fuzzy, i know, but it had to be shown. oversized mocha frappucino in
hand, i went in search of q-tips. if one would think this is a simple
item, one would apparently be a blithering idiot. what confronted me was
this entire four-foot section, top of the shelf to bottom, of
multi-colored q-tips. red, purple, yellow, turqoise... what's the point
of all that? at the very least, it's a waste of dye, and the materials
used to make the dye. where's it going to go, besides the landfill, and
who demanded something other than white q-tips? oh, but when i went to
get a pack of razor blades, the simple two-sided kind which grandpas
everywhere have used since the dawn of time and which cost about a buck
fifty... oh no, they don't carry those anymore. now it's only "gillette
sensor eX-tr3me with 16 blades of raw shaving power!!!11!one!!" for like
$10 a pair. wal~mart retardance knows no bounds. i am angered that there
is now no place in this town to buy blades for my razor, and i have to
choose between driving thirty miles or being hairy.

wal~mart after midnight is only for the most steely of souls.
