Adventures in Wal-Mart Land

This is an actual conversation I had with my son via text this morning. It is my take on my adventure in Wal-Mart this morning.

ME: It’s standing in the middle of the aisle and not let anyone by day at Wally World!

SON: lol

ME: Don’t even bother to go down the chip aisle! You’ll never be seen again!

SON: lol

ME: Watch out for your toes! Those little old ladies are on the warpath!

SON: lol (he’s a boy of few words, can you tell?)

ME: And if you put your stuff on the checkout line before they are done, the men will throw your stuff to the ground and burn it with their dragon fire breath.

SON: lol

ME: That last one is close to the truth! Some guy bit my head off when I started to put my stuff down!

SON: wow

ME: My arms were cramping so I started to put the stuff down. He snapped “I’m not done yet!” so I picked everything up. I was in an express checkout. He put two items up there. I stood there holding everything until he walked away.

SON: wow

ME: And if you survive the parking lot minefield, a Wal-Mart associate will greet you at the end of the gauntlet, give you a smiley face sticker and say “Ya’ll come back now, ya hear!”

SON: lol

Thus endeth ‘Adventures in Wal-Mart Land’ for today. I do hope you enjoyed the trip and got a few laughs. 🙂


I have always loved to read, and carry a book with me wherever I go. I’ve written for several online sites, doing book reviews and author interviews. After graduating in 2000 from West Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s degree, I was a teacher for a while before deciding my destiny was to write, not to mold young minds. Writing for me is like taking an exciting journey, or going on a welty, as my parents say. I don’t know where my stories are going to take me. I just hang on and enjoy the ride.
