My husband phones me on my cell and says, "I'm at Sam's Club. Do you need anything?"
"Cheese sticks and lunch meat."
"Do you need anything else?"
:insert non-pregnant pause:
"I can't think of anything."
"If you do, give me a call back."
Suddenly, the thought comes to my mind. I call Hubs and say, "Give me a call when you get to the feminine products aisle."
"I'm in the feminine products aisle."
"Good! Do they have Tampax Pearl?"
I go on to continue with the remainder of the make, model and serial number.
"Yep. They have it. They actually have both."
"I have Always," he says.
"I have wings."
"I'm not a big fan of wings, but I can do it. How much?"
He told me and I can't recall, but I think it was $13.00 or so for 60.
"Don't worry about it. I can get those elsewhere."
"Oh, wait! I have Always Maxi! They are $7.48."
"Uh, no. I don't need to feel diapered."
:insert husband laugh:
My husband walked away with two 96 count boxes of tampons for me. What a man. Considering that I'm 38 and still have a ways to go with this, I'm thinking that 192 tampons should last me for a while.
"Do we need Purell?" he asked.
"I think so."
"Ooo! Go on down to the vitamins and look for K-'s vitamins."
"Gummy, gummy, gummy, gummy . . . "
"Nope. No gummy. She would have to take two and that doesn't save money. Just look for the average chewable."
"Yes! How much?"
It was $13+ and I wasn't willing to pay that much.
"Forget that. I'll get them somewhere else. Can you check Calcium with D for me?"
"I have a bottle of 300 for $12.00."
"Well, I just bought a bottle of 60 for $3.99, so that is good."
"Wait! I just found a bottle! It's a bigger bottle! It's 600 for $7.48!"
"What about prenatal vitamins?" (Again, not pregnant, but I do take prenatals as they have the extra vitamins I need to balance the blood clotting disorders.)
"Centrum, but no prenatal."
"No. Forget it. Need the extra vitamins. I'm good."
"I'm glad that I called back," said Hubs probably relieved that our marathon phone shopping session in the H&BA aisle of Sam's was done.
What a sport.
Smiles in my day:
- Getting Hubs hooked on Storage Wars.
- Catching the last 15 minutes of Along Came Polly with Hubs.
Have a great day!
