This is the non-gross part:

I bought a new backpack yesterday for Arie since the one I'd gotten for him last month was a piece of crap and, even though it had an image of Superman on it, it fell apart, thus failing to live up to the reputation of the Man of Steel. I couldn't find another Superman backpack like Arie had requested, so I got a Batman one instead. Unfortunately, it too started tearing at the seam this morning so I had to return it, which meant I needed the receipt.

What I had stupidly done with the receipt, however, was leave it in the Target bag that I then stuck in the drawer with Frodo's poop bags. So this morning, when [livejournal.com profile] haddayr took Frodo out, she took that very Target bag and picked up his crap with it after he'd done his business.

After fruitlessly looking for the receipt in the house, I realized that this was what had happened and travelled out to the garbage to see if I could retrieve it. There it was, in the poop bag, smack up against the poop. I pulled it out and saw that it was mostly clean except for a suspicious liquid, so I pulled it from the bag, brought it inside and rinsed it under the water, then sprayed it with a perfumed air freshener and dried it off as best I could.

No one at Target suspected I was, in fact, carrying a poop receipt,and the exchange went off without a hitch, but it was definitely one of the more unpleasant returns I've had.

I still bet it was cleaner than the average $20 bill they handle.

Now that's a disgusting thought.

This is the most fantastic thing I have read in quite a while, adn though I probably shouldn't be, I am still giggling as I type this.

Thanks, Mr Radder!

(Incidentally, and quite far from anything you posted; have you ever seen a cartoon called Chowder? There is a character in it that only utters one word, and that word is 'Rada'. He will conduct whole conversations using that one word, and so every time I hear "rada rada rada rada?? RADA?" I think of you, and chortle just a little bit. Oh, I am so easily amused!)

I'm glad you liked it.

I've never seen Chowder but it's interesting that you mention it I have an old friend I recently got back in touch with who used to be a director on the series. I should try to track down the show. At the very least, Arie and √Čiden would enjoy it.

I hate being the person who posts links in other people's journals, but please... for the 30 seconds it will take to watch this...


Radda Radda!!

Thanks -- that was really bizarre, in a good way.
(and I always like interesting links)
