Retail Delights

So I recently got my first retail job. After a week, I was completely convinced that there was nothing redeeming about working retail.

But then he showed up.

Gary Coleman. In my store. At my cash register. Buying a walking stick that looked like a telescoping ski pole.

So what if I can't ever remember watching his television show?

He paid with a card, meaning I had his autograph for about 10 seconds until I had to put the sales slip on the peg with the rest of my card slips. Oh well.

I'm hoping that next week I'll see Fred Savage or maybe that kid from Growing Pains. A girl can always hope, right?

Under the Table

I would like to introduce you all to a new sport. It's called Tabling. (Table-ing.) Think bouldering only with the furniture in your living room instead of actual rocks. The goal is to begin on top of the table, climb all the way underneath and get back up the other side without ever touching the ground. It's gonna be the next big thing, I'm sure of it. Next time you find yourself with nothing to do and a sturdy kitchen table...give it a shot! What have you got to lose?
