Yes I Did!

So as I walked into the dreaded Wal-Mart this afternoon, I noticed they had Eclipse right by the entrance of the store. I paused, thinking "could this be the "Special Edition"?" So I grabbed one just to check. Sure enough, it was! I could hardly contain myself as I tried to push my cart while frantically flipping to the back of the book desperately looking for the first chapter of Breaking Dawn. Don't worry, I found it by the time I got to the jewelry counter. Then I started to read, completely wishing I was at Barnes & Noble where they have actual places for you to sit and read. My apologies to the people (three to be exact) that had to ask me to move so they could look at whatever it was that I was standing in front of. I wasn't pay the least bit of attention to anything but Chapter One. I kept switching aisles afraid that a store employee was going to rip the book out of my hands and I wouldn't be able to finish it. Don't worry (again), I finished it and it was FABULOUS!!! I kept laughing out loud and then had to pretend to be talking to my baby, acting like she just did something funny. I had the biggest smile as I walked back to the front of the store, ditched the book, and paid for my items. I was my greatest Wal-Mart trip, hands down. I'm thinking of going back again tomorrow, wanna meet me???

I did that same thing at Deseret Book. There is nothing wrong with it. Nothing.

I think you are nuts. I don't remember you being such an avid reader in high school. Mrs Peterson would be impressed.

Meanwhile her children go hungry and unwashed.

That was you??? Oh my gosh, I was one of those people who was trying to look at something but you were in my way. I couldn't see your face cause it was buried in that dang book. And it was actually not three different people, it was ME three different times. What a piece of work you are...

That's awesome!! When I was in high school I was doing that reading some magazines... and the stupid lady at the store told me to either buy it or put it back... what a "B"... I put it back. So good for you! I love the twilight series!! Can't wait for the new book!

What day do you want to go to the park?? The kids would love to play.

Also pick a night next week and lets really go out!!

That is a great idea! I have never once had a great Walmart trip. I think I might give this idea a whirl. So how in the world was the chapter???? We are almost finished with Eclipse again. I can hardly stand the wait.
