I didn’t have much hope for today since it was a holiday for school but not for work. After the 477th distraction and hearing “we have nothing to eat” for the 329th time, I gave up on getting work done and went to the store to pick up a few essentials.
As I dart into Walmart in my old sweats, with no make-up, having visions of being the subject of a people of Walmart photo, I thought to myself, “I bet I see everyone I know.” I was wrong. I only saw half the people I know. Never fails. (But as long as there are people like this in the world, I think it’s safe to say my 15 minutes of fame won’t be from appearing on “People of Walmart.”)
I pick up enough food to sustain the boys for a couple of hours – well at least one hour – plus some cleaning supplies (the only positive to the kids being in trouble is the huge list of extra chores I get to make for them). That’s all I came for so I head toward the checkout counter.
Somehow by the time I get to the front of the store, I have a cart full. More food (4 hours worth now), more cleaning supplies (thought of more chores) and a $3 t-shirt so I wouldn’t have to do my laundry tonight. Oh, and 2 pumpkins. That was the most exciting thing I bought. Until I went back for one more item…
Things were really looking up. Until I got home and saw the “map.” What??? Vermont Cream is GONE!!!! No!!!!!!!!!!! Why would they get rid of the BEST piece in the box?? Vermont Cream has been my favorite candy for as long as I can remember. Now even my box of chocolate is having a shit day.
I notice a new addition. Damn you “Maple Nut Butter.” You stole my beloved Vermont Cream’s spot! Why would they add that flavor when there is already “Maple Cream” which is just so…average. I wanted to throw it in the trash but was curious what could possibly be good enough to take the spot of perfection. I bit into it and…
It was DEE. LISH. US. Vermont Cream, only smoother. Buttery-er. Yummier. Vermont Cream, I will miss you. We had many good years together. But I guess sometimes you have to accept change. And sometimes change IS good.
Make sure you check out the Raspberry Cream piece. It came pre-smushed. I swear it was like that when I opened the box. Really!
Someone at the factory obviously didn’t know the “only smush the bottom” trick.
To keep me from eating the entire box, I said I’d share with the family. But I got first choice(s) before they got to take any.
Before I let them have at the box I rearranged all the pieces so they didn’t match the map. Yes, I wanted a bit of revenge for my shit day yesterday.
I found the perfect mug to use while eating my
Vermont Cream Maple Nut Butter…I wonder if they sell them at Walmart?
Good news today for you also. Now that I got my fix, you should be safe from any other “sweet posts” for a while!
More people of Walmart…
Flames seem to be popular attire…
