maeyan (in the soup aisle, looking at Random Impulse Buys hanging on display-strips) : *holds up tube*
maeyan: "What does Hello Kitty flavored lip gloss taste like?"
mpoetess: "..."
mpoetess: "I... can't answer that. This is a family store."
mpoetess: *stares silently at maeyan for several seconds*
maeyan: (coming closer with cart) "What?"
mpoetess: "Just composing the LJ post in my head."

mpoetess: *attempts to put soup in cart*
maeyan: *turns cart away each time I bring soup near it*
maeyan: "The cart rejects that soup."
mpoetess: *holds up soup* "Clam chowder?"
maeyan: "The cart is... confused."
mpoetess: "I thought the cart liked clam chowder?"
maeyan (who likes clam chowder, not that it matters, since the soup is mine): "The having an identity crisis."
maeyan: "The cart wishes it were IRL."1
mpoetess: *stares at maeyan more*
maeyan: *laughs in crazed manner*
mpoetess: "Now I'mcomposing the footnote to the LJ post."

She bought me the lip gloss. As a prompt, so I wouldn't forget to make the LJ post. It does not taste like Hello Kitty. It tastes like vaguely-sugar-flavored stuff, like pretty much every other liquid lip-gloss. It smells like watermelon.

I know you *so* well. ;-)

And - in a reply to a comment further down? It seems *everybody* is in the Chicago viewing area - we even used to get it out here in the am hours. Empire carpet. *shakes head* Haven't been self-employed1 in about, er, yearS (?!?) I don't know if it's still available.

1 Self-employed and thereby able to watch TV all day/night long in the background, while working all day/night long...ah, the good ol' days?

The Empire commercial has showed up on southern Indiana tv too when I was in college -- I think they may advertise pretty far out of the actual Chicago broadcasting area!

Yeah, I think I knew they served Indy because I've heard the 1-800-588 etc, and back when we caught it in Evansville they didn't have that, afaik.
