Crazy Glue, a sack of dog food and a half gallon jug of whiskey at 8.oo in the morning.

I got the funny look, I told him the dog food and whiskey was for breakfast and he didn't even want to know what the Crazy Glue was for.

OMG! We can certainly get some funny combinations. I chuckled at a few of these.

The Walmart where I live is located right next to the Fairgrounds and show arenas, so it's not unusual for people to show up and buy things in their show clothes, or in their barn work clothes, with a shopping list that contains Vaseline/petroleum jello, baby wipes, hair spray, hair nets, WD-40, and hair ties.

See, in my town, when you go
In subway for lunch there are at least two jockeys, a catch rider, two dressage trainers and four other people in jods. At least three others will be in chaps and boots from riding cattle and the rest are used to us, they are the weirdos.

haha these are great!
most recently, at a grocery store before a hunter pace (buying breakfast) a man approached me and my friends and asked if we had been to a horse show early this morning? (it was 6:00 AM) we said we were on our way to a hunter pace and he looked at my jacket(i had fallen off a few days ago in it and hadn't had time to clean it) and said "i just figured because of her jacket!" LOL, my friends still wont drop it(:

Haha, too funny. All I ever got was "wow, what are you having for dinner tonight?" after buying 15lbs of carrots.

People still look at me funny when I go to get a slurpee while taking a break from riding horses. Mud on my face, spurs on, hay in my hair and twine in my back pocket. And in the summer I'll also kill two birds with one stone : tanning while riding. So slurpee run in a bikini top, cut off short shorts, cowboy boots and spurs, hay in my hair, and streaked in dirt. I'm not ashamed of my horsey-ness what so ever lol. Winter time, I'll stop at the bar for a beer wearing big winter riding boots and chaps, a toque over my hat, and multiple jackets.
I once stopped at walmart to get a huge jar of diaper rash cream, vaseline, mineral oil, huge bottle of vegetable oil and ice cream lol

You'd think the cashiers at walmart would be desensitized to the odd combinations of the things people buy.

I guess my oddest combination, that I can remember anyway, was a drill, hoolahoop, a bag of chips and canned dog food. I was also wearing the dirty clothes I had been working in all day and my boots. What I find the funniest, though, is that my nails were freshly manicured, long, had bright pretty polish on them and even a little flower painted on them. I could tell by the look on his face that he wanted to say something. He didn't though.

On a few occasions I have bought human psyllium products for the horses. Several large plastic containers of it all at once. I would just go through the check-out line like normal but my Mom always felt compelled to explain to the cashier it was for the horses. Um, yes, I guess we have a minor constipation problem, lol!

And at foaling time, yes I have bought enemas and KY jelly all in the same purchase. Doesn't everyone?

My latest greatest find was a 50 lb bag of carrots at the grocery store. I carted that up to the cashier with a big grin on my face.
