The Incontinence Aisle
A few days ago, Ashley & I were at Walmart. I tend to get giddy and a little silly when I go places without my children. Occasionally, my silliness bubbles over and makes itself known to the world at large. We were walking down the main part of the store, and I was looking at the signs that say what is in each aisle, when I saw one that said, among other things, "incontinence." There were three people shopping in the end of that aisle. I said, in a loud projecting voice, "That is the incontinence aisle!" They looked at each other like "Okay, she's a weirdo." A minute later, we were walking back that way, and I took another look at the people in the "incontinence aisle," and I realized that it was my parent's (and Ashley's) next door neighbors.
