I was in Long's Drugstore yesterday, trying to buy a cheapo pair of flip flops for my walk on the beach. I went to the aisle where I'd seen them, and it had been cleaned out! No flip flops in sight. Instead, there were almost empty shelves, with great big cardboard boxes piled high in the middle of the floor.
You guessed it. Binders, Pee Chee folders, pens, pencils, filler paper, gel markers...
Not even the middle of July and already with the school stuff.
My local department store is having an "end of summer" clearance sale.
Excuse me, isn't the end of summer in September? What is going on? And then, of course, the Christmas sales start up in October.
I just want to relax, visit with friends, drink wine, and not worry about anything.
Including if I have a pencil case for my three ring binder.
