lub lub lub. or is it lube lube lube?

I woke up this morning and found a McDonald's cheeseburger, a pack of Reese's peanut butter cups, and a box of KY Yours + Mine lubricant in my purse. My favorite part about this collection is that the KY was stolen from a vendor table at the BlogHer cocktail party held in Macy's. Look, don't judge me, stealing the lub had to be done for many reasons:
  • The commercials for that stupid lub made me curious enough to check it out in Target, but then I immediately recoiled in horror when I saw that it cost over $20. I'm willing to spend $20 on a lot of stupid things, but for something that is getting mixed reviews and might possibly burn my girl bits? I think not.

  • KY sponsored the portion of the cocktail party on the lingerie floor, but then was only giving out teeny tiny samples of lubricant. Okay a small sample of expensive lub is better than none, but the samples weren't of the Yours + Mine; they were some other lub that I'm assuming retails for much less. But then they had a display of the Yours + Mine sitting on a table, looking all tempting and free. But as soon as you picked up a box a rep would kindly inform you that those are just for show, please set it back down and how about a little tiny sample of this cheaper product to take home? If that's not asking for someone to steal a box I don't know what is.

  • I have never shoplifted a thing in my life, but now I sort of have. I mean, the lub was in a Macy's and I removed it from there without paying for it, so shoplifting! Yay, I am badass! And I didn't just steal anything, I stole $20 lub! That's the equivalent of stealing a Louis Vuitton purse. I mean, if you're going to start a life of crime, you might as well go big, right?


    1. I think you had no other choice BUT to steal the lube.

      It was great meeting you :-)

    2. Wow, a cheeseburger in your purse? Now that's resourceful. I'm going to have to remember that one.

      Congratulations on your first shoplifting gig! ha! Serves them right for being stingy on the samples!

    3. Ooooh thievery! How did you manage to make off with it without being seen? I want the details.

    4. People are finding all kinds of stuff this weekend. I'm a little afraid to look in the garage.

    5. Regan, I am totally shocked!! You return a diamond ring you found at the gym and then you steal a $20 product?!?! Remind me to lock up my valuables next time you come over to visit ;-)

      Hope you had fun at the conference!

    6. That is so worse than stealing Cheetos.

    7. Okay - well, I saw them give someone the lube, so I think you're okay.

      Personally, I'm really annoyed that I am at work today, I had no chance last night to unpack my lube.
