I have come to the conclusion that Wednesday is White Trash Wednesday at the local grocery store. I really felt out of place yesterday at the store. I think it was because I was not wearing sweat pants.
I swear that 75% of the people walking through the store were wearing sweatpants. I have a simple rule in life. Sweatpants are worn 1) around the house, 2) while running outside, 3) when waking up at camping but only for the time it takes to have your morning beer or coffee if you prefer and get cleaned up, and 4) any time while driving when you know you are not going to be entering any public facility (e.g. you drive from your house to parents house to drop off kid or to hit a drive thru).
Do not wear sweat pants in public. It is disgusting. Mostly because the people that wear sps (knew word Gambino?) in public look like they have given up on life. They look shoddy, hair disheveled, can't even afford a hat. It is a sloppy look. Kinda like their teeth usually but I ain't going there.
Perfect example yesterday was SPS Couple. Looked to be the perfect White Trash Sweat Pants Wearing Straight From The Trailer Park Couple. I had bumped into WTSPWSFTTPC yesterday in two aisles. They were oblivious to anyone around them, taking up the whole aisle between them and their cart. The only thing they may have been missing was a snot nosed kid running around trying to put candy in the cart. But both were wearing dirty looking sweatpants with the guy wearing a yellow shirt. Problem was the shirt was white at one time. Needless to say the dude did have a mullet to boot! I told you it was the perfect example.
What may have cracked me up the most about this WTSPWSFTTPC was when I ran into them in by the freezers. They were buying ice cream. Both of them had their faces inside the freezers searching for the perfect flavor. They were searching deep into the back, thinking that maybe they would make a discovery like Indiana Jones. I watched as mullet man dug through the expensive ice cream (yeah right buddy) while mrs. moved over to the cheap stuff and proudly exclaimed she was buying the chocolate because she can get two of them for the price of just the one he was looking at.
Ah, the simple things in life that WTSPWSFTTPC like. I bet they had a better time at the store than I did. I couldn't find anything interesting to eat. I am having eaters block. I seem to be in a rut when making meals lately. Thankfully grilling season is starting but even the cuts of meat were boring to me yesterday. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
I may head out for some big mouths tonight. Who is up?
I have another rant I need to get out of my system. All about riding a bicycle and why people feel the need to wear helmets. I just don't get it. I see these people on the bike trails and all these doofuses (or is that doofi?) are wearing helmets. I can maybe understand why kids are wearing them (mom makes them) but when I see a grown man wearing one and is puttering along, it cracks me up. Ok, if you are riding on the road next to gravel and cars, then a helmet does make sense. But not on a bike path.
Do they expect to suddenly lose control and head right into a tree? Maybe a head on collision with another biker? I haven't fallen off a bike in years. A statement that is true since I did fall about 3 or 4 years ago. A nasty spill that split open my elbow, a nasty looking gash that bruised the bone pretty good that I probably should have gotten stitches for but didn't. Skun the knee pretty good too when I hit a mossy area on the trail on a curve. A helmet would have done me no good.
No way would my kids wear a helmet either. I didn't wear a helmet growing up while riding a bike. Didn't need one. The only helmets that we wore while riding bikes were football helmets and that was when we were jousting with baseball bats.
See I turned out normal. All without a helmet.
