Beth’s shopping list

Beth’s shopping list

By adminMonday - January 22nd, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

So it is day one of my day off and I have realised my need for new pillows. Okay, you think…so what’s the big deal? No big deal really. I did some shopping online and came to the conclusion that the cheapest quality pillows would be had from Ikea.
Now most of us know what a trip to Ikea entails, so I figured I’d see if there was anything else I would like to pick up while I’m there. As per usual I am looking at bookcases. Not that I want to buy them while I’m there, but because I want to price out shelves because sometime down the line I want to put my printer/scanner on something other than a milk crate while at the same time creating more storage space for myself. Nevermind that if I put the printer on something higher up I won’t have to deal with Ramses attacking the printer as he sometimes does.
But I am getting off topic. Anyway, so I’m looking in the bookcases and storage section and I come across a picture of a line. It looks like a simple line and they are claiming that this line is worth $20. I’m thinking to myself that this line is probably just a small picture, or it’s a part of a larger set, anything like that. So I click on the picture to get a description and it brings up another picture of the line. That’s it. Just the line. Now I’m pretty sure that it’s a pole of some sort but really, just looking at it. I looks like they are trying to sell you a line for $20.
My shopping list so far contains pillows, book ends, storage jars, knives, steaming pitcher and some plates. I plan to keep it to that or even go so far as to not get everything on that list.

I came to the conclusion today that I generally write conversationally and therefore most of my writing is grammatically incorrect. If you want to blame anyone for that blame the English language for not having the same verbal rules as it does for it’s written grammar.
