ThePeach and TigerCat Make Exciting Purchases
TigerCat and I went to Shopper's DrugMart tonight. We had both had long days. TigerCat now has a desk job similiar to mine, so she too is learning the paradox of the exhaustions that come from sitting on your ass reading celebrity gossip online all day. Sometimes I also play 'bloons. That's a computer game where a monkey sits on this cloud and throws darts at ballons, and you only have a limited number of darts and the balloons sometimes contain special weapons like boomerangs and...holy sacred mother of balls. I am wasting my life. On celebrity gossip and 'bloons.
I loathe myself.
Anyway, TigerCat and I went to shopper's DM tonight after we mailed our mom an obligatory mother's day present. They didn't have any cards that said "Thanks to you I have 3 fathers and no sense of self worth" or "Every day I pray that crazy skips a generation", so I just sent her a potted plant.
So, TigerCat and I were standing in the checkout line at Shopper's, both of us exhausted and bleary eyed from a day full of 'bloons, when we had the following conversation:
TigerCat: *looks at the items in her basket* Jesus christ, I'm buying Q-Tips and a carton of milk? This is so fucking sad.
ThePeach: You're telling this to someone buying a 16-pack of toilet paper and a 99 cent can of salmon.
TigerCat: You win.
ThePeach: I do win.
Just another exciting night in my thrilling life.
