I Feel Sorry For Bruised Apples

You really can’t take me grocery shopping without me feeling sorry for something. A bruised apple, I’ll buy it. A carton of eggs with one egg cracked, I’ll buy them. A dented can of tomatoes, I’ll buy it. I am such a sap!

I mean, who else is going to buy that stuff? I feel sorry for damaged food. (Except not milk that is about to expire. I stay way the hell away from that. If I get the slightest whiff of milk going bad, glug, glug, glug, down the sink it goes without even thinking.)

The other day when I was grocery shopping, there was a section of Valentines stuff that didn’t sell and was on clearance. Yuck, who wants that crap?? Not me. But wait.


Something caught my eye. A purple-and-pink stuffed Valentine monster. All by itself.

Except, not anymore.

That purple-and-pink stuffed Valentine monster, bruised apple, cracked eggs, and dented can of tomatoes all came home with me that day.

I couldn't resist this on clearance. I'm a sucker for toys that didn't sell.

I know a little girl who was very excited that you found this lonely heart monster. She has snuggled the monster as she sleeps every night since it arrived. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and for bringing such a big smile to my little girl’s face!!!
