Oh, why couldn't it be a cool Nikon fish-eye lens that leapt into my cart instead?

Seriously, if something's going to mysteriously leap into my shopping cart, only to be discovered by me after I pay for it, and take it out of my shopping bag at home, don't you think it could at least be a Nikon lens? Maybe a fisheye; maybe a really nice wide-angle, or the 24-70mm f/2.8 that I can only dream about . . .

But no. . . it's just Wilton Dipping Candy that decided to GO ROGUE and sneak into my cart, escaping from the Target store.

I'm sorry, Martha. . . I had no choice but to melt this plastic-like substance made out of only God-Knows-what, and smear it all over these pretzels. I won't even think about reading the ingredients list. . .

They're not even pretty, but they'll be transported to Brian's house this Thanksgiving, along with all the other goodies I've been baking and cooking.

*Sigh* . . . but it could have been a monopod, or reflectors, or someone willing to sit still for me to photograph to my heart's content, other than a dead turkey. . . .

You never know...you may have discovered a new love! :)

Sorry to gloat ... the lens is good and worth having - not sure I use it to its potential though. I'm worried about what you might be subjecting that poor turkey to - go easy!

Funny thing to wind up in your cart, but it looks yummy. I love salty and sweet snacks!

lol! It's mainly chocolate that jumps into my shopping trolley - all by itself, you know.... ;-)

Jeanne said...

You are hysterical! Giggling madly here, although wouldn't you have to be in a camera store for those things to jump into your cart? LOL Love the dead turkey comment, too.

Your treats will surely be appreciated though, if that helps at all!

Too funny!!! Is the mix anygood??

Maria said...

Well, at least it didn't Go Rouge, red pretzels would have been weird. I'm sure Brian will be very happy to take these with him. And now you can also give him his crockpot!

I though from the title of the post, that some other camera item had made its way into your cart. Darn!

PS, go for the 24-70 f2.8 over the fisheye. Sounds like the perfect Christmas gift!

I was dreaming about asking my MIL for the nikkor fish eye, but somehow a thousand item doesn't seem like it'll make the cut! So I asked for a much less fancy 55-200 nikkor lens. At $250ish, maybe I'll get it! LOL

So, did it turn out to be any good??

Karen said...

LOL! I love pretzels and chocolate. A friend gave me a great recipe years ago for pretzels, white chocolate, and Spanish peanuts. I make huge batches of it every year.

You are shopping at the wrong store! Go to B&H Photo and some like that might just happen. So how were the pretzels?
