I want to an exclusive Toys R Us sale a while ago.
Funny how some people don’t get what exclusive means.
There was a jerk at the entrance of the store, and he’s making a scene.
Doorman: I’m sorry, Sir. Hindi po kayo pwedeng pumasok. This is an exclusive sale.
Guy: Huh? Bakit?
Doorman: Exclusive nga po, Sir.
But the jerk was persistent in wanting to get inside the store.
Doorman: Wag na po kayong mapilit, Sir. If you want, we could let you in, but you must have a credit card from either one of our partners: Metrobank or RobinsonsBank–Cebu Pacific.
Guy: I don’t want a card. I just want to buy toys.
Me: Uhm, excuse me, jerk! Didn’t you get that it’s an exclusive sale? Now, if you don’t mind, please step aside coz there’s a long queue of exclusive shoppers behind me.
And as the doorman stamped my wrist, I looked at the jerk and showed my stamped wrist.
Me: See? Exclusive.
Once inside the store, you’d see a pandemonium. It’s crazy to see a horde of shoppers with carts and carts of different toys, made even crazier with an air of Christmas tunes.
Paskong-pasko na sa store na ‘to.
While my officemates were scattered to where the bags, dolls, toy cars, and jigsaw puzzles are; I was looking on the racks of Uno, Monopoly, and Magic 8 Ball.
Magic 8 Ball.
I’ve always wanted to have one, when I was young. But I think it’s silly if I’d own one right now. I mean, what’s a 28 year old doing with a Magic 8 Ball?
Anyway, just for the heck of it, I tried asking questions… about my twitter crush. *hihihi*
Me: So, is it possible na magka-crush sa akin si twitter crush? *shake shake shake*
Magic 8 Ball: Without a doubt.
Ay, potaena! It made me wanna ask some more questions.
Me: Not that I’m a size queen, pero malaki ba yung ano ni twitter crush? I mean, yung you know.. yung ano nya? *shake shake*
Magic 8 Ball: Better not tell you know.
Chosera. Pa-suspense ang walanghiya.
Me: Eeeeeeh. Sige na. Sabihin mo na. Malaki ba yung ano nya? *shake shake shake*
Magic 8 Ball: Signs point to yes.
Anyway, I didn’t buy the thing. I just put it back.
A few toys caught my interest, though:
· Battery-powered aquarium fishes (the clownfish one looks really cute)
· Modern Tamagotchis
· And this thing called a blinking caterpillar:
