Fool's Dirt!

I went to Lowe’s today to look at garden vegetables…I do believe that I had a Lowe’s brain explosion!

While looking at the vegetables, I spied herbs section; I must go check out the herbs! Oh My Gosh, FLOWERS!
I must go find potting containers for my bounty!

While looking for the perfect pots to plant my dearly loved plants, I was approached by a sales attendant who told me…are you ready for this! Free dirt! If I buy the pots and plants, the dirt is free!

I could not believe that I could play in the dirt! Show me the way! Man, this is great! I am in my glory! Martha Stewart, eat your heart out!

After, I filled the third pot with dirt… I began to rethink my joy! Especially, when my joints started screaming at me, stop you IDIOT!

Then it dawned on me, I had been hoodwinked! This dirt pile is a ‘sucker’s box’ because customers are not buying bags of dirt so Lowes is giving it away! Come to think of it- how many people who live out in the county would drag a bunch of dirt home with them!

Apparently, this sucker would! Somebody should ban Lowes from letting people play in their dirt pile because there will always be a sucker like me!

I get to emotional to write about how I managed to get pots filled with dirt in my little care. Oh, shut up Martha Stewart!
