A Red Metal Dinosaur

I searched everywhere for the Tyrantrum, a Pokémon toy that has craggy auburn rock-like scales covering most of its body and this store is my last hope of finding one.  Personally, I hate Pokémon, but when a six-year-old wants something, there is no reasoning with him.  Wesley is my great nephew and I would like to make him happy on Christmas morning, but I think that Pikachu is rotting away the brains of the children today, but since I never had any kids, I really don’t know much about them.  I am sure that watching the Three Stooges when I was young didn’t do too much to increase my brain level activity and it is possible that because I grew up on this stuff, this is the reason that I want to strangle Pokémon and all of his cohorts.

First off, if this store does have a Tyrantrum, I need to get to the toy aisle, as I am sure that this Personal Care Products aisle with deodorant, shampoo, oral care, feminine products, hand soap, body soap, shaving needs, sexual wellness products and personal use products is not going to have one.  OK there is a sign for toys, now where is that red metal dinosaur.  I watched the Flintstones when I was a kid and I always thought that dinosaurs were cute.  Jackpot, the last one left on the shelf and my Christmas shopping list is now complete.

    1. Thanks Sadje. I think that KL made a mistake when she wrote, “For visually challenged writers, the image shows a red metal dinosaur in amongst the trees, beside a clearing”, but I just ran with that. I did notice that Di of pensitivity101 wrote, “For the visually impaired reader, the photo shows a supermarket aisle from a customer’s point of view as they push an empty trolley”, which seems more accurate, but I guess it really doesn’t matter.

  1. Haha clever use of the dinosaur, Jim. It was an old prompt description from when I copied and set up the new prompt. Too much hurry, glad something so creative came out of it thought, well done! KL<3

    1. Thanks KL. I suspected that was what happened as I didn’t notice a red metal dinosaur in that store, but I thought that there might be one if that store also had a toy aisle.
