Man, do I love Target. I doesn't matter if you walk into that store for just a greeting card; you end up leaving with three throw pillows, Easter candy, curtain rods, a sweater, and two Burt's Bees lip-glosses. Don't pretend like I'm the only one this happens to, either. I am not alone in this. But the clearance shelves -oh boy- the clearance shelves are my jam!
So here I am minding my own business, whistling my way through the clearance section, when I come across this monstrosity...
The abject confusion.
Why? Just... why? I wanted to buy every single color just so I could rearrange them all into separate jars by coloring utensil type instead of color. What kind of project could possibly necessitate eight separate coloring devices in the same shade but literally none in any other shades? Besides, who wants to be the owner of one lonely colored pencil instead of a set of them?
"Quick! Somebody get me a yellow highlighter, a yellow colored pencil, a yellow window marker, and yellow chalk RIGHT NOW! Get the h*** outta here green, I said yellow!"
