$14.99 can buy a lot these days. I could get a decent steak dinner at the Outback. 20 redbulls can be had for that price. It could buy the newest Kelly Clarkson album and a pack of gum. You could get one sleeve of a Lacoste shirt. Or landscaping for three hours. All of which would have been more enjoyable than my order of Valley Schwag.
I make a lot of stupid purchases. When I was 14, I bought a remote control build-yer-own wooden boat. I spent weeks working on it and only finished the hull. At 15, it was Christian music and t-shirts. My most shameful was at 17, when I purchased Nads and then couldn’t “bare” the pain and had to buy Epil Stop to finish the job.

Name-calling and screaming… Of all places, I walk into a Circle K, and what used to be a whisper is now yelling for a decision to be made. Everyone has made the choice or must choose now. I think by now you know what I’m talking about.
My Grandpa is mostly deaf. From his account, his hearing loss was the result of homemade fireworks and potato grenades. As long as I can remember, he’s had bad hearing. He couldn’t hear an elephant fart if it sat down on his head. Well, at least the right side of his head. He cranks the TV up to 29 and cups his hand to his good ear so he can hear. He says hearing aides are too expensive. But I think he’s too proud to, as he puts it, “put a huge piece of plastic in my ear.” If that […]
