Conversation with self at Walmart a few nights ago:
Oooooohhhh! These are pretty! So nice and soft and they got the New Orleans Saints logo all over them. Now that is just what I've been looking for.
Oh! No! Look! There's only two pair left and they are both extra small. I can't wear extra smalls. Whatever, can't they for once order too much in size 12/14. Half the women in this country are size 12/14 and yet you can never find something you want in that size. Oh well...
No wait, what is this? I found a large right here in the middle of the ugly pants rack. How great is that? They are mine now! Yes sir ree bob, I got me a pair of Saints pajama bottoms. Yep, they are soft and light weight, love, love, love them.
Twenty dollars for a pair of pajama bottoms? That's kinda pricey isn't it? Oh well, we just spent thirty-two dollars at Red Lobster, I guess I can afford these.
Now, sure as I get these, them Saints are going to start losing games. That's how it works. You buy the tee shirt and then they don't win another game that season.
Well who cares now, they won the Superbowl in February. Maybe they won't win this year, but I will at least have a comfortable pair of pajamas to wear. I'm getting them. I don't care. And besides I'm not superstitious. There you go PJ's into my basket you go.
Five minutes later and browsing two aisles over:
But WHAT IF they start to lose. Do I need them THAT bad? I'm gonna put them back. I cannot be responsible for the Saints losing this year. Back over to the rack to put them back.
About that time the husband walks up, "hey, whatcha got there?"
Well...I found these really cute Saints pajama bottoms but....
What's the problem he says, seeing the worried look on my face.
And then I just say to him what I would not say to anyone else in the whole wide world (with the exception of the Internet). If I get these, do you think it will make the Saints lose this year?
He just smiles. It's what he does when he wants to say, "your crazy".
I know. I've loved Jesus for a very long time. God spoke this world into existence and He orders the entire universe. He controls everything and it is not going to make a difference if I buy these pants or not! I am not superstitious, I am not superstitious.
Back into the basket they go and I quickly proceed to the checkout.
Listening to that familiar beep as the bar code passes over the scanner I'm thinking, "besides, they already lost their first pre-season game."
Was just wondering, have you ever found yourself having ridiculous conversations with yourself? Care to share them? (*smile*)
