I was shopping at Goodwill the other day with my Mom & the three boys. On my list was a possible dress for Easter, shorts for Gray, and I had also promised the boys they could pick out a toy. This is the place to do that versus, say, Target because most of the toys here are fifty-cents or a dolllar at most!
Strolling down the aisle my mom whispers "I just saw Sanjaya." But my excited 6-year old that watches American Idol didn't "get" the whole whisper part and says so very loud "Sanjaya?! Where's Sanjaya!?" I Shhh him and my mom, who is now not helping things and laughing at him (encouraging him- thanks, Mom!) So I shuffle them all several aisles away from the Sanjaya look-alike. Noah still didn't get it. "Where's Sanjaya?"
Mind you, this was on Wednesday somewhere in Indiana, and that night was the live results show on American Idol. I promise you, it was not really Sanjaya. He could, however, easily be his twin. Apparently he worked there and apparently he overheard us (how could he not?) In the dress aisle he comes singing along and smiling, pretending to straighten the clothes or something. I think he was enjoying the attention. Now I wish I would have pulled the camera out of my purse and taken a picture. Oh well.
We did have a couple other big finds. A Darth Vader costume for $3, complete with helmet, cape, and working voice thingy to sound like Darth Vader. I also found several pairs of shorts for Gray, and two dresses for me! One is nice & simple from Ann Taylor Loft and the other will be my Easter dress!
And now I can't do a post about Sanjaya without linking to this hilarious bit about him on SNL last week...
Sanjaya, please do us all some good will and either start singing like you deserve to be in the Top 9 (I honestly think he may have it in him if he tried) or just stop the joking and go home already!
