Walmart Ce Soir?

It was midnight.  The party had just finished.  Louise was 30 and the Gorgeous Gals were feeling adventurous.  I wasn't sure what the night would hold in store for us, but I knew it would be good.

We drove for a while.  There were lights shining against the black night;  A lonely Walmart.

We decided to stop and see what was going on.  A weird sight met us.  People.  Everywhere. Shopping.  It was other-worldly.  It seemed a fever had set in and no one could stop themselves from buying.

We wandered aimlessly, hoping to find something.

Louise couldn't stop herself from scanning.  Something about a lost dream of being a scanner-lady.  It was hopeless.  The pervading sense of silliness was closing in on us.  It was like we were being taken over by some strange phenomenon.  We were out of control.

The need to try on was inescapable.  We gave in.  

After what seemed like forever, we realized it was 2 a.m.  Our hunger and the coupons we had buring in our pockets beckoned to us.  We ate like there would be no tomorrow.

A strange thing happened.  Sexy food poses started cropping up.

When we re-entered the was empty.  The people had disappeared.  While we were otherwise distracted, sleep had stolen in like a thief in the night and carried them to their beds.  It was time to go.  We knew, but we didn't like it.  

We stopped one last time to capture the night.  It was a good night.  Too bad it had to end.

The End
