When the forecast is 70% sure of a torrential downpour, do not wear a long maxi dress to Target. If you must go anyway, do yourself a favor and carry in a decent umbrella. To take it a cautionary step further, the first gigantic rumble from the pitch-dark sky should be your sign to get back to your car.
What you shouldn’t do is:
1) Stop for popcorn and drinks.
2) Remember that you need more Revlon Lip Butter (but you’re still not sure what color – they’re all so fab) and go back for it, after already spending $49 on things from the dollar section and the new Carrie Underwood CD.
3) Take a stroll through the toys, particularly in the aisle screaming “THOMAS THE TRAIN” everywhere.
4) Run through the parking lot like a maniac with your two toddlers in the buggy, telling them to “hold on tight!”
If you do these things, you’ll find yourself looking like a do-it-yourself version of rain ombre from the hair to the clothes. I started this day feeling kinda cute. Now, kinda like a drowned rat.
From the looks of this picture, I should spend more time with Windex and less with Target and their deadly popcorn. I swear my house isn’t dirty… :)
