I went to the store after work today, because I had the urge to do a little Christmas shopping. It would have to be brief, though, because then I’d drive home, get some stuff for my mom, then drive over to her place, chat a bit and then go to choir. I wound up buying something for one of my brothers and his wife. Then I bought “Julie & Julia” to watch later on in the week.
My mind convinced me that it was Tuesday, and I heard that on Tuesday they would release “Inglourious Basterds” on DVD. So I went to the electronics department, eagerly looking for the movie. There was a rack that had labels on it for that movie, but no movies were stacked in there! Wow, people must’ve piled into Walmart to snatch up all the copies! I went over to a Walmart employee and asked him if he had more “Inglourious Basterds” in stock. He was unlocking a cabinet at the time, but when I asked my question his face twisted up and he replied, “Wha??” I clarified that it was a DVD and it should be in the New Releases section. “Oh, I thought you were kidding!…Um, I don’t know, ask that guy over there.” I was sent to a younger guy who looked grouchy and just as distracted. I asked him if they had more copies of “Inglourious Basterds”, to which he replied, “We won’t get any until tomorrow.” Ah. Okay.
As I went on shopping, I thought, “Maybe the commercials meant that it was going to be released on Wednesday.” I finally realized what day it was when I saw the commercial again and mentioned it would be out this Tuesday. The fact that I had choir tonight and only have choir on Mondays did not give me a clue.
Two more days left until my last vacation of the year. My scrambled brain will need it.
