I dragged my tired, crampy, crabby butt to Target this morning because, quite frankly, we were going to start having to wipe our hands on our tee shirts and our rear ends on...let's just say we were out of a lot of the essentials. I was on a mission: get in and get out. Those of you who know me are now shaking your heads in disbelief because you know that THAT IS JUST NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. I may have looked at a couple of non-essentials. Whatever. Quit being so judgemental. ANYWAY, imagine my surprise when I checked my receipt and saw THIS.Some of you will no doubt be as shocked as I was--O.B. TAMPONS ARE A SPECIALTY ITEM AT TARGET! I walked out with just a hint of a spring in my step. It wasn't as if I had splurged on chocolate covered raisins or gourmet coffee or anything, but still. I do enjoy the finer things in life.

Hey Lori, thanks so much for visiting my blog on my SITS day this week! Your comments were so kind and energising!!

Your post is a classic! Thought for us (Aussies) it's extremely annoying that tampons are a specialty item as it means they are classed as "non-essential" and therefore we pay tax on them. I am still waiting for someone to explain to me how tampons (&pads!) are "non-essential". Perhaps we should all rock up to parliament house without using them and see how they feel then! LOL! OK, that grossed even me out!!

Have a good day!! :)
