I have always loved watching beauty pageants. I like competition. I like getting dressed up. So even though they are a little hokey, I am technically still a little girl who wants to grow up and be beautiful.
Well, I've found a way to get just a smidgen of that princess spotlight.
If you go to Walmart late at night, the lights are a little lower and the isles a little emptier. Go to the frozen section and wait for the isle to be completely empty. Then proceed slowly down the isle, careful to stay in the middle of the lane. As you go, there is a sensor that turns on the lights as you approach each glass door.
It's like the spotlights are coming on just for you.
Feel free to give the pageant wave as you go.
No bathing suit or evening gown necessary.
It makes me stand a bit taller.
Until I round the corner to the check out.
