Guitar hero...

ring ring, ring ring..

"hello, this is Betty, can I help u find something?"

"yes, can you tell me if you have the special edition guitar from Def Leppard?"

"hmm, not sure, let me transfer you to the toy dept."

"..whoa whoa, this is NOT a toy honey, I said its a guitar"

" yes, but its a toy, right"

" your kidding me with this shit right.?...its not a toy, its a know, it has six strings, an amp, makes music, la la la..a guitar"

"Let me transfer you to toys"

" WAIT, no...its NOT a toy...put thru to electronics for Gods sake"

"Electronics, can I help u find something?"

" yes u have the guitar from Def Leppard, the limited edition one"

" yup, we have two, and we are only getting two, and we can not hold them, as they are a limited edition item."

"you suck"

So me and hubby make a B line for Target......hoping they still had some..

Kinda disappointing when we got there...

For someone else..

Then there was one..


Not sure what I am going to do with it, hell I don't even know how to put the strap on..

Just gonna sit it in my corner and gaze at it lovingly, till the day I die..


Someone is getting lucky tonight..

Hell yeah bitches..

Haphazardkat said...

I sorta froze when you wrote "I don't know how to put the strap on"
then I snickered uncontrollably for 10 minutes.
Then I had to re-read your post--but got stuck on the strap on part again and snickered for another 10 minutes.
...eventually I'll get to the end.
ha ha ha haha

Flip Flop Momma said...

three cheers for him..haha

Jessica Foster said...

Way to go rock chick! If you don't take lessons then I say "mount" it. Hey, quit thinking dirty! Hang it on the wall. Do a kick ass montage with Def Leppard memorabilia.

aatank said...
