What a weekend.
I went to the dollar store (Dollar Tree) twice this weekend. Then I went to the Hundred Dollar Store (Ulta). Also, I went to the Drag A Hundred Dollar Bill Through A Trailer Park store ( Harmon Discount Cosmetics).
This is the difference in the clientele:
- Ulta. Desperate customers spend hour after hour circling the aisles and picking things up/scrutinizing details and ingredients. They are carueful in the strip mall parking lot so as not to get their pretty faces maimed by traffic. I do believe that Laura Geller can help me fight ageism for at least another year. Unfortunately, I need a year and two months to survive.
- Harmon. Low prices but you have to hunt for the brand names and know the low end equivalents. ELF forever! Parking lot is full of lower middle-to-lower class individuals who keep walking even though they see cars pulling in and backing out. This is the crowd you see with a folder full of medical bills on Judge Judy 18 months after their fact.
- Dollar Tree. Wet n Wild Lavendar Creme Nail Polish. Olay 10X Moisturizing Beauty Bar. ‘Nuf said.
Flying to Denver tomorrow IF there’s no snow or airport delays.
