A trip to the toy Aisle
It’s not that uncommon for my friends and I to spend a evening driving around town in search of awesome things at the plethora of general stores in the area. No matter how much we pretend that we’re going to look for things that adults should look at, like for instance a laptop or a ant poison, we usually end up spending the majority of our time hanging out in the toy department.
We don’t just spend time looking at toys. No, that would seem as though we were shopping for our kids or something. Nope, we like to go to the toy department and play with all the toys, especially the ones that make noises.
We like things that make noises.
I’m not sure what goes through the head of a cashier when we walk up carrying a handful of transformers and a fifth of cheap whiskey. I’m pretty sure after all of my years of being a cashier that anything I imagine would be way more interesting than whatever they were really thinking, which is probably something along the lines of, “Will these stupid jerks just go away so I can go back to pretending to clean this conveyor belt?”
It isn’t something we do every day. None of us can afford to spend that much time trying to convince ourselves not to waist more money on things that blink and hoot. There are times, though when you have to go out and play. No matter what life throws at you, taking the time to play seems to make some of the most dark and horrible things seem so much easier. Besides, how awesome do I look wearing a Thor helmet?
