I was at Wal-Mart today. You know. The lovely store that seems to have its own “dress code” anymore. I had to go and get dog food, a couple of odds and ends, and a last-minute Christmas gift.
Well for being in there so early in the morning, it really wasn’t bad until I was about half way through my trip. Then the people started to really come in.
As I’m browsing through those already made up gifts, this lady comes down the aisle and I can hear music. Didn’t think anything of it as most of the time people have songs for ringtones. So I’m standing there checking a couple of things out that caught my eye and I turn around and the music is louder. She’s right behind him. However her phone wasn’t stopping with the music. That’s when it dawned on me that she was listening to “Let It Go”. Right then and there I wanted to scream!
Now my first thought was “oh my gawd, again?” but when I glanced over her way as I started to pass her by and turn to go to the next aisle I realized she was sort of singing or even listening to the music. I thought ok, she’s trying to get the music.
As the day went on I would come back and think “I understand that it’s a very popular song but it just irritates me”. Why? Because maybe like the million of Moms across the land I just about know the song by heart as like some of the others can also do the dance that Elsa does in the movie.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is this “let it go” when you’re in Wal-Mart. Us Moms don’t want to hear something, especially when we are without our child(ren), and trying to keep what sanity that we do have left. Because now it makes me wonder if I will be seeing you in the next series of “People Of Wal-Mart”.
PS. I like “In Summer” much better. Yes, I’m an Olaf fan.
