How I Changed My Summer

I'm sorry I've been neglecting my blogging, blah blah blah, you get the point.

I went to Smith's last Saturday to do my routine shopping. A couple of notes on Smith's. First of all, this Smith's plays the best music. It's not always music that I know, however it is always music that I cannot help dancing to. On one occasion, I recall rocking out to Dream Weaver in the 'Pop-Corn' Aisle. It's really high quality. Now I should clarify on how it makes me dance. The music in Old Navy makes me dance as well, but that usually wears off in about ten minutes. After that, I am in a terrible hell that I would not wish upon my worst enemy. Smith's, however, is a place where I could dance for an hour or more, never getting tired.

Another thing I love about Smith's is the produce section. When you are picking out your fresh greens and vegetables at the right time, you might just be able to catch a rainstorm right there in the store. There are thunder sound effects and the lights begin to flash, and then the misters unleash a heavy mist to keep your veggies fresh and crunchy. I love that. It's so theatrical and always puts a smile on my face. Now, I have heard it said, that when you are shopping in the meat section of the store, you can hear cows mooing in the distance, and can even catch the faint sound of their grazing in the fields. I have not witnessed this personally, however, if it is true, that is just one more item to add to my list of "Magnificent Things about My Smith's."

Well now to the point of my entry. I had received an tip from a friend that there were delicious (and large) popsicles on sale for 10 bags for $10.00. As I was passing the freezers during my shopping trip, I noticed the advertisement for this deal. I then proceeded to pile 10 bags of these Cherry-Mango popsicles into my cart. In each bag, there are 9 separate pops, so in total, I purchased 90 pops, for about 11 cents each. I steal, if you ask me. I mean these pops would sell for AT LEAST 50 cents at your neighborhood Ice Cream Truck. They are large, not those little dinky ones.

So my freezer is completely full of these popsicles, and let me tell you this. They are changing my summer. My goodness. I have four or five popsicles a day. It is such a refreshing treat after being the hot sun, or driving home in the hot car, or even cooking in the hot kitchen. Honestly, this is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I love these popsicles.
