What 8 Months?
My bad. Again. Moving on.
So, here in the land of Iwakuni we have limited American shopping options. And when I say limited, I mean we have The Exchange. The Exchange hates me. I want some tiki torches, so of course, there are none at The Exchange. I proceed to my default second option, Target.com. It can never be as good as stepping in to a brick and mortar Target and getting smacked in the face by the smell of popcorn and seeing all of that shiny, pretty red, but you take what you can get.
So, I find some tiki torches online. I like them. I put them in my virtual shopping cart. I go to check out, but no. There will be no shipping of the tiki torches to APO/FPO addresses. WHAT?! So, frantically, I check Amazon, Lowe’s, and Home Depot only to be shot down again and again.
I thought about taking my neighbors’, but it’s an awfully small base and I’m sure I’d get caught. I could ask The Exchange if they’ll be getting any more tiki torches this summer, but I’d have to talk to 95 people before one of them would finally give me the wrong answer, so I’m stuck checking in every few days to see if some miracle has occurred and they actually have something people want to buy. Besides Roxy purses, because they usually have an awesome collection of those. Until I see them anyway…
