I’m still journeying down memory lane with this post but, I’m also telling on myself. I had what is probably the biggest brain fart of my life while driving through South Dakota.😂 There are a couple of places you see a lot of signs for: one is Wall Drug, the other is 1880 Town (which is where the brain fart came in).
I was driving when a small town came into view on the horizon. Kenn said, “Oh, that must be the place we’ve seen all the signs for.” Additional signage confirmed that he was correct; we were approaching 1880 Town. My response was “Oh, it’s eighteen eighty town!” I then had to explain that for the entire drive I had been reading each sign as “1-880-Town”; I had even gotten a little annoyed, wondering why they didn’t just put the name of the attraction on the sign instead of a phone number. (Yes, I know that’s not enough numbers for a real phone number but that’s still how my brain was interpreting it.) *facepalm* Kenn got several miles of laughter out of my revelation. I hope you get a good chuckle too.
It’s amazing the things you can find when you’re waiting in line at the grocery store.😂 When I saw a can labeled “Liquid Death” I was expecting the contents to be some sort of uber-caffeinated energy drink but nope, it’s mountain water in a recyclable aluminum can.👍 (A sparkling water version was also available.) I’m a big fan of quirky and different so I was immediately hooked. “Murder your thirst.” Well played, marketing team! When I got to the car and read the rest of the can I discovered that Liquid Death also falls into my “businesses with heart” category because they donate 10% of the profits from every can sold to help kill plastic pollution which is a cause dear to my heart.
