About politics and other things
January 16, 2013 | 1,446 views | 1 comment

Usually it’s politics, but today I’m writing about the “other.” Not that there aren’t plenty of political subjects to write about -- actually, there are too many, so that it’s hard to know where to begin.

But there’s another reason for writing about “other” and that is that the same ol’ politics can become tiresome. Sometimes it’s necessary to take a break and breathe in a little fresh air.

Go shopping. The politics will still be there when we come back!

Here’s my “other” story. Saturday night I went to H-E-B to find a couple of things. First on my list was some plain old nondescript nail polish remover. Wouldn’t you know, I couldn’t find this one very essential item. I did find rows and rows of every other kind of makeup, hair treatment, and other stuff to keep you young and make you beautiful. At least that’s what the labels say.

I wandered up and down the three aisles several times, glancing over the items. While I didn’t find the nail polish remover, I did make some other interesting discoveries. I loaded my shopping cart with, among other things, “intense i-color” shadow stick, pencil, and eyeliner, all designed to “intensify the color of your eyes!” ... we’ll see.

Another find was the “Visible Lift” foundation with a brush for “flawless, weightless coverage.” What really sold me on it, however, was its “age-reversing” qualities! This was proving to be an expensive shopping trip.

Next came the hydrating shampoo and volumizing conditioner in the super-sexy bottles and the Elnett Satin hair spray used by the finest stylists. It’s in a tall slender, shiny gold can. My family already knows that I buy things based on the container. For instance, our refrigerator is stocked with beer that nobody drinks, but I love the shape or color of the bottles and the carton.

Anyway, I found all these goodies and still no nail polish remover. As I made one more sweep, I came upon a bin of specially priced nail polish. I quickly found two bottles to add to my stash and continued on my quest.

Finally, there it was! Nestled right between the false eyelashes (I didn’t know H-E-B had those) and the cotton balls. I purchased one bottle of regular strength nail polish remover. Just what I was looking for!

I continued my shopping, obviously not in a hurry, as there was nothing but football on television. It was a leisurely trip. When I finally arrived back home and unloaded my loot, I saw that the football game was still on.

I got to work. First, to remove the old polish with my trusty, dependable pale-yellow bottle of remover. It seems that the shape of the bottle never changes. Smaller on the top and the base broadens out. It’s one of the few products that you can find that is not constantly “new and improved.”

Now, to apply the new nail polish. H-m-m-m. Which one? Do I try the essie nail lacquer? “In Stitches” is the color, or maybe I should try the Nicole by O-P-I. The color is “Enchantress NI 148.” It’s really nice, but the shape of the bottle is even cuter.

Yes, it definitely has to be the Enchantress NI 148.

That’s it. Politics can wait until my nails dry. Then I’ll put on the news on the other television to see if I missed anything. Nope. Same ol’ stuff. Politics will be back next week.

Yes, let's stimulate the economy. We can all go shopping. Forget politics. It stinks.
