Wal-mart brand cat food.

The Wife had other plans, I found out.

The receipt indicates that, in addition to a couple of pairs of black pants and some Wal-mart brand cat food, we also bought greens, Wheat Thins, onions, paper plates, ice cream cups, frozen dinners, prepared dinners, cheese, sausage biscuits, carrots, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, marshmallow treats, algae chips (yummy! okay, for the fish), tangerines, tomatoes, BC Powder, 46 count pantie liners (her subtle hint that it's okay to stay up and watch Discovery channel tonight), bananas, Diet Rite, herbal supplements, cocoa bars, Aleve, goldfish food, H&R Block Tax Cut (I hate April), shampoo (mine, not hers), rice mix, gelatin, tea, oatmeal, mayonnaise, pork & beans, butter buds, evaporated milk, fabric softener, hoisin sauce (I don't even know what that is), and cans of tuna.

And it only cost $206.17.

I'm glad I only wanted to get pants and cat food.

  4. LOL! Well, at least you got your pants and the cat got some food and you're stocked up until the next visit!
