*JUST FOR LELLY!

"Going to the store"
Poor Lelly, she must think that all we do on this side of the pond is "go to the store." I mean, Jade and I discuss our favorite movies, and Jade's gotta go to the store.

A long long l-o-n-g story short -- (and edited).....

"Going to the store" came out of cyberque one:
an intelligent discussion, begun, I believe, by Jag, speculated on a future cashless society. Different modes of "cashless" were explored, moving from paying via debit cards, to body implants, to DNA...

But how to get DNA?

This is where discussion when straight to the gutter...and all the men volunteered to do the shopping forever!

Thus, when a dazed look comes over their face, they have, in essence, "gone to the store."

SSM, does that about sum (so to speak) it up?

(with glazed look on face): huh? sorry. i had to get some, uh, toilet paper. yeah, toilet paper.

jade ed girl said...

Ummm...errr...I've NO IDEA what you're talking about... I really had to run out to the store. I saw your post about JD and remembered...ummm...remembered... errrr... that I needed... cat food! Yeah that's it!

Everybody needs to be listening to "Dazed & Confused" about now... perhaps SSM can do an interpretive fire-dance to it illuminating the essence and true significance of "gone to the store."

--I went to the store TWICE today...
thank God I didn't have to return anything....

:-)
p.s. memo to SSM: Kleenex. NOT toilet paper. Kleenex.

dance monkey boy, dance.

Lelly said...

Well thanks APj...your post and the subsequent comments makes it all so much clearer...NOT.
I'm now even more convinced that 'going to the store' means going to wherever you've store(d) your stash! :-)

airplanejayne said...

okay....
what do you call sex, if you're by yourself?


EXACTLY!!!!!!

Lelly said...

EXACTLY???!!!...and you've been TWICE today??? And Jade 'goes' while your DISCUSSING favourite films? And it involves PIZZA???!!! I wish you'd left me in blissful ignorance!

airplanejayne said...

kleenex, dahling....kleenex.

blitheringblogs said...

here goes my first posting on APJ's site.....


erm... I don't know whats going on.

but hello anyway!

kien lim said...

Errrrhhh!

airplanejayne said...

kien,
i'm a bit confused....what kind of sound is "errhhhh?"

happy sound?
mad sound?
"oh you stupid americans" sound?

or...are you just going to the store!?!?!?!?

airplanejayne said...

blith,
welcome!
if you don't know what's going on....you are in fine company.

--because none of us know what is going on....

I have to leave now -- going to the store!

jade ed girl said...

Look what you've done now bear-poker! :)

Just to clear the record- never gone to the store while talking to APj or while eating pizza. Repeated references to Johnny Depp, however, may inspire a bit of shopping:)

Welcome, Blith!

airplanejayne said...

Okay, while we're all coming clean...oh, strike that line...

I also have never gone to the store while eating pizza, but I've gone to the store while talking to APj..

sincerely,
APj, the bear poker....
which is not to be confused with the
bare poker.

:-)

How would coupons figure into this? And for that matter, what about Dollar Tree? And where would be put the barcode thingy? And would there be an express lane, and a how would you "quantify" 15 "items" or less?

I am confused...

Lelly said...

Look, I only mentioned pizza cos you two did APJ and Jade in your comments on lecram's post about the green fairy! I quote:

airplanejayne said...
okay Lecram,
all that prose SOUNDS good...
until I realize that
1) everything is on top of a pizza box.
and
2) The look on SSM face (and yours) tell me that BOTH of you went to the store!

jade ed girl said...
Oh God I hope not! I ate that pizza...

...and THAT'S when I asked what 'going to the store' really meant, kicking off this whole discussion! I'll leave the bear alone in future! :-)

Lelly said...

Oooo Jade! Only just realised that by'JD' you mean Johnny Depp and not Joel Dyer!!! LOL! And there's me thinking you two maybe had a thing going on...look very 'together' in the fire -dancing pic!

jade ed girl said...

Oh, well that JD does have a nice tushy.

airplanejayne said...

jade -
don't poke the bear.
:-}
(but I've got bandaids if ya' just can't stop yourself)

jade ed girl said...

That's not bear-poking! I beleive it's referred to as Squirrel Biffing:)

scarysquirrelman said...

kleenex?! ha! double ply, squishy, extra absorbent, Southern Exposure brand if you please. when i go to the store i shop like there's no tomorrow. in fact, many a "cashier" has commented that i must be one of those "mystery shoppers" who get to keep it all in exchange for an honest critique. and my coupons get me "frequent shopper" miles.
