The 10 year old and I went “up the line” yesterday despite her disdain for shopping ( A girl that hates shopping!!??). With the promise of Newbury Comics thrown in, she willing went along with the trip to Trader Joe’s and TJ Maxx. Her mom had given her $10 and it was really cool how she made decisions on what to buy. So with a $4 purchase of pomegranate seeds (which she ate with chopsticks) and my $2 bag of Unburied Treasure (almost like cheese curls, but better), we did a little clothes shopping and then off in search of the now infamous Electronic Yodelling Pickle.
Kylie had never been to Newbury Comics before, but I talk about it often and she had $6 left to spend at this cool store. There was some adult stuff that I steered her away from, but she loved the Red Sox dog leashes and collars, checked the prices $15 each. No go.
We wandered through the store checking out the merchandise which is among the albums (yes, vinyl), CDs, and other music. This happy little guy caught our attention and Kylie thought they would be great for the puppy. Ha! More laundry for Mom!
We walked around the store 3 times, Kylie with the $6 in her hand and me in a futile search for the PICKLE!
She finally settled on a pack of chewing gum that snaps the fingers of your victim as they take a piece and a kit to grow snow??!!
I bought a ping pong set for the dining room table and asked the salesguy about the pickle. He said there had been a sell-out and more would be in in the next few days…WHA???? A secret sector of society pilfering pickles!
So while we wait we’ll place our bets on these guys-
It’s the brawl to end them all! Captain Corndog and Baron Von Broccoli will settle their ongoing feud once and for all in a knock-down, drag-out battle. The winner will become the undisputed feature dish of your kitchen! Next to the pickle….of course!
Have a great day!
