So, I get to go back to work today. Ho... hum. We will be busy at the Returns Desk as customers bring back the impulse buys, those gifts which somehow failed to ring the bell. There will also be those looking for deep discounts in our remaining Christmas decorations. They will probably be sorely disappointed. We dropped them by 50% a week before the holiday. All that remains is the shit stuff no one really wants, like ugly inflatables. They weren't as big a seller this year as they have been in the past. Let us hope that like all trendy things they have peaked.
And, out of all the toys the dogs got, their favorite is not the one humans liked. Maybe we should think more like dogs... and cats, for that matter. The adorable T-Rex sits silently on the hallway floor, abandoned by Lily and Biggie as another toy has completely stolen their attention. I uploaded this from my phone, so my apologies if it plays sideways. (It only turns sideways if you blow it up)
That's the Wuba Fish from Kong. And I thought Biggie would just walk in... wrong. Now it's one of those moments the world gets to see.
Gallup posted one of their regular polls. The Idiot Jerk's approval rating has actually gone up a couple of points... since the impeachment hearings have started. This was always the potential problem. Not from Democrats, mind you, but from Independent voters. They are the largest voting block in the country. Our hardliners need to keep that in mind. No matter how watertight they might believe their case against the Idiot Jerk to be, the Independents will be the ones who make the decision in the ballot box this coming November. We may think they want a T-Rex, but really, it's the Wuba Fish they're going to find most satisfying.
