Y'all this was one for the books! lol
All I wanted was the orange hatted gnome.
Went to four local Aldis and only one had gnomes and it wasn't Mr. Orange but I grabbed a consolation gnome just in case lol
Then I got a tip that the Latrobe Aldi had some so I hightailed it up there and there was only one left, still not Mr. Orange, but I grabbed him and a hedgehog with a bowtie for good luck.
Was on my way to the Garfield Aldi (no gnomes!) and Paula said she just saw some at McKees Rocks and they had Mr. Orange! I asked her to pretty please grab him (and the cute lil purple wizard one too-why not!?! lol) because there was no way I would get there before he was sold because I was coming from Latrobe! Thankfully, she graciously grabbed those two and PMed me her address, I PMed her backand I was on my way!
I get to the address and went to message her that I was there and noticed that my previous message said: "I don't know where McKees Rocks is but God said I should be there in 20 minutes"
Oh my lort she must think I'm some kinda nut that I think God tells me how far away things are!!!?!?! lol so I responded:"Umm not God *GPS lol what is wrong with autocorrect altho God is kinda like GPS lol"
Mercifully she gave me the benefit of the doubt I wasn't a whackadoo and still met me for the handoff! lol
To recap my day:
- 122 Miles
- 7 Aldis
- 6 hours
- 4 gnomes
- 1 hedgehog
- 1/2 tank of gas
= totes worth it lol
Thanks again Paula for going above and beyond for your fellow Yinzer!!
And now I'm totes dead and going to bed 😂
