Christmas Shopping in HotDish Hell, MN…

christmasshopperscoverThe greatest thing about the holidays is shopping. Especially if you’re a last minute holiday shopper like me. The people are filled with such holiday cheer they want to spread it about to all the other fellow shoppers.

It’s fun to scramble around a mall, with 2 million other people, sweat, have christmas music blaring in your eardrums, every entrance there’s some retired guy/gal clanging a high pitched bell, or some young person scratching that frayed bow across the strings of her viola. *scrittchhhh scritttchhh scratch…scritttchhhh scritttch scratch…scritch scritch scratch scritch scratch*

“Are you going to buy that item or are you just going to stand there and stare at it all day?”

“You want to move your *CENSORED*? There are others who have their *CENSORED* done and would like to go *CENSORED* home!”

“If it’s not on the shelves, we’re out of stock! No, i’m not going to go look to see if we have it in the back! Did you hear what i said? If it’s not out here we don’t have it!”

“Why don’t you go sit out on the benches with the other men and let the women shop!”

“Why is THAT guy in Hollister?”


“(sigh) Did you see it on the shelf? Then we don’t have it! Why don’t you shop somewhere else?”

“You’re lucky it’s Christmas, or i’d punch you right in the *CENSORED* face!!”


ah yes. Minnesota nice.

    My favorite part of the season is the parking! Oh, gosh, how I do live the parking. Especially driving around for an hour, needing to buy that last gift when, there, in the middle of the lot, you spot it…the last spot. Gah! You drive like you’ve never driven before. You hope a producer of The Fast and the Furious sees you so he would hire you for the next installment of the franchise. You weave in and out, nearly miss an old lady carrying bags to her car. You almost clip another car and…there you make it. You appear at the other end of the row, where the spot lies. You jet. But you didn’t realize another car saw it first. It plows to the spot before you. What do you do? You pass by the former empty spot, frowning. Yeah, ya gotta love this season!!!
