So, today I Went over the Safeway to return the pop bottles. My other objective was to get a bottle of hair gel. I've been "sharing" without asking with my bro for like.... a couple of months... ANYWHO.... :) I thought I'd get us both another bottle since his was about to run out. Well, turns out that Safeway lets me down once again.... :) (By the way, for those of you who don't know, I live about one city block away from Safeway and Walgreens, like, I can see Walgreens from where I'm sitting at my comptuer desk right now.... and it's on the bottom level of my house...) Back on track. So, the good ole say way to go didn't have what I was looking for... (sorry, had to insert that pun).
Because of this, I go over the walgreens. Hoping, just maybe hoping, that they've kept to the standards of men's style long enough for me to get some gel.
I walk in there. Go to the "Hair needs" isle. (Who names those isles anyway??? I mean, the blue box mac & cheese, the pasta roni, it's always in the "Rice and Beans" isle of EVERY store I go to! Who thinks of this stuff?) As I walk down the isle.... I see it.... "L.A. Looks Number 9 Mega Mega Extreme Hold"... and I'm like... what the heck? Mega, mega? Extreme?? Who thinks of this stuff??? So then I look to the right of that bottle, and see the, "L.A. looks, Sports Hold Number 10". And I think to myself, "AAaaaahhhh... much better. That's more like it." But then think... "Wait... what about this L'Oreal junk? Dave says it's way better than the colored stuff." I stand there, looking at my options. Suddenly feeling thrown into women's shoes and realizing that wow... I'm totally standing in a "Hair needs" isle at Walgreens, looking at gel, and trying to decide between which BRAND to use... I call Eric......yeah.... no kidding..... I really called my brother to talk to him about it...... :)
He and I discuss this VERY important matter for a moment. And I decided to stick with the L.A. looks. Just because the bottle is literally three times the size of the L'Oreal stuff. And it's $1.99 for that bottle, rather than the CRAZY price of $4.99 for the little bottle of the other brand. That, and it doesn't have the word, "Sport" on the label... No can do L'Oreal......
