If i was going to design a shopping complex, the store that i would choose to put beside a Wal-Mart, would be Princess Auto. It seems pretty logical to me. The husband could go one way and his wife, the other. The shopping would be done in half the time and they could get home early enough to have his wife model that leopard print number i mentioned earlier.
Princess Auto is, for lack of a better description, two acres of awesomeness. I can't think of any other place that you can be pushing a cart along and hear: "OH LOOK! A WHOLE BIN FULL OF CHEVY POWER WINDOW MOTORS FOR 5 BUCKS A PIECE! SWEET!" At Princess Auto, you can get everything from a gas powered excavator you can pull behind your quad, (gas powered excavator......say that three times in a row.) to an empty military ammunition box. Truthfully, if i could think of a reason to own an empty military ammunition box, other than to say to my buddy, "hey, look at this! It's an actual empty military ammunition box!" i would probably already own one.
Princess Auto is the store where it's my wife's job to push the cart while i wander around like a kid who's just eaten a whole bag of gummy bears asking questions like, "Do you think we could ever use up a thousand feet of camouflage colored rope? It's only 7 bucks!" I can imagine she'd probably rather stab her eyeballs out with a spoon.
|12 inch traffic cones. Because 24 inch would just be overkill|
I actually spent some time in the traffic cone department deciding on these. They make collapsible traffic cones. I know why they do that, it's for convenience. But if i'm going to shell $3.99 for a traffic cone, i want everyone to be able to see it, so those were out. I was afraid that if i bought the 24 inch cones, people might think that i'm compensating for something. Therefore, by process of elimination, i am now the proud owner of two, glorious, non-collapsible, 12 inch traffic cones.
...............i can't wait to come up with something to use them for.
