Girly rant, please forgive me


Ok, since Drex did a rant, I’m going to…except mine is no where near as important as his is (and it’s kind of girly).

He already mentioned the fact that we’ve been trying out different flavored lip glosses and stuffs which has been fun, but the acquiring of said lip gloss was irritating in the least. I asked Drex for flavor requests before I went to the store and figured that I would be able to find whatever he asked for in the lipsmackers section of Target. Silly Salad, this is Utah where there’s no selection for anything if it doesn’t relate to the Church :P I searched in vain and couldn’t even find one of the five flavors requested, so I headed to Walmart thinking, “It’s Walmart…they have everything!” Again I was sorely disappointed and getting really ticked off. I was able to find some substitute flavors, but I couldn't figure out why the selection was so crappy and why I couldn’t find what I was looking for when I’d never had any problems before; and then it dawned on me: I grew up really close to the Bonne Bell factory (makers of lipsmackers) and therefore was privileged to have a wide selection to chose from; everything from Cherry Coke to just plain Strawberry, from Mocha to Pina Colada. I still have some friends at home, though my parents have moved, so I called my best friend’s mom and asked for a favor, “will you please find me these flavors and send them to me??” Thank goodness for the amazing mother of my best friend…we will soon have some new flavors to try out ;) But I’m still bitter about the lack of selection here

Ok, there’s my rant. I’ll try and have a substantive post in the near future, assuming my brain doesn’t turn in to scrambled eggs in the next week or so.

Hmmmm, I'm thinking that I'm thinking that I've got a great idea for something! Hooray! This is going to me so much fun! Ha ha ha! What flavors were you looking for?

You're completely forgiven. That's the kind mistake that anybody would make.

fruit punch, chocolate, pina colada, strawberry daquiri, and bubble gum (but let's be honest...bubble gum???)

I'm a huge fan of lime and pink lemonade too ;)

Stephen: I'm glad to know that I've been forgiven for being a girl ;)

Stephen said...

Oh, no no no. The forgiveness was entirely for the lipstick thing. You still have to do twenty years hard labor for being a girl! ;)

that's it...the baseball bat is coming out and you're going to get beaten with it :P

I maintain that if kissing is as much like a dentist's office like you guys are making it out to be (bad choice of words just now), then...well, that's weird. Behhh. Whatever.

salad said...

it only sounds clinical because I leave out all the "good" details...but I'm sure as h*** not going to put those in.

Your fabulous friend's fabulous mom went to Drugmart and CVS and still couldn't find the flavors you were looking for :(
