And here I thought life was going in the direction of Non-Weird Things … Alas friends! QT was yet again, wrong wrong wrong.
Here I was in the grocery store, in the third to last aisle, thinking I had made it through the store without incident! Wrong. Again.
I was in the aisle of detergents, from laundry to sink to toilet, looking at some of the FeBreeze Candles when I hear a voice say, “Excuse me young lady …” I turn around to see a very small, well dressed older (okay really old) lady standing there.
She smiles and says, “Can you help me? I’m looking for the tabs you drop in the back of your toilet tank to make the water blue. I can’t find my glasses though, and I’m afraid I can’t see up high on the shelves.”
I smile at this nice old lady, and what do I see on the top of her head? Her glasses. I grinned at her and said, “Sure! Let’s see here …” and start looking for the tablet things that make your water blue.
After finding them for her, she thanks me and proceeds to explain to me that they just got a new toilet, and asks me if I’ve heard of it before, this particular toilet. I kinda blinked, smiled again, and told her no, I hadn’t heard of that toilet. And as we walked down the grocery shopping aisle together, her pushing her cart and me pushing mine, she explained to me the new inner workings of her new toilet, which had, she said, a very very powerful flush. I was nodding along to her description of the toilet, when she smiled and said,
“My husband takes very large shits, you see. He is constipated all the time and … “
I stopped walking with her.
Really? I mean, really? Yup. Really.
