I should be shot

I did something wicked today. I'm ashamed of my actions, so I feel I must confess that I went to Wal-Mart this afternoon.

My swift punishment came in the form of women stricken with that classic deer in headlights look wandering down endless aisles of "Roll Back" values. Screaming children and thousands of product choices only added to my frazzled state of mind.

Jim helped as we frantically decided between about 35 varieties of baked beans, hamburger buns and various other items for our cookout tomorrow. (My dad and stepmother are coming up from Rome for the afternoon - very exciting!)

About an hour later we emerged from the "We Sell For Less" spectacle feeling dirty and shameful. But, by God, we probably saved a dollar - maybe TWO!
