The girls head out to the local Piggly Wiggly to do some extreme couponing. You guys, I haven’t seen a Piggly Wiggly since grade school. I didn’t even know they were still around. All of our grocery stores have been bought out by Kroger and Publix. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Kroger. That discount card saves you 10 cents a gallon on gas, plus our Kroger has an in-store butcher and he is awesome. Especially since my husband loves to grill more than anything else. Which is why I got him this for his birthday a couple of weeks ago:
I am now known in our neighborhood as the best wife ever!
Chubs hates couponing. At first I thought it was because shew as embarrassed by the cheapness, even though she says that it’s because they have to spend so much time in the store. Then, I realize that she obviously isn’t embarrassed because she not only addresses June’s neck crust issues (we’ll discuss it later), she also pulls a Milania and is standing in a shopping cart and dancing around. That is, until she falls out of the cart and flat on her ass. And since Chubs is pretty much the 12-year-old boy of the family, I didn’t have any problem laughing at her.
Yeah, I don’t think this one embarrasses easily at all.
Anyway, Alana loves the coupons because it translates to money for her pageants. Plus, she gets to push the buggy.
As June is counting out packages of Nestle Quick, Ramen Noodles, and mustard, Chubs comes running up with rust remover. She says it’s perfect for getting rid of the crust on MamaJune’s neck.
Let’s talk about that for a minute Gasmii. When an extremely obese person bathes, they have to take extra care to clean between the folds of their flesh. Every person builds up a certain amount of grime during a normal day. But, an extremely obese person is at a disadvantage because that grime, along with sweat can build up in the folds. This is normal but can be a problem if ignored. Not to gross anyone out, but it could lead to fungal growths and even sores if not taken care of on a regular basis (plus there is an odor involved).
I find it interesting in June’s case because she does seem aware enough of the problem that it isn’t consistent. Yes, there was the gross shot of it at the grocery store, but it isn’t noticeable in the majority of her scenes. That leads me to think it is another TLC set up. I’m going to pretend that it was done just to teach us something about extreme obesity and not to exploit June’s weight issues.
