I might have been exaggerating on the title of this post but nevertheless to say, that i am highly offended and the little trick pulled by Walgreen I had started out of curiosity to see how it feels to smell like cotton candy for a whole day by test spraying my dorm roommates cotton candy body spray. I liked it. It felt as if i had someone following me with a cotton candy maker everywhere i went. The only thing was; there wasn’t the sticky mess to deal with.
So imagine my meter of excitation when i walked into Walgreen to buy a box of what my friends consider stale crispy creme donuts and my eyes landed on a very pretty pink package with two cotton candy sprays in it; (Yes i fell for the product placement… Such a sucker lol). One was in an air spray can and the other was in a clear pink bottle and the price was $4.99. I was in cotton candy heaven.
I had this imagination that i was going to walk around tantalizing people and tempting people into looking for fairs, making people hungry and such… I bought it with a pep in my walk and a wicked grin. I was going to make my dieting friends go crazy. (Now this might not be an evil plan or imagination for others, but to my level of deviousness it was the ultimate “come hither, eat some cookies, or ice cream and break your diet plan“. Before i ramble on; it worked in the sense that i smelled delicious (literally). But then my friends were more tempted with the food present in front of them, verses me smelling like candy.
Back to Walgreen, Am sure by now you know i went and bought more and more and more. I asked my sister if she could smell me through out skype date, that i smelled delicious like cotton candy and she asked me to get one for her to try. (of course i am not that carzy not to know she couldn’t smell me. So save your comments on that one).
Now the horror. I went to buy some more at the beginning of the year and, regardless of whatever Walgreen i walked into it was never to be found.
Then i found it. Except this time it came in ONE medium sized clear bottle for DOUBLE THE PRICE. if you are exclaiming RIDICULOUS at this point then we understand each other well. I refused to buy it for months… and then Last week I CRACKED 😦 . I bought the bottle. I love it but i hate having to pay double for the same content.
Being that i hardly give up, i asked the cashier to show me to their secret stash of the old one. (I am not sure if i said this to her as a joke or if i meant it. I have moments like this lol). She laughed and said Walgreen decided to start carrying the expensive one. to which i belted out in the middle of the store “THE AUDACITY”, to every shoppers surprise lol.
I hate making scenes, i don’t like people who do, i avoid being in one but then i have moments when i just have to live and flap my hands around like a bird or penguin to say “I KNOW I AM QUITE, A HERMIT…. But LOOK I AM ALIVE AND AM HERE”
