Dollar Store Madness

6 Apr

This cannot be good.

I used to take my nephew (though now he’s in his 20’s) to the dollar store and let him run wild and pick out, like, 158-thousand items for about $6.10, mostly breakable toys and snacks galore and he’d leave thinking that he’d hit some sorta kid lottery. Squirt guns were my his favorite.

So I’ve been a dollar store head for quite some time. Of course I don’t go there to buy anything serious; just snacks or really cheap napkins or tissue paper for my art sales.

But honey the dollar store has changed, I say.

They now have these:

Oy. Oy. Oy.

I can’t take it. It’s too much.

I find it hard to drive past a Dollar Tree without my mouth watering for an Edward’s Key Lime Tastebud Extravaganza. All for a dollar plus tax. Serotonin and endorphins running freely through fields of sugar induced fat grams.

It’s a mess.

I need key lime therapy.
