My trip to Walmart.

I see my friend as I'm walking in. I wave. I rush to the ATM to get a few hundred dollars out to get a money order to pay a bill. There is a short line. The guy in front of me is talking about a muscle builder he is taking to put on weight. I laugh to myself since the guy is only about 4'11 and probably as "stacked" as he can get. Get my money, go to the pharmacy to put in my son's prescription. Much to my delight, it's already been filled. Walk around for a bit, run in to my friend by pet supplies. We chat and look at dog brushes. One looks like a torture device so we try to figure out how it works. We don't. W say goodbye. I grab my toilet paper, go look at futons, go look at paint colors. As I'm walking over to get some salad I see a lady I went to high school with. She looks perfect, a size 2, so pretty. I feel fat. I notice a man checking her out. Like stopping and following her with his gaze. I feel even fatter. Grab a package of doughnuts. Pay, get money order, go to car, eat two doughnuts to drown my sorrow. Some little creep in the van next to me is staring. I glare and eat another doughnut. Fuck me, I just made myself fatter.

Love it.  And don't feel bad.  Something I often say to describe how overwhelmed I feel is, "So I gave up on trying that, and went home to eat a cupcake."

No fights? No mother screaming at her kids or not screaming at her kids and the kids are screaming at her?...so cuss outs at the register?...hmm, a normal shopping experience post. Rare.
