Friday Night Fun (alternate title: You Might be a Redneck…)

June 17, 2011

We took Brian out for an early Father’s Day dinner tonight.  Well, actually he sent me a text earlier today and said let’s go out for dinner.  But I am the one who decided we should go to one of his favorite places (the chinese buffet) and make it an early Father’s Day celebration. 

After dinner when I wished him a “Happy Father’s Day” he said, “Thanks.  And thanks for letting me pay for dinner.”  LOL!  That’s just how things work around here!

Anyhoo…when we were almost finished with dinner Tay said she wanted to do something else.  She suggested we go to Target.  I suggested we go to Big Lots (it’s right next to the chinese buffet) and look around since they always have interesting things to look at.  I even suggested we should see who could find the strangest items. 

We saw a figurine of a man riding a camel.  It looked like it was out of a nativity set but was sitting all by itself in the candle section.

We saw a huge recliner (which I almost got stuck in) that had two cup holders.  The chair only sat one person.  Why two cup holders?  (Nick says so you can have two beers.  We don’t drink beer!). 

The “Shrek” humidifier was pretty cute.

Tay loved the cool purple sun glasses I found and the “slap bracelet” watch she discovered. 

There was one discovery that seemed to stand out above all the rest (at least for one of us):

The “redneck wind chime”.  In case you can’t tell those cans say “beer” and “beans”.

Hilarious (at least in the mind of a 15 year old).  He just thought it was the best thing ever. 

And yes, he bought it to hang in his room.

An no, I’m not kidding.

He might be a redneck.

But then again, we all found some Friday night fun at Big Lots. 

We might all be rednecks.
