Sunday whilst at W.almart I decided that I should start my Christmas shopping. So I moseyed on back to the bike department and picked out the cutest little bike for Lovegirl. Rolled it over to the layaway department, paid $25 and patted myself on the back for a job well done.
Got home and told Smoochy what I’d done.
Smoochy: Why did you put the bike in layaway?
Nerd Girl: So we’d have somewhere to store it until Christmas. Duh.
Smoochy: How much was the bike?
Nerd Girl: $50. I paid $25.
Smoochy: Fifty dollars?!? You put a fifty dollar bike in layaway?!? And paid for half of it? Why?
Nerd Girl: I just told you, so we’d have somewhere to store it until Christmas.
Smoochy: When do you have to get it out?
Nerd Girl: December 16.
Smoochy: And where are we going to put it from then until Christmas?
Nerd Girl: Your dad’s.
Smoochy: So really, you just wanted to put something in layaway.
Nerd Girl: Yep.
The only other thing I’d ever put on layaway was a couple of outfits from H.ollidays (remember them?) when I was in college. By the time I got them out two or three paychecks after I’d put them in, I didn’t even like what I’d chosen and got a refund. I just wanted layaway success in my life and thanks to Lovegirl’s bicycle, I’ve got it!
