So I need to say something today. My name is Ambrosia, and I'm a dork! There, now the cat's out of the bag and I can move on to showing you exactly HOW I'm a dork. Or at least one way.
I am absolutely horrible about buying impulse items. You know the cheesy, cheaply made crap up by the registers at big box stores? Oh yeah, that's right. The area where you can find both a snuggly and a sectioned brownie pan. I actually give myself a little pep talk before heading into the store - "You are JUST going to buy things that are on the list today. NO CRAP!" It rarely works. Case in point: 2 days ago, I saw this:
Oh, you know it - the Slipper Genie. The horribly unattractive slippers you wear that promise to do the cleaning for you. Now here's why I thought these actually look like a good buy: We just recently moved into a house with hard wood floors. I spend SO much time cleaning them because I've got three boys walking around leaving little footprints everywhere! So I go suckered into buying them. And wearing them. And liking them. At least a little. They actually did a good job at cleaning up the footprints, but only when I used cleaner (which the slippers tell you not to do). And they gave my thighs a workout - bonus! But the BEST part about them? They looked like so much fun that my kids were fighting about who got the next turn! (Insert evil mom laughter here.)
My only questions: Is this child labor? And will I get in trouble?
