I had a minor scarring experience a little bit ago.

And in T@rget, non the less!

I was standing in the candy aisle, contemplating over whether I should buy Mike N Ikes, Watermelon Sour Patch, or Kit Kats, and this kid, at the end of the aisle, picked up his ringing cell phone ...

(ps, never give your 10 year old a cell phone, especially when you are shopping. right. next. to. him.)

Then, at the top of his lungs, this little chubster screams,

"Oh My Gawd! Michael Jackson is Dead!"

THEN he proceeds to throw himself down on the floor prostrate, flail his arms and legs, and yell "No more moon walk, no more moon walk!"

Then, his mom, throws her hands up by her face and proclaims,

"Oh my Gawd!"

And then,

(wait for it, wait for it,)

She cries.

Tears and all.

I was in complete shock. Complete shock people.

And then, from the next aisle, I heard a stock boy start humming "Smooth Criminal."

It was SO surreal.

Also, in case you were wondering, I picked all of the candy, and ran for the cashiers. I just had to get out of there.

Weird things happen to me in stores. Remember THIS?

I don't know if the possessed, flailing kid is more disturbing or the fact that instead of getting her child off the floor, the mother starts crying. What a situation... I would have moon-walked right by the kid just to make him get up and stop being possessed...

That's a little bit extreme - he's still here through his CDs, right? And I'm sure there are videos of him doing the moon walk.
