Here's a story for ya...
So, I wake up this morning and in the process of putting in my contact lenses, I use up the last of my contact solution. I make a mental note so that hopefully I will remember to buy some when I make my daily trip to Target to look for toys. Well, it was one of those busy days at work and I didn't have time to run out to Target over lunch. I figured "no problem". I'd just hit Walgreens on my way home and grab a new bottle or two to re-supply.
Now, I drive past this particular Walgreens every day on my way to work, never giving it a second thought most of the time, that is, until days like today when I actually need to stop in there. So, I pull into the parking lot, hop out of my car and head into the store. I moved past a few old ladies milling about in the entry way and check out the overhead signage. I see the sign for "Eye Care" and off I go.
Now, the path from the front door leads me directly past the toy aisle. I figure, what the hell. I'll check it out and possibly get the chance to mock the dusty Ep1 figures still on the pegs or something. Here's where the fun begins.
What do you think was hanging on the pegs?CLICK ME for your answer!
I know what you're thinking - it's nuts. Still can't believe it myself.
It was like Karma reached down from the Heavens and said, "Here you go dude!" They only have ONE Star Wars figure in the whole damn store and it's freakin' Scorch
? Unreal. He was surrounded by a bunch of Power Ranger and Ninja Turtle crap on a lone peg marked "Star Wars Series - $7.99". No Yoda, no Poggle - just one lonely Scorch.
I asked the employee in the store if they had any more. She checked the back and said, nope. They got a box in last week and that is all that's left. So, thank you to all the old ladies of Oakdale who picked up Poggle or 3PO or Jango for their grandkids and left Scorch behind.
