Act now while supplies last

This weekend, while flipping through our mail fliers in search of coupons, I stumbled upon these gems:

After telling Jerry I want an activity apron in every color for Christmas -- maybe two of the coffee cups in case one is in the wash -- he grabbed it from my hands to get a closer look.

"SIZES TO 5X!" he said. "Women that big aren't doing enough activities to warrant an apron! That's just a place for them to store their grilled cheese!"

Be the one to light up their faces. Because the emaciated, bloodied child vampire bride at your door could seriously use a smile.

Those smocks are the exact reason my daughter and I decided to make her art smock for school.

Store bought ones are SO ugly!

In 5X, one pocket is for the remote and the other for the candy so that they can have it at easy reach.

^^Jerry's comment was great. And a child vampire bride----hmmm cool costume. Hehe. =o) Have you decided on what costume you'll be making for Allison yet?

Take, care.

Never heard of "activity apron" but an elementary school teacher used to call them smocks, (SMOCK is a funny word!), but I think they were just regular old aprons... Clearly the fit vampire bride is headed for a successfull career as fashion model or actress, give her double candy... My paper did not have any of those ads, just a Ben & Jerry's maze to get the cow to the pint of ice cream, so she can order a large 5X smock, perhaps...

Guess that we are showing a bit of insensitivity to those who need to order the larger sized smocks, though...
