I just got back from Target. The bawls have been removed. They’ve been replaced with nuts.
Honestly, it’s like the magical shelf of things-to-make-Jenny-suspect-she’s-being-videotaped.
And I actually went and looked for the Bawls since so many people said I should try them but I couldn’t find them anywhere and when the clerk asked me if I need help I said “Um…I’m looking for bawls?” and he said “Like, tennis balls?” and then I said “Yes. Exactly like tennis balls” because I couldn’t even make myself say “No. I’m looking for the kind of bawls you drink” and I considered pulling out my phone to just show him the picture I’d taken of their bawls last week but it seemed even more awkward to ask someone to wait while you scroll through your camera-phone photos to find the one you’d taken of their bawls. I’m sure all the people at Target had a great laugh about this later since they are obviously doing this on purpose just to fuck with me.
Comment of the day: Lowe’s does the exact same kind of thing! Evidently, if you you want to re-caulk your tub, you need caulk softener to remove the old caulk. Because no one likes old caulk, right? The caulk is right where you’d expect, but caulk softener is not. So then you have to find someone and tell them “I have caulk, but I need caulk softener.” Awesome. And then go into a little group and laugh at you (really) and then they call ahead to the caulk-softener aisle, and those folks are already laughing at you when you get there. True story. ~ BonnieAnn
