I was strolling through Target seeking a filter for my coffeemaker when I noticed something terribly disturbing: folks picking up watermelons for post-July 4th celebrations had to run the school supply gauntlet in order to get to the hot dog buns and corn on the cob. Seriously? Kids haven’t been out of school long enough to forget how their brains work yet and some parents are still seeking summer day care. I feel as though I’ve been put into a blender and had my brain scrambled after checking out those notebooks. Wait. Did I just see coats on sale?
