So this Wild Hare involved Target, David and Tactical Measures.
Again, same as last week, my Wild Hare Wednesday's are tales to be told. So go pee, get a drink and get comfy. hee,hee,hee.
Ok... so being a rather small, tiny, person, I'm not one to partake of Black Friday or Day after Christmas Sales for the fear of being trampled to death! I have to stand my ground with my buggy on a normal day at the grocery store for Pete's Sake! (back away from the lettuce... I got bunnies to feed!)
So anyway. I was walking through Target before Christmas and came across the most fabulous, gorgeous, down right, had my name written all over it, wrapping paper!!! Helloooooooooo my lovely. $5.00 a roll!!! What!!!! No way!!! But then... the light bulb went off. "AFTER CHRISTMAS SALE." Oh boy!! I would get it after Christmas!!!! It will be half price!!! Oh boy what beautiful gifts I will wrap with this "oh so fabulous paper that just screams my name!" People will oooh and ahhhh and cheer when their gift is wrapped with this paper. They won't even want to open it!!! It's lovely, it's gorgeous it's...Ok... I'm back....
I did some reconnaissance work and located where all the rolls were on the isles.
Then all of a sudden I thought about getting up at "oh stupid o'clock" and getting ready to get to Target. I'm totally NOT a morning person. My alarm goes off and I normally need a good 15 minutes to get a grip on reality. Then of course there's the whole hair and makeup thing (not like I do much) but let's just say that if I leave the house without my simple hair and makeup, I will turn all those that look at me to stone. Yes... I'm Medusa in the morning. It's really bad. Plus, I can't go anywhere without some coffee first thing and some food or I will pass out in a lump. All this would require me to get up even earlier! Ick, gag, puke!
Then I thought about David. Ahhh yes, dear hubby, David. David is bald (well pretty much). David is use to eating breakfast at 9:00 during his first break at work. David wears the same "uniform" jeans, white socks, white tee shirt every day. Fifteen minutes and the man can be out the door like lightning!!!
So he went to Target, grabbed his buggy and proceeded to to go up and down the isles. He called me twice for some tactical measures and low and behold he got 14 rolls of my fabulous wrapping paper!! Mission accomplished!!! Of course, I couldn't help but laugh at the fact he was the only male in the wrapping paper isle. Those women must have thought one of two things. A: he's obviously gay with that paper or B: what a lucky woman to have a husband like that.
Sooooo.... how did I convince him to get the wrapping paper and look like a gay guy the day after Christmas?? Give a man a flat screen, state of the art, TV for Christmas and he'll do just about anything! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
A very successful Wild Hare indeed (for all parties involved).
