To discuss store sightings, from placentas to Paris

I've embarrassed Capricorn a time or two since we started dating by taking camera phone photos at various places for my blog. I told her it comes with the territory. There's comedy gold to be had... even in a hair and beauty supply store.

As Capricorn perused the fake eyelashes, I perused the aisles. I got asked four times by sales clerks if I needed help. They must've thought I was lost. But look what I found:

Yes, dear.
Those are the things you will normally see in 'girlie places'.
I've seen lots more. Keep taking pics of anything all the time. My kids make this sound when they see me pulling out my phone to take a pic of something.
My oldest (Dom) will actually run back to a previous location just to get a pic.

Iced Pomeranian?! That's too much...did the other girl correct her? And were you able to keep from laughing?

I believe in using my camera phone at any given opportunity. That's why they're on the phone, right???

The placenta dye was a bit much - sure, if you live in India its kind of a must, but cant Western women just use L'Oreal ?

You make me feel okay about the 15 minutes I spent this weekend trying to covertly get a picture of a cake at the grocery store to submit to Cake Wrecks.

FYI - I need a better camera phone.

Mmmm... delicious placenta. Nothing makes my skin glow like the afterbirth.

Camera phones have revolutionised the way we tell anecdotes. Gone are the days where we have to finish with "You had to be there!". Now we can gain photographic evidence!

I've heard good things about that iced Pomeranian cream.

Andy said...

Sheila- That makes me feel better.
Maegan- Exactly. And I love your profile photo.
Bianca- I don't think the customer quite heard her. I had to stifle a laugh. Capricorn was convinced we were going to get kicked out.
Amy- Because afterbirth is grrrRREEAT!
Dani- Cake Wreck is such a good site. I greatly enjoy baked catastrophes.
Aine- I think it increases virility too.
Astharis- It also has made it impossible for celebrities to exit a vehicle without some yahoo taking a photo of their ladyparts.
Jest- It's a bit furry, but goes on smooth.

Please stop shopping whereever you're currently shopping. Kthx.

Hahaha, it's good to know I'm not the only one that loves being a tourist in hair emporia. It works better for me though because I have the foreign accent...

Did they also have giant bamboo-shaped earrings for $2?

; )

also:
word ver: defetype - when your editor metaphorically pisses all over your article by rewriting a lot of it.

the placenta thing is making me ill. Someone should alert Tom Cruise.

stealthnerd said...

Looks like you had a good weekend haha!

Far said...

what did you do spend a day at Sally's Beauty Supply?? LOL

hautepocket said...

Hmm..This is timely because I just snapped a photo today in Rite Aid of the Scariest Christmas Toy Ever.

Isn't the point of the camera phone to be able to inconspicuously snap photos wherever you may find yourself? I think camera phones might be the Bloggers best friend. You know, besides the internet of course..

Erin said...

Placenta can come in super strength??

Emily Jo said...

I'm with Ben... you are shopping at a weird ass place and I'd recommend not going back there. Ever. That stuff creeps me out!

JenBun said...

There is always some scary shit in the beauty supply place!

This is hilarious. :D
