Ummm did we just manage to find two soul mates lost and separated by a few states? Yeah, take that sh*t eHarmony! We did it for free and without even trying.

You know what’s awesome about a 35 year old afro? Everything. Yeah, didn’t think I was going there did you? Think about it though, (1) afros are sweet, (2) toss on sunglasses and you are completely in disguise, and (3) she probably still gets a contact high from smoke still lingering in there from the 70’s.
Oh what’s that crazy guy? You saw a double rainbow? Nobody is impressed. I just saw a double Bam Bam Bigelow! Put that sh*t on YouTube for a million hits!
So this new Walmart was opening just down the road from my high school. It received a lot of news coverage because it took up a whole bunch of land and people were worried about the social status of having a Walmart in a mainly conservative town; what they didn’t realize is how many jobs it created… anyways, I guess my principal decided that for the grand opening the band, color guard, and choir should all go down the street and perform for all the costumers. So the store opened at like 9:00 am on a tuesday so the band, color guard and choir got in the school busses and headed to Walmart. I was part of the choir so, yes I had to go to this opening. We got there and unloaded off the busses and walked in. Near the produce section next to a stand full of ripe strawberries was a small stage. We soon realized there were no costumers the whole audience was Walmart employees or like people who worked for the walmart corporation higher up. We also found out we weren’t the only people to put on a show. There was also the city’s baseball team mascot and a local university’s cheer team. so after some old guy spoke about the new Walmart he introduced us and we sang the national anthem and then the band played followed by the cheer team. All of the students got really excited because now that we were finished we could go shop, but our choir director said we must go back to school and that we couldn’t shop so there was only one good thing about singing at the opening of a walmart… skipping school!
