Puzzling Visit To Walgreens

I was at Walgreens tonight making my weekly drugstore run. I have become oddly enamored with drugstores lately for some reason unbeknownst to me. In particular, I like the CVS by my work. I usually stop by there once a week or so, pick up the sundries that I need (self tanner, face lotion, the occasional lip gloss or birthday card) and wander the aisles to look at other items that I don't need at all (TrimSpa, the nutrition facts on circus peanuts, eggs filled with pantyhose.) After making a quick stop at RiteAid on my way home and deciding I will never go there again due to overall lack of general product, I swung into Walgreens. I picked up a few items (Burt's Bees for the Mister, Ziploc sandwich bags) and perused the remaining aisles for a couple of additional things. In my search, I noticed that they still sell the following:Whaaa? They really still sell La Jean Nate? No you didn'! As a matter of fact, Revlon still has an entire website dedicated to the product. Holy rollers, I didn't know JN had such a cult following. Much to my delight, Walgreens also carries this wedge/ramp combo made by Liberator Bedroom Adventure Gear. Available in blue, red and black! Um, when did the drug store turn into the porn store, that's what I want to know. Comes complete with "gig bag" (????) and 100-page position guide.Last but not least, I had to find Q-Tips. I cannot survive a morning routine without these little babies. However, I could not find the usual branded box of Q-Tips I prefer, so I was forced to buy this Brady Bunch-sized bag of swabs. Until next week's shopping adventure...

That's funny about the porn stuff & the Brady Bunch sized Q tips! I want to go to Walgreens b/c I saw some ad or something in a magazine about this hair spray looking aerosol spray can of water to moisturize the face. The black & white can was so cute that I just gotta have it!

Les, you KNOW Walgreens is one of my absolute FAVORITE stores! WEll, its the only big pharmacy chain we have here in STL. No CVS or thank gawd, RiteAid. I just love stocking up on cotton rounds, self-tanner and razors! I'm laughing histerically at your Q tip bag!! Maybe you'll run out when your 50! If I need to borrow one, I'll know who to ask!

Um, I'm not miss inocent, but I am slightly confused as to what one does with that blue thing. And is that really allowed to be sold in a drug store?

I stop at Walgreen's or CVS at least 3 times a week. You can always find something you need or not! ;)
