10 items or less

So my friend Dan and I have this running joke about how it's impossible to buy condoms with anything else without creating a narrative. It started when I kept loosing my padlock for the gym and ended up buying padlocks and condoms from the same checkout girl twice within the space of a month.

So yesterday I go to Target and got to the checkout aisle with:
Apples to Apples (a board game)
shaving cream and razors
200 sq feet of tinfoil
granola bars
condoms

As I'm putting the items on the conveyor belt I start giggling. So I'm trying to stifle the laughter and end up with a ridiculous smirk on my face.

I could see the checkout girl pause briefly, trying to come up with something other than her normal exit greeting before-uncomfortably-saying,'Have a good evening.'

I recently went to Target and just bought a box of wine. Nothing else. When I was leaving the cashier said, "Enjoy your wine..." with a big smile on her face... I think a packet of condoms would have a perfect impluse buy.

Where is this year going Erik?? It's almost over. This is craziness. Listening to a lot of Ray Stevens lately.

I think condoms and a birthday card for your gramma is still the best combo.

Although this game quickly gets creepy if you buy, say, condoms and chilren's aspirin with codeine.

I once bought two large packs of condoms, several blank VHS tapes, and a case of soda. After I checked out, she said, "it looks like someone is in for a great night". LOL! I didn't even realize the combination was so silly.
