It's not so much "whatever that means." It's whoever...

Even random Wal-Mart shoppers know the truth.

Story time! :)

     Once upon a time, I went to Wal-Mart. I happened to be wearing my BYU-Idaho t-shirt, even though at the time, I had not yet attended BYU-Idaho. I was walking toward the electronics department (pretty much the only entertaining department at Wal-Mart), when I spotted a nice sample lady giving out delicious samples. After consuming whatever delicious free food the sample lady had given me, I went to throw away my toothpick. There was a fellow sampler there trying her hardest to open the garbage can. It was one of those fancy type where you step on the pedal and the lid pops open. Well, I went over and did just that. Still wearing a somewhat confused look, she thanked me, disposed of her toothpick, and walked away. A random shopper who had been watching the whole thing said, "That's why you go to BYU-Idaho." I laughed, and agreed with him. 
     I then continued my journey to the electronics department, and not 15 seconds later, another (very nice) lady came blazing around a corner with her shopping cart and just about ran me over. She apologized quickly and hurried on her way, wherever it was she was going. A different random shopper who had seen the lady almost squash me flat said, "She goes to BYU-Provo." I really laughed this time. "That's exactly right."
     I finally got to the electronics department, but it wasn't nearly as entertaining or fulfilling after what I had just been through. After all, "life is a journey, not a destination." (-Ralph Waldo Emerson) That was probably the most epic journey to the Wal-Mart electronics department I had ever taken.

     So, when you're trying to decide which college is right for you, just take a trip to the electronics department at your local Wal-Mart. You'll find out quick which school is really the best choice. ;)

¡Ten un buen día!



  1. I agree with Jenna.

    BYU Provo girls aren't all like that, right?

  2. Hahaha. No Josie, not all Provo girls are like that. Just the ones I happened to run into that day.

    Oh...and these:



  3. Hahaha! Yes!

    First time I saw that was in a review for my biology final... that says another something about Provo... Hmmm...

  4. Haha...good ol' Provo. :P

    So, totally random, I saw the lead singer for that video in the Provo Temple baptistry today. Sister Everton, I guess. Haha...random!

  5. Uh...addition to that story, I wasn't sure if it was her, but she looked a lot like the girl in the video. I remembered her name so I could look it up later, and sure was her.

    Aren't I such a good stalker?

    Oh, Provo Utah...

  6. Haha!!! This is so cool, Joey! I laughed so hard when I read it. :D
