Dirty Feet!


I have a theory, I believe that the greeters at Wal-Mart send the following subliminal messages:

For children (at least my child): Be naughty! You are the devil and this is your playground!

For adults: Next time, wear pajama bottoms.

Anyway, we were at Wal-Mart and my 4-year-old had taken the greeter's subliminal message literally. She was everywhere.....much to our delight....and ironically, she was in her pajamas.

Well, Big C and I ran into some friends and began chatting. At this time, Sassy began running wild circles around our legs--around and around she went. After a while, she realized that she was getting the feet on her pajamas dirty.

She said, "OH NO! Look at my feet! Their gusting! What am I going to do?"

Me smugly, "Well, I guess you need to ride in the cart now."

Sassy, looking horror-struck that she might have to get back into the dreaded cart, said, "Wait! I know!" She then proceeded to lay on her stomach, feet in the air, and started commando crawling across the floor.

Me, "Sassy, get up....get up...you are getting even more dirty!"

A lady happened to be walking by at this time and said, "Well, at least it isn't her feet anymore!" Of course, all our "good moments" are witnessed by at least one smirking stranger.

After pulling Sassy to her feet, she was unhappy to see that Ariel, on the front of her PJ's, had a dirt black-eye. She is learning that sometimes you just can't win.....

I don't think that your theory of the subliminal message to the kids is right - because satan actually OWNS and OPERATES the store - so he may be lending them HIS playground for a while - but they are only the devil's guests. And what, pray tell, is wrong with PJ's in Wally's world? I say if you have to go - you might as well be as comfortable as possible - hell, last time I checked, did not inforce a dress code.

One last thing - how come WE never get to run into you in that place? It would be one of the few things that would make the trip worthwhile. Call us next time you are heading out and we'll meet you PJ's and all.

The CSM called security to escort me outside when I commando-crawled in Wal-Mart! Kids get to have all the fun! >:(

What is it with Walmart and people wearing pajamas? Not Sassy, she's a kid, but grown adults. I saw a grown woman in Walmart in her tight pajamas that resembled long johns, if not for the cartoon characters all over them. I was thinking, "What the crap!" Definitely an interesting place to go on a Friday or Saturday night. That's when all the freaks come out. Good for some good cheap entertainment on date night.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't keep my kids in the cart and who causes scenes! :)
