So…CVS was out of my usual Lo-Carb (blue can) Monster, BUT they did have the White Zero Cal Zero Sugar one…which is also good. It tastes sweeter than the other, BUT the energy blend is cut in HALF. AND since they were buy 2 for $4….I figured I’d get two. Bwa ha ha…(I have a problem.) ;)
One is to substitute for my coffee this morning…and one is for the pre-drinking, hangover preventative at 2:00…..and of course, I grabbed a Redbull for Heather as well. (It sits tauntingly in the fridge as we SPEAK …er…READ…wahtever!)
I walk up to the counter…and I stand there for a few minutes, which is fine because there’s a sweet, old lady in front of me buying assorted items from her shopping cart..including Poise. (I had to include this, because I don’t care who you are…those are funny…to everyone….like a guy buying tampons.) **Snickers**
Of course, bless her heart, she forgot to have the cashier ring up her last bottle of water….so I’m standing behind her even longer, and at this point, my hands are past-the-point-of-freezing numb from holding onto three CHILLED energy drinks. I walk up to the counter finally, and the girl pointedly looks at me and asks,
I totally don’t understand what she means at first. (Blonde moment.) Did I look tired? Is it because I didn’t put makeup on yet? Am I slouching/yawning? What did I do to elicit that question???? Why has NOBODY told me that I have bags under my eyes and I look like some horribly disfigured-from-lack-of-sleep vagrant!!?? (Wait…I dont!)
And then I remembered what I was purchasing. THREE energy drinks!! OH!! Great….
Apparently, I looked like an energy-drink-abusive teenager. I quickly tell her that they are not all mine (As if she believes me at this point…isn’t that wht they always say?), and she smiles…and then the guy who had been waiting behind me pipes up,
“I was wondering that, too! Ha ha ha!”
Gee. Thanks, Guy.
The thought that I might look like some psychotic person due to my purchase never even occurred to me. I wonder how many times this has happened before…
Upside: I got to use my coupon for $1.50 CVSExtraBucks before they expired.
