It's funny how single-minded a four-year-old can be. We ran errands last night with two objectives: to find a few things at Wal-Mart, and to return movies and check more out at Blockbuster.

After fussing in the car as we parked, Laurel acknowledged we were going to Wal-Mart first and added "and we're going to get Clifford's Really Big Movie at Flockbuster!". (She mispronounces it that way; we're working on correcting it.) All through Wal-Mart, she kept talking about Clifford and Emily Elizabeth. As we buckled her in, she threw a mini-fit thinking we were going home instead, and again as we entered the parking lot diagonally opposite from the store. She even remembered exactly where the movie would be -- Kids' New Releases, in the far left corner after coming in the door.

I hope she understands that "two day rental" means it has to go back by lunchtime Thursday. If she's too heartbroken over returning it, we've got a still shrink-wrapped Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss DVD stowed away.

Wal-Mart sucks and Blockbuster sucks. Ya shoulda done Target and Hollywood Video, instead. ;-)

While we'll usually go out of our way for specific items, we are largely consumers of convenience.

Target doesn't sell fabric, which is one of the major reasons we patronize our local Wal-Mart, and most of why we were there on that errand run. (The other was to price a pair of dress pants for Vogon.)

There's one Hollywood Video in a 5-mile radius of where we live. On the other hand, there are eight Blockbuster stores in the same raidus, once of them barely a block away. One of these days we'll probably switch over to NetFlix.

I'm just giving you a hard time. Though truly do hate those establishments. But I'll shop at Wal-Mart when there's no goood substitute.

And Netflix rocks. I'd still be with them now if I had a job..
