A wise person once said;
And I am not one who ignores wise people. So I am usually myself (although some people might sometimes wish I wasn’t) at all times. But today, as I was shopping at Wallmart, I happened to go through the impressive Halloween department, and an opportunity showed up!
I enjoy entertaining people, especially when they don’t know me, and I must say, I get an extra kick out of making Chéri uncomfortable with my silliness. I would bet he already knew he was in trouble when I spotted the display of different mascot heads. There were cats, wolves, bears, and suddenly I spotted it!
I doubt it surprised him, but he still couldn’t supress the ‘please just shoot me’ look in his eyes, when I put the unicorn head on, and said;
Take a picture!!
I was nice, though. I didn’t buy it. I didn’t even try!
I kept looking through the different costumes available… And I had a thought for the Master of Bitterness. Ok, I know Ben would probably not consider dressing up for Halloween, but if he ever did, I bet this would be the perfect costume he could get!
I know what you are thinking… How would it be possible to find an equally delicious-looking AND silhouette-flattering matching costume for Bitter Ben’s lovely wife?? Search no more, I did my homework, and here it is…
The rest of my shopping was quite boring and not worth any mention (or picture). By the time we exited the store, Chéri was again oblivious to the risk of me having another embarassing picture-taking episode.
But you know Murphy, and his laws are not to be taken lightly!
In the parking lot, something on the asphalt caught my eye, and when Chéri looked back, I was already kneeling down to take an even odder picture!
Not getting it, uh? Well, Suzanne from MyDangBlog will for sure, and you can catch up with the inside joke by reading her hilarious post here. (People do floss in the strangest places!!)
On a completely different subject, I just wanted to mention a couple of new things in The Cove…
First of all, although I’ve been very quiet on Twitter lately (Sorry Tweeters, I’ll be back soon, I promise) I have started working on developping my Instagram account. Most of the pictures I post there don’t get published on my blog, not to bore people who ‘follow’ me on both platforms. You are welcome to pay me a visit there, as I added a link in my sidebar.
I have also ‘opened’ an online boutique on RedBubble. It is not top notch just yet, but it is a start, and if you’d like to have a look and leave me a little note, you can find me here. I don’t have much hope for that project, but I thought I’d give it try anyway, for the fun of it! I’ll keep adding pictures as time goes on… Who knows? Some people might get interested…
Finally, good news! I have had our lottery ticket checked, and we won 22$!! Woot woot! Ok, not even close to being able to change anyone’s life, but still. The jackpot hasn’t been won, meaning we’ll still have a shot at the 60 million this coming Friday. Keep them fingers crossed, hehehehehehe.
Well, that’s about it. I hope you guys are having a lovely beginning of the new week!
