You might think we are in the woods, but no... it's just a tree in the Best Buy parking lot.
See we weren't lying.
Now don't get me wrong, Best Buy in itself is just fine. I actually like the store. What I did not like is how we were stranded there for 3 hours while they tried to show my less than technical savvy mother how to use the device. On the bright side, we got really close to one of the employees who took a liking to little Rory. I sure loved Candance. She was obsessed with Rory's bright red hair and big blue eyes. Lizzie and Kim were engrossed in conversation with Candace when I walked over.
"Is this Daddy?" Candace says popping her grape smelling bubble gum.
"Yes," Kim says.
"I see now," Candace says, "Your hair. His eyes. Deadly Combination. He's going to be a ladykiller!"
From that moment on, Candace was our best friend. She followed us around the store and Kim swapped recipes on all the different things you could dill. Lizzie gave her a great mood ring, and I got a pleasant smile. It was only 4 hours later that we were still in Best Buy. My mother was trying to figure out how to type a word into the tablet. Lizzie's mom was tired from spending 5 hours at Best Buy and Lizzie and I were walking back from the bathroom. I put my arm around her as we walked, because we are just that close. You know how you have that one friend who you've known for 11 plus years and you've been through probably the craziest, angsty, and somewhat monumental times of your life with? That'd be Lizzie. Anyhow as we breezed across the store, Candace's eyes fell on us and they grew as big as saucers. I could just hear them saying "YOU ARE CHEATING ON YOUR WIFE, and you have such a cute baby." I could tell in that moment, we were dead to Candace. It was a horrible, miserable, no good, very bad 7 hours at Best Buy.
Why are we still here? Why do we have to play around in the parking lot?
I grab my mom when Geek Squad Bill was trying to show her how to take a picture with the camera and say, "Everyone is in the parking lot. We are dying. Kim is sitting in the trunk, the baby has grown a mustache, Lizzie is juggling Rory, and Lizzie's mom has fallen asleep in her rental car. We have been here for 9 hours. We can't take it anymore. We will figure the rest of this tablet out at home."
She nods, wishing she could stay a little longer and learn more about technology but leaves with me.
A random spoon I probably should not have picked up.
Found the Mustache at a Halloween Spirit Store that was connected to Best Buy!
