Cruel & Unusual

Every time I go into Hobby Lobby, I don’t know if I’ll make it out alive. It’s my least favorite store on the planet. I despise it so much that I’m pretty sure time actually slows down once I enter, extending the pain.

We were buying wrapping paper the other day, so I had to endure it for 20 excruciating minutes.

Laura mentioned my severe dislike of the house of hobby horrors to her coworker today. To which he responded, “I’m with Aaron on this one. When I misbehaved as a kid, my mom didn’t send me to my room. Instead, she made me get in the car and go with her to JoAnn’s.”

    I recall seeing a particularly creepy sign at the door assuring me it was OK to bring in my concealed weapon. I read it as I listened to Tennessee Ernie For singing some particularly cloying Christian song on the PA.
    I don’t do much Hobby-Lobbying any more.

    Nor do I, Auntie M, nor do I.
