This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

A For-Real "Target Lady"

They really exist!

Tonight our Target cashier was so busy smelling the disposable baby washcloths we were buying that she left me to fend for myself about when to swipe my credit card. (I swiped too soon, so Lyn's coupons didn't get calculated into the purchase.) Long story short, it took twice the time to do the transaction because she had to call in "Marcella" for help on giving us credit for those coupons.

She didn't have the accent, but she definitely had "Target Lady's" enthusiasm. (She also didn't have the SNL writing staff, so the humor was negligible...but it was still comical.)

Haha! There is a lady who works at the Target by Hope who is frumpy and jolly. She has red cheeks.(Just to give you a visual.) The strange part is, no matter what or how many things you are buying, she says the name of the product as she scans it, then a long "aaaaaaaaaaaand" so it goes something like this, " dog food, aaaaaaaaaaaand milk, aaaaaaaaaaaaaand tampons, aaaaaaaaaaaaand....SO funny! Even the money exchange has the "ands". "Twenty dollars aaaaaaaaaaaaaand here's your change aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand 5 dolllars aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand 22 cents aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand don't forget your stuff, aaaaaaaaaaaaand have a nice day."
I am NOT exaggerating. You can even ask Ember. She has experienced the "aaaaaaaaaand" Target lady. :)
