Onward Bound

Sometimes life is tough. Sometimes life is awesome. Sometimes it a little bit of both. Either way, you have to keep going. I'll be running, laughing, crying and sharing it all here.

    Impulse buying

    So why was I so embarrassed when I had to pay a visit to my local hardware store to buy a toilet plunger yesterday? 
    It happens. 

    Toilets get clogged.

    Girls clog toilets too.

    I know this.

    Then why did I almost choke when the helpful store clerk asked me if I was looking for anything specific?

    Um, not at all, I'm just going to wander around and see if anything grabs my attention. You know, impulse buying....Oh hey, whadaya know? A toilet plunger. Now that might come in handy. Fun! I've always wanted one anyway.

    And then I bought some candy (impulse buying) and a nice little herb garden for my porch (impulse buying.... HEY question: does anyone know if herbs die in extreme heat? I certainly don't want to kill these herbs...) Oh, and it was hot so I needed some water. A regular old nice trip to the hardware store on a Saturday.

    Side note: one year, my parents got by little brother a small toilet plunger as part of a plumbers toy kit for Christmas. The child ran around with that thing for months, making it almost cool to be seen sporting a plunger. That is, until my mom caught him actually playing with it in the toilet. Then he wasn't allowed to play with it anymore.

    I would blame it on a boyfriend, or a bratty nephew who tried to flush a sock down the toilet:)
