Yesterday I ran into Walgreens, the night before I got 20 free prints from their photo center & needed to pick them up.
I resisted the 75% off Valentines.. but I did grab a bag of damned Easter candy, but you can read more about that here.
I glanced at all the gigantic stuffed animals & saw a LARGE black monkey.. and i thought "TRAVIS!!!" And had to walk away quickly to keep myself from buying it. I mean, my kids don't need more toys.
As I checked out, the cashier commented on the 2 little tins I got (empty decorative tins, like for trinkets) that she cant wait for all the V-Day clearance to be gone, that she is tired of walking down the aisle & seeing the poor stuffed animals. She said she actually feels bad for them & has to resist buying them just so they go away b/c they just suck her in.
I told her I knew exactly what she meant, laughed & left.
I got to the car, pulled out the phone & called Mike
Me- "..So.. 75 % off $20..that's like.. $5 huh?? "
Mike- "yeah why?'
Me- "Oh..there is just this big monkey at Walgreens on clearance & is it bad I wanted to get it for Andy & name is Travis???"
Mike - ((laughs)) How much is it?
Mike- "How BIG is it?"
Me- "..bigger than Ryan.."
Mike- "You gotta get it!"
I then turned around, and walked back in.. The cashier looked at me & I said "Damn monkey, he sucked me in!"
As she rung him up, I patted his head, she looked at me, smiled & said "I do that every time I walk down the aisle.. THANK YOU."
What can I say.. I'm pleased to know someone other than myself gives inanimate objects feelings TOO!!!
Now, I just want to say. People really tick me the fuck off. And it isn't like I don't feel bad for the poor lady who got her face eaten off by Travis the chimp, but I mean.. COME ON! I might get bitched at for this but.. I sort of have always felt like.. people who try to domesticate wild animals & get attacked.. well.. you kinda had it coming. They don't call them WILD for no reason, dumbass. I feel awful when I hear about stuff like this.. for the ANIMAL. Its just wrong & unfair all the sick things people do with animals for their own entertainment. I have been, and always will be, that chick who probably likes her dog more than those people she met at a party. I mean, my dog may eat litter critters, but atleast she isnt a boring douchebag!!
Now that people are appalled at what a horrid person I am...
Here's Andy & Ryan with Travis!!!
I also have a video, however Mike & I possibly make jokes about the Monekys revenge, facial eating & Andy says "animals cant be domesticated." I am not heartless, I have one very cold, little black heart, but I do know what happened to that poor woman was a tragedy, so I probably shouldnt post it.
Unless people ask for it.. that is!!!
