The Pink Aisle

As the parents of a confirmed girlie-girl who we lovingly refer to as Engineering Barbie, we spent a lot of time in the “Pink Aisle” of Toys ‘R” Us. I know you are envisioning this in your head right now, so I probably don’t need to explain it to you.

Since it’s my blog, I’m feeling that I can get up on my soapbox and complain about the commercial excess with which we are surrounded. In the last six months I have surreptitiously (and horrified-ly) taken a photo of Halloween stuff in July, Christmas stuff in September, and now a huge section of Target entirely devoted to Valentine’s Day. At least it’s almost February so it’s kind of timely. I haven’t been in Target since before Christmas, so I probably would have been equally horrified to find Valentine’s Day candy and decorations replacing the Christmas items in December.

What kind of people have we Americans become? Do we really consume all of this candy and junk? Apparently we do if Target is willing to devote this much space to it.

Gives a new meaning to OMG.

  1. OMG is soooo right! I can’t stand how it comes out sooo soon. I did see them clearing aisles in December for Valentines Day stuff.

    Craziness. :-/

    My biggest pet peeve is the playing of Christmas songs before Thanksgiving. It’s just wrong the day after Halloween.

  4. Now, as a greeting, the handshake was used not as a forced stunt
    for health’s sake alone. This appears to be the one who lifts the
    mood of the band. You have to go for mitigation and get the truth, kindness,
    compassion, empathy and other traits combine tto create human character?
