This weekend we went to Sam's Club. Why? We love the smell of excessive merchandise. I walked in and to my immediate left was the CD rack. I walked casually by, when his PRESENCE was felt. I could feel him. I turned, and there it was. Rick Springfield's latest 'greatest hits' album!! There! Staring back at me with his Dr. Noah Drake eyes!! I was transfixed.

**Note: Okay, say what you want but YES there were other songs on there besides 8 renditions of "Jessie's Girl". He is multi-faceted ya know. And yes, I know, as my sister-in-law pointed out, that this "NEW" greatest hits only has like 2 new songs in it than the 'old' greatest hits that I already have. Whatever. No hating on Rick please. I will laugh, but then tell you to SUCK it because I know you listened to Milli Vanilli and had no IDEA they weren't singing. so THERE.**


I carried it, nay, I cradled it while we walked around the store. As we approached the check out line, I noticed it curled around well past the ginormous tubs of animal crackers. No way was I going to wait in line with ONE thing. These people ahead of me have months worth of mustard, and I had one item. Aaron looked at my sadness and said, "Don't worry, honey, we'll go straight to Best Buy, it will be there." (did I mention I love this man?)

Only problem was, IT WASN'T. Not at Kmart, Not at Wal-Mart. It was NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.

So now I go on in my days, mourning yet longing for the day I can make it back up to Sam's and come home with the greatest Lifetime movie actor EVER singing his greatest hits.

You go, Rick. I'll be right here waiting.

Maybe the Computer W was just hoarding your stuff: I see three new posts since I was here last (yesterday).

That was probably the last Rick CD ever. Take two Springsteens and call me in the morning.

Sweetie -- I will be going to Sam's in the next day or so because we have to stock up on the Pull Ups for the littles. If I see it there, I'll buy it for you and send it to you, ok? Seriously.

That is such a sad story. I loved him in his General Hospital Days. He's hot!
Have I told you I have this terrible affliction, it's if I don't buy something I want when I see it, I will never find it again. I swear this always happens to me.

Any female who claims to hate Rick Springfield's music is lying the themselves. "Don't Talk To Strangers" is a masterpiece (and lesson well-learned).
