Is It Just Me?

Or do the rest of you own WAY more size 3T shorts and underwear than t-shirts?

Is it just me?
Or are there other people who can calmly tell the man at Lowe's, "By the way, my child just peed on your floor. We're leaving now."

Is is just me?
Or do some of you know how to make your offspring sprint to the little boy clothes at Target and look for that little red sticker on the shorts tag. The one that says, "Yes, we may be a desperation purchase, but dadgummit, you're gonna get us for $1.98?"

Is it just me?
Or do you waffle when the choice is 8 pair of Target brand underwear (that you don't actually need at home) for $7.99, or 3 pair of Lightning McQueen underwear (a more reasonable number for an emergency purchase) for $6.99?

Is it just me?
Or have you ever stripped your child down in a parking lot on a 300 degree day to peel off diarrhea lightning McQueen underwear that you just bought?

Is it just me?
Or is there some question in other people's minds whether to bag up the brand new Lightning McQueen underwear or to just throw them in the trash?

Is it just me?
Or would the rest of you have pitched the trip across the parking lot to Costco to pick up the rest of your Wellbutrin prescription? After all, you do have 80 pills in your purse. Who cares if they still owe you about 10 more?

Is it just me?
Or have you been here, too?
Please tell me I'm not alone.

I'd have to buy the cheapies and throw them in the trash! Yuck.

That sounds like one heck of a day. Give that woman a Klondike bar!

You are not alone, my friend. Not alone. But mine was Lexapro, not Wellbutrin. And I got mine free...you know, drug reps love physician's offices and such. DON'T HATE ME!

"Fields of Gold"...sigh...reminds me of high school. Hard to believe this song is over 15 years old. But I digress...
