Just Say No

A word of advice here...don't listen when a 15 year old diva girl says she "just needs one thing" at the drugstore cosmetic counter. On the way to the hospital Lindsay pleaded with me to stop at Shopper's for "one thing". I heard it eight times.

Here's the bill:

Keep in mind that I'd agreed to a $6 purchase. Of special note is the total...we're a little off. And I'm a sucker who got conned. I knew that compliment yesterday would cost me, didn't I?

(Anyone with half a brain will invest in shares of L'Oreal.)

LOL to the L'Oreal comment!
Shoppers is so bloody expensive eh? Everytime I go in there I end up spending at least 30$ at least. And I always go in wanting to buy cottonballs, and never ever do I come out with them. I have 11 kinds of lotions and nail polish, but no cottonballs. I need a list.

Drugstores are dangerous places. Don't let your kids in there alone.
