The 80′s.

by statia on August 4, 2002

I went to Wal Mart tonight for a few things. This particular Wal Mart just opened a few weeks ago. So I was wandering around to familiarize myself with where things were. Imagine my surprise when I saw Care Bears in the toy section!! I can’t believe it. It made me all nostalgic and took me on a trip down memory lane. I remember when these things were all the rage as a kid.

Then I remembered how long ago that was and I thought to myself, damn I’m getting old. They say that everything old is new again. It’s sad when the you remember the “old” the first time it was out.

So…how was that Orgy of Retail that is Wal-Mart? Did you take the score
I invented?

Why is that no matter how new a WalMart is, it will turn trashy and rednecky within only a couple of weeks?

Exactly. Ours is brand spanking new. Very nice store. Very clean actually. But I always feel the need to shower everytime I get out of there. I’ve wondered if it’s me. Do I think I am better than the people there or something? How terrible. But I’ve spoke to others and they have described the same feeling.

Todd, you’re so right. Jesus, it was like freak central there.
