Almost stripped at Walmart
« on: October 08, 2006, 06:54:00 PM »
I went to Walmart today and while I was in line to pay..it hit...and boy did it hit...a HOT flash. The mother of all hot flashes. I thought I was gonna have to take off my clothes. I was fanning myself with the new shower curtain i was buying( it was in a plastic pkg). It was so bad I was moaning. The guy in front of me kept turning around looking at me and I finally said WHAT!  He said my wife has those too and right now I am very afraid. I busted out laughing and so did the lady running the register.

I need one of those little battery operated personal fans. But I doubt if i can find them now since its fall. Have to check eBay.

OMG!!!  Between the subject line and then saying you got a hot flash...I thought some hot guy flashed you at WalMart!  But then the brunette side of my brain kicked in...DUH!

I had one of those fans, the kind with a little squirt bottle so you get the moisture as well as the wind.  I gave it to my officemate, who was flashing every 20 minutes and had no A/C in her car.  She still has it a year and a half later, and still uses it!

I think my mom sells them on her website.  Let me check and I'll repost.

Oh Teresa,  How I cannot identify, but feel for you... The closest I ever got to a hot flash was when a red haired, red faced, red dressed, red shoed lush kicked me in my NUTS and put me down for about 10 minutes...  I hope its not as bad as a "Nut shot".. Hope your all better honey!!

OK, checked it out and mom has one but it's 14.99 + 3.00 shipping.  I looked on eBay and yu can get one for 10.29, buy it now, from a seller who has 99.8% approval, so that'd probably be better.  I searched with "personal fan mist" and saw some there on eBay.  Good luck!  May The Force (of wind) be with you!
