Editor’s Note: We at the Impulsive Buy would like to wish all of our regular readers a very Merry Christmas. We hope your holiday is filled with good times with family and friends.
We also hope it is filled with awesome gifts that you don’t have to return, although most likely you will have to return some because they are either too big or totally lame.
Here at the Impulsive Buy all we want for Christmas is just more stuff to review or gift cards to buy stuff to review.
Finally, as our crappy Christmas gift to all of our readers, we present to you “‘Twas The Day Before Christmas: The Impulsive Buy Edition”
â€˜Twas the day before Christmas, I had nothing to review.
Holy crap! What the hell was I supposed to do?
I looked in the cupboard, which was almost bare,
Except for a cup of ramen noodles on the top shelf there.
â€œOh, hell no,â€ I said shaking my head with disgust on my face.
Even though I bought the ramen so I could review it in the first place.
Creamy Alfredo Ramen Noodles, I bought it over a month ago.
It was so cheap, it only took 33 cents of my dough.
I boiled water for this ramen flavor Iâ€™ve never had before.
Pulled back the lid of the ramen to smell what was in store.
Took a quick whiff and then closed the lid as quickly as I could.
Then I said a quick prayer, got my rabbitâ€™s foot, and knocked on wood.
â€œPeople actually eat this stuff,â€ I couldnâ€™t believe.
It smelled so bad that I let out a few dry heaves.
If I canâ€™t stand the stench, I wonder what eating it would entail.
No wonder it was labeled â€œReduced Price for Quick Sale.â€
I let it sit for the instructed three minutes, after I added the hot aqua.
But I let it sit for another five, as I prepared to eat something I didnâ€™t wanna.
Taking deep breaths, meditating, and affirmations didnâ€™t help.
â€œDo it for your readers,â€ I said to try and encourage myself.
I peeled back the lid and looked at the milky white mess.
Ooh, a whole 1,370 milligrams of sodium goodness.
The aroma of the Alfredo Ramen came up to my face.
I had a few garbage cans next to me, just in case.
After a few more dry heaves, I think I was ready to consume.
If it smells bad, itâ€™s gonna taste bad, I was going to assume.
I picked up my fork and gave the Alfredo Ramen a stir.
It really looked like vomit in a cup, I so badly wanted to defer.
The first bite was not bad, but it could have been a total fluke.
I took a second bite, â€œOh, man. It was. I think Iâ€™m going to puke.â€
Tried to force myself to eat a third, but my body wouldnâ€™t take the risk.
I put down my fork, because I had more than enough of this.
I went to the sink and poured the Alfredo Ramen down the drain.
If only the garbage disposal had taste buds, it would know my pain.
After a few spins of the garbage disposal, it was all disintegrated.
But even with all of it gone, I still felt so nauseated.
So I sprang to my car and headed to the nearest drive-thru.
A burger and fries will help me cope with what Iâ€™ve just been through.
After eating fast food and getting some rest, I began to feel all right,
Merry Christmas to all and avoid Alfredo Ramen for the rest of your life.
