Attention shoppers, there is a limited time deal on beans....

Friday, 2 July 2010 - Attention Walmart Shoppers...  there is a special today on cat chow and ammunition. Do you ever have one of those days when you wake up, shower, get dressed, head out the door and then accidentally catch your likeness in a pane of glass on the way in to the office tower? You know those days when you were pretty sure you looked better when you left the house than when you arrived at work... only to discover that your own mirror may have you deceived.  It's not a full on full length mirror crisis, but it does trigger full on reflection reflection.  Which reflection is accurate?  Odds are the one you saw when you left the house is the better bet.  Is it double or  triple-pane glass? That reflection could then be a merged view of two or three images. 

No matter how bad a day I might be having about what I've put on to be in public, or what I saw as I passed by the Holt Renfrew display windows... there is a web site that can always lift my spirits.  I'm sure the emails have made it in to you inbox once in a while, but folks, let me just say this once... if you have doubts whether or not the outfit is fit for public consumption, it probably isn't. Just take a short visit to Sorted by state, there are a few states that are more frightening than others, but here in Washington, there is plenty people of Walmart to give you the willies enough to check all reflections you come across just to be sure you are not website material.

Sam Walton probably had no idea what was to come when he opened the first Walmart on this day in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas.  However, that being said, check out the Arkansas state pictures.  They have got to be some of the best.  Maybe he not only knew what was to come, but could appreciate the retail genious of giving all those folks who do not get dressed up enough for a trip to the Big K somewhere to congregate, buy ammunition and stock up on cat food and baked beans.

When the weather warms up, the same folks you'll find at Walmart will be invading our beaches and parks... in wife beaters and bathing suits no doubt.  They will pack up picnic lunches with all the good sandwich fixins and beans they could carry.  But in keeping with a theme, July is Baked Beans Month.  I bet there will be a few great specials in the canned goods aisles.  Shop on.  Just, wear shoes, a shirt that fits, and pants that, at the bare minimum, cover your glutes.  And please please please check for skid marks.  Thank you for shopping at Walmart, and have a nice day.
