Have you ever gone to a store for one thing, but they didn’t have that thing, so you decide to buy everything else that looks good instead?
I went to Barnes & Noble this weekend and ended up in a shopping fugue. The upside is that I now have a new addition to my list of coolest things I’ve ever bought:
Listography. After all my top five lists, it should come as no surprise that it was love at first sight when I came across this gem in the book store.
- LUSH jelly soap. Strange but true, trying to shower using a handful of soap with the consistency of gelatin is some of the most fun you can have for $6.
- Fake mustaches from a gumball machine. The whole experience; from seeing the gumball machine full of mustaches, to waiting to see which one you get, to wearing a terrible adhesive mustache for the rest of the day, is so awesomely surreal that you’d never guess it only costs a quarter.
- My own set of colored pencils that no children are allowed to use, regardless of what coloring emergencies may arise.
- The Unicorn Head Mask. Mr. B ordered a unicorn mask just before Halloween on a whim, and we have had so much fun with this thing, I can’t even. We’ve jumped out at each other, snuck up on each other, and hidden it in every conceivable place in the house. It is all things wonderful and frightening, all at the same time.
