Down at the Wa!-Mart

Okay, so no one likes to hear me gripe about my husband. I guess it does sound pretty ungrateful to bitch about how someone else irons your clothes. So! On to happier topics! Stories From a Rural Wa!-Mart on a Sunday Night! (yes, we went to Wa!-Mart on Sunday night - this is what passes for excitement in my household.)

Rock and I were rummaging through the $5 movie bin and teasing each other about which awful movie we would buy to torture the other one with. He threatened me with The Core, which stars Aaron Eckart, my least favorite actor in Hollywood, and I threatened him with Lara Croft, Tomb Raider, because he hates Angelina Jolie (I KNOW! How can anyone hate ANGIE?). Anyway, we were holding up movies, trading barbs, throwing movies at one another and back into the bin. We debated on one movie, threw it back in, then decided to get it and couldn't find it. After a little while of this, a lady on the other side of the bin started cracking up laughing at us. We laughed and were a little embarrassed, but she was like, "It's so nice to see a couple laughing and having fun instead of arguing and fighting."

When we got to the register, we were behind a family of rednecks who were purchasing a camouflage cap. Somehow they got the idea to try to spell "camouflage". They made it through c-a-m-o alright, missed the "u" entirely and then stalled out on the spelling of "flage". They came up with "flag" and "flaug" as possibilities before giving up entirely.

Aaron Eckart is such a useless actor.

And you should have thrown a movie at that woman. She would have never seen it coming!

The Core! I have seen it! Not sure why that merited a comment, but there it is.

Mona, yes, he most certainly is. I cannot stand him.

LOL! That would have been hilarious. I thought about trying to include her, but short of dumping the whole bin of movies on her, there wasn't much way.

Shelly said...

Tessie - LOL! You sound like Rock. He called me this morning to tell me that Liev Schreiber, who was in a movie we watched last night, was in the Manchurian Candidate. I was like, "Yeah, I told you that last night. He's the assassin in the new one." He was like, "Oh."

Well...hate is a strong word but I don't care very much for Angelina Jolie. Not for the "She's a homewrecker" reasons...she just always seems kind of, oh, I don't know..unwashed or something. I hope I don't start a flamewar on your post.

Hey mrsgrumpy, you're fine by me. I love Angelina, but I understand that she's not everyone's cup of tea. And I'm always willing to respect the opinions of others.

i knew not everyone loved angelina.. but... but.. a DUDE? doesn't love her? now that's news :-)

i had no idea who aaron eckhart was until this post, when i was forced to look him up on imdb to figure out what you all were talking about. i.. guess i know who he is. i just can't seem to muster up the ability to care about him. heh.

Alice - my husband has some very odd ideas about attractiveness and lack thereof. He thinks that I am far and away more attractive than any Hollywood actress. Yes, I know, I'll never complain about him again.

See, that's the point! He's worthless! You can't even muster up an opinion about him.
