You never know how exciting Target can be! Why just tonight I was standing there...

in front of the Cascade (which is on sale this week), wondering which flavor to get, when BLAM, not two or three feet from me, at the end of the aisle, a package of shoplight flourescent lightbulbs lands. Those fuckers explode when they fall from a great height. Fortunately, they were wrapped, so the glass stayed within a few inches of the crashsite. The sound was like a gunshot (almost). It plugged up my right ear for a while.

The thing is, is that the shoplight bulbs aren't in that area at all. They're not even in the same direction as where these seemed to fall from. The Target girls were super happy that I wasn't injured. Three more feet south, and I would be telling a different story.




I picked the lemon flavor.

Suppose that's one way to get you to see the light.

OK that was lame. geez, that is also weird.
I would have probably dove to the floor and hurt myself anyway.

You beat me to it discothequeLP!

I was going to say, "I'm glad you weren't the 'target' of a fluorescent lightbulb accident!"
Oh well.
Glad you're alive to tell about it!
