Don't Cry for Me Green Giant

Something hysterical happened at Target yesterday. And I don't mean hysterically funny.

After waiting in line (for a long time) behind a nice, smiley woman wearing all denim, she started putting her items on the counter. Water, TP, standard Target purchases, and a knife through my heart...a Just for One Green Giant Broccoli and Cheddar.

I noticed immediately after that that she was not wearing a wedding ring, and she was about 50 years old.

Why, Oh Why, do they have to call it Just for One!?

Maybe because it's the holidays or maybe because I'm crazy, but the second I got in my car I burst into tears thinking about that lady.

Thinking about that denim loving lady eating a Just for One all by herself over the holidays was just too much to handle.

My husband tried to make me feel better by telling me she was probably either a career-minded woman who didn't want a husband, or a lesbian on a diet. I chose to believe him, but it hasn't been my experience in the past that woman who love their careers more than men also love wearing Canadian tuxedos.

Either way, I'm going to be kind to everyone this holiday season because you never know who could need a pick-me-up!
