Last week was kind of rough...
In the beginning of the week my wife asked me to pick up some toilet paper because we we ran out of our usual brand of Cottenelle, unexpectedly.
So instead of going a couple of extra miles down the road to the supermarket, I took the easy way out and stopped off at the local convenience store. I wound up getting suckered into buying two packs of Charmin Ultra Strong because it was on sale. Something like 2 packs for 4 bucks.
Charmin Ultra Strong really is ultra strong. Unfortunately, my ass is not a piece of wood and the edges of my ass do not have to be sanded down smoothly after I have a bowel movement.
In the long run, I think buying Ultra Strong would save us a good deal of money, but the comfort of my ass is just too important to start pinching pennies over toilet paper.
Later in the week or maybe the same night, I had another major mind fuck...
I bought 2 bottles of coke for 2 bucks at the same convenient store. One of the bottles had the proper traditional top: red, about an inch long, lines on the side, good gripping action etc. But the other bottle had this new cheesy trendy bottle cap design and was only half as long. I didn't discover the atrocity until I was sitting at home on my couch, getting ready to watch a week worth of Tivoed, Happy Days episodes with a nice cold icy coke to enjoy.
Do you understand how emotionally devastating this is to me? I'm one of those guy's that likes to put the cap back on the soda bottle after I'm done taking a sip and sometimes I even like to run my fingernails or tongue along the ridges. Shit, sometimes when I'm done with the soda I even chew on the cap. Can't do that with the new shitty wanna-be bottle cap. Too easy to choke and there's no enjoyment or satisfaction in taking off the cap and putting it back on.
And of course, it rained all week long so I still haven't been able to mow the lawn. Even when it wasn't raining outside, it was.
So let's have a much better week, gang! I have a feeling the Sun's going to come out, tomorrow.
