Special Delivery

Every week, I get in my Passion Party orders from the previous week’s parties, package them up and deliver them to my hostesses. This week, the hostess asked that I deliver her orders to her at work. I got them all packaged up discreetly in Wal-Mart grocery bags and put them in my trunk to deliver them to her.

Before I did that, the kids and I desperately needed to run to Wal-Mart grocery store for a few necessary items. Eli took pleasure in pointing out every single Dora item in the store to Georgia, who screamed “DORA!” louder each time.

Just as a side note, have you ever freaking noticed how many items have Dora’s picture on them – yogurt, pop tarts, fruit chews, soup, crackers, popsicles, you name it!! Dora is going to be the death of me! I already had to shell out money for a pink pair of Dora sandals at Wal-Mart on Saturday because Georgia wouldn’t let go of them and it was worth it to avoid the screaming.

But I digress. I sped through the store and threw the groceries in the trunk of my car, strapped the kids in and headed off to deliver my hostess’s Passion Party orders. I pulled up to the shop where she works and parked directly in front so I could run in and not have to take the kids.

I opened the trunk, grabbed two Wal-Mart sacks and rushed inside. I delivered them quickly and ran back out to the car. About halfway home, it occurred to me that I didn’t double check the sacks before I rushed them inside. I had a trunk full of Wal-Mart sacks, and I didn’t double check.

About that time, my cell phone rang. Oh, double crap. It was my hostess. Oops.

I made a U-turn and headed back to her shop. I parked again and this time double checked the sack before I brought it inside. I went in and handed her the Wal-Mart sack with two vibrators and edible massage lotion, and she handed me back my Wal-Mart sack filled with orange juice and yogurt.

Dude. I really need to be more careful.

Look at it this way: at least it wasn't "deliver cookies to Eli's preschool day"

Imagine the teacher's face when you handed her a Wal-Mart bag with a Jackrabbit inside!!!

cheers,
mo

ha! I was thinking the same thing Morgen was. It could have been worse.

Kara said...

LOL too funny!

Desert Songbird said...

Yeah, this could have been MUCH more embarrassing than it was. Note to Neila: don't use Wal-Mart bags if you're heading there later!

Sadie said...

I of course was thinking the same thing as Mo. Better to deliver OJ and yogurt to someone expecting vibrators than vice versa.

So does the hostess then get to know what each person has purchased? Sounds like blackmail material to me.

Well, since I can't top Mo's comment, I'll just have to talk about Dora.

She's out of control.

HA! Only you, Neila, would be more embarassed delivering a bag of groceries over a bag of sex toys. Hilarious!
