This is going to be a very un-PC post. You have been warned.
I was at my local Wal-Mart a few nights ago, looking for 'green slime' for Vicki's bicycle tires. We found the slime and a combination lock so she can ride to school. On the way to the check-out, however, I was delighted to see a display of red and white bears for Valentine's Day. I love these silly little bears! Here's the problem: not one of them was printed in English! They were all printed in Spanish! Arrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!!!!!!! I could not find any bears that simply said, "I love you" or "Happy Valentine's Day". Instead, this is what I found:
I had them translated, too, for those of us who didn't feel the need to take Spanish class in high school. The first one says, "I love you" and the second one: "Kisses and hugs". So, if you decide to buy a Spanish love bear, at least you now have the translation.
Apparently I have to seek out the English-speaking Valentine's day display at Wally's, now. When will it end? Press 1 for English, seek out english-printed bears in the store, hablamos espanol????? I know some will say that I shouldn't live in Arizona if I feel this way, but I hate to tell you poor misdirected souls...it's not just in the southwest! It's the same thing throughout the whole country!
OK...I'm off my soapbox now. Thanks for reading!
