Freak Out!

Wanna totally freak your own brain out? 

Yeah, I knew you did.

Here's how:

Live in one location for a few years.
Visit that location's WalMart.  A lot.

Then, move to a new location.
Visit the new location's WalMart.  A lot.

Now, here's the freak out:

Go back to the ORIGINAL WalMart.
Things are similar.  But different.
You're lost.  But you're not. 
You know where things are.  But you don't.
Departments are in the "sorta-same" location.  But not.
And no matter how hard you try, your brain will not be able to make the situation understandable.
Aisles that you SWORE held coffee, tea, and creamers ACTUALLY have crackers, chips, and pretzels.

And I don't care who you are.  Brewed pretzels for breakfast just aren't any good.  I'd argue that, brewed, they are NEVER any good.  No matter who you are. 

This freak out has been brought to you courtesy of our fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants trip back to that beautiful, beautiful, place by the sea we recently moved from.  You're welcome.  Now go to Walmart!

  1. We have moved a lot and I can feel your pain! I don't understand why Wal-mart doesn't standardize the layout of their stores. I feel like I wander around lost a lot of the time. Who needs exercise when you can walk around and around and around Wal-mart?
