Cash Credit or Soup

blouse: Nordstrom (50%off !) trousers: Anthropologie (70%off!)

When it starts to get to finals week my brain starts to go all hay wire. I can't explain it really, it's like all rational thoughts exit la cabeza and some frizzy haired screechy voiced weirdo takes over. So yesterday, I'm at the bookstore checking out. The clerk lady kindly says  ,"your total is one million dollars." or some number close to that. And you know what I did? I'll tell you what I did. I reached into my backpack, right past my wallet and pulled out a container of soup that I had brought from home for lunch. I then opened it....at the cash register...mmm chicken and dumpling aroma. All of the sudden I realized what I'd done. I looked at the line behind me and thought about what excuse I'd use, " Sorry guys I'm an idiot and mistaked this here bowl of soup for my wallet....it was an honest mistake." I thought maybe I'd say, "Finals brain...it gets me every time." but instead the clerk just stared at me all wide eyed and I slowly put the lid back on my soup, put it back in my backpack and grabbed my wallet. I then whispered under my breath, "I have no idea why I just did that." She looked at me sympathetically like, "Poor schmuck." and then I kindly scooted my butt out of there.

Whenever something weird like that happens I think, " Meh I can't get much weirder than that." But then I go and do something like this and shock myself all over again. Finals be gone so I can get my regular brain back please!!

Who tries to pay a clerk in soup?? Who I ask you who??!!

  17. I like soup. I could be paid in soup. Not all the time though, that would get boring, sometimes I would like to be paid in spaghetti bolognese.

    BTW this laughing is occurring in my cube at work. People are used to it by now though.
