More Fun at Target


Chad and I were in Target today. (Legitimate mission. Chad needed something -- in fact, it was his idea to go there. All I got was a Pepsi.)

ANYWAY, I spotted her again. The plain-clothes cop. Except she saw me looking at her, which was kind of embarrassing. I just think her job would be so cool. Getting paid to walk around Target all day and occasionally wrestling some punk to the ground. There are worse ways to spend your day.

My favorite recent Target purchase: Matching T-shirts for the girls that say, "Everyone Loves a Blue-Eyed Girl." They have the brown-eyed version, too, for you people like Carol who have brown-eyed girls.

That just reminded me. The other day Julia and I were talking about different eye colors and I started singing "Don't it make my brown eyes blue..." She said, "That's not correct grammar."

    Really, though we have given you a hard time, you don't have to defend your Target trips! :) So do you think she can actually shop on the job? How fun would that be...to get paid to shop at Target all day!

    I am happy to see that you have better sense about appropriate phrases for children's t-shirts. I've been offended by words on children's t-shirts at school lately. No it isn't slang or ads for beer.
    One little 9 year old's shirt looked like a UPS brown shirt and had words above the UPS logo that said "I ignore grown..." UPS. I told him it wasn't a nice shirt to wear to school where we are trying to get the students to pay attention to the grown ups. Another one I saw just today looked like one of those "Hello! My name is..." nametags. His name, appearing like a magic marker written word, was "Trouble". So the tag read, "Hello! My name is Trouble and don't make me prove it." Sweet isn't it? One of my major behavior problems was getting real joy out of repeating that phrase over and over. I made the boy turn his shirt inside out. There are a lot of those kind of t-shirts and worse on kids at school that I believe just adds to the growing disrespect that the children are showing to teachers in schools. I think that some parents think that it is cute for their kids to wear such rude comments on their clothes. As a teacher, I don't think its cute...it is down right rude.

    Sorry I didn't mean to blog on your blog.

    My settings keep reverting back to "moderate comments" so I'm posting this to see if it's working yet.

    I think Julia recognized improper grammar because of all the wonderful, big books she has been reading!

    Hope to see all of you next week when I return home!

    Dude, Luella stuff is starting to go on Clearance! How amazing! I went to Target to avoid a storm in the trailer haha. Anywho...I'll blog about all my fun findings later.

    It would have been funnier if she had said, "That ain't correct grammar." Tee hee hee.

    You should be singing "Brown - eyed girl" by CCR instead. One of my favorites since I am a BEG and the blue-eyeds always got the attention. I have one of each!

    Carrie, I love that song! I have the Van Morrison version, though.

    Well? Why don't you go to the academy and become a cop? Might be fun. And most agencies are looking for women cops. They get some kind of government grants or something for hiring women. Just an idea since it looked cool to you. I personally like my somewhat safer job as a dispatcher. ; )

    And hey! Tell Julia that you don't have to sing using correct grammar as long as you sound GOOD doing it. ; )

    Question for all Target people... If you order something on-line and it comes and is missing something, can you take it back to the store or do you have to go through the whole shipping/return mess. Sorry, but I have a feeling someone here may know! :)

    SG -- I like being in the actual store so much that I never order anything online. :)

    I bet your local store can tell you, though.

    Our Target finally opened and I went today. It would be worth the drive from Baytown - brand spankin new with Starbucks and Pizza Hut inside.
    I couldn't resist the Brown-eyed-girl t-shirts for my three brown-eyed girls. Wonder if they come in my size too?
