Becoming a cliche'

While standing on line at Duane Read this afternoon, I just happened to look down at the items I picked up to purchase. In my arms was a bag of dark chocolate Hershey's Kisses, a bag of Mint Chocolate M&M's, a $.99 cent bag of Frito's and a package of maxi pads. At that moment I was horrified to find that I had become a cliche'!

I put back the M&M's and the Frito's. I kept the Hershey Kisses and of course, the maxi pads...which was the item I went there to shop for in the first place. I shared the Kisses with my staff though..... so as not to consume them all myself.

Perhaps this is sharing a little too much information, but hell, who really cares anyway. I thought it was rather funny at the time.

That is so funny! I can completely relate. Lately, when I go to the pharmacy or supermarket, I pretend that the cashier is instead my running coach, and imagine his expression when he sees what I buy. So far it's working out well! The problem is the stuff that I DONT buy myself but is around in the office or at home! Nice work putting that candy and chips back!
