You're all nodding your heads, aren't you? I don't mean issues, I mean a problem.
Standing in Target the other day, I found myself compelled to share my opinion. There was a new mom, her tiny baby and baby's grandma... trying to decide which diaper wipes to buy.
"There are a bunch of clearanced wipes over there on a shelf," I directed. They happily went over to check out the wipes, so, mission accomplished.
But why? Why do I have to interject?? I did it last week too. As I steered my cart down the baby aisle at Albertson's, I spotted a man agonizing over the diaper rash remedies. He was holding two different tubes of A&D.
Before I could stop myself, I was next to him holding a tube of Boudreaux's Butt Paste and singing its praises. Unlike the nice ladies at Target, he wasn't quite so receptive. He felt compelled to tell me he had been sent for something specific, and with that, he would leave. Probably he thought his hormonally driven wife would have 'accidentally' hit him over the head with a frying pan if he returned with the wrong product. But even that guy left with the Butt Paste in hand...
I don't get it! Where did this side of me come from? Where has it been hiding??
It's like some sort of new mommy syndrome... and I could swear it only compells me to give unsolicited advice on baby goods.
Does anyone else suffer this, ehem, issue??
...or am I just swan-diving into the shallow end of the pool again?
