I can't remember the last time I paid for something with actual cash. Other than groceries, gas, and such, I rarely even shop in actual stores.
Magnum and I were in the local Barnes & Noble a couple of weeks ago. Meego needed a book for school, and I'd ordered it online, but it ended up being the wrong edition. Easy fix, just hit the local B&N down the road.
I couldn't find the book, so I bothered a store employee,
"I'm looking for 'The Stranger' by Albert Camus" , I said, pronouncing it "AL-bert CAM-us"
She began typing at her computer, and said, "AL-bert ka-MOO"
Oh, heh, that's what I said, right? I guess my non-culture was showing. I later learned that his name is actually pronounced "al-BEAR ka-MOO", so who's the uncultured one now??
Another example of why shopping online is easier - no one to check your incorrect pronunciation.
I mention this because the prompt at Illustration Friday for this week is "shopping", and I was going to draw some money, but I got busy with unshopping and didn't draw a darn thing. So I'm cheating and going with a throwback drawing. Stupid because I only go to Illustration Friday to inspire me to draw something, not pull something out of the archives!
But like I said, I was unshopping, meaning I was tidying and then took a load o' stuff to the donation center.
I loves me some tidying and unshopping. Plus, I know how to correctly pronounce "Albert Camus".
