Or that’s what this display at a gas station I went to yesterday might have you believe.
Turning down this aisle from a previous one that included the usual blend of snack foods whose ingredients fall into one of two general categories (sugar or salt), I couldn’t help but laugh. I pulled out my camera so I wouldn’t forget what has to be the oddest combination of items ever displayed in close proximity.
Noticing the strange juxtaposition, I immediately began to formulate theories as to how these various items came to be grouped as they were.
Could it be construed as, “If only you’d used a condom, you wouldn’t find yourself up all night vainly trying to sooth your crying baby’s teething pain?”
Or was is more hopeful than that? “Hey! Up all night? Soothe that crying baby and get some action At The Same Time!”
The most intriguing possibility was that using topical “numbing agents” was a sort of poor man’s erectile enhancement, and when coupled with condoms and caffeine, made for an impressively active all-nighter!
I guess if you’re going to be up all night, you have to make the most of it.
