I also did my research last night to see when and where I could get CFTH at the earliest possible time. HMV had it listed, so by 11:00 a.m. I was there, wandering around, looking through a store with nary a Christmas CD in sight … gah, I had to ask for it.
Me: “Where would I find a new release?”
Dude: “What genre?”
Dude: “Oh, Bob Dylan’s newest?”
Me: “Uhh, well, no … David Archuleta.”
Dude: “Oh, we were supposed to get five copies but they’re not here yet.”
Me: “Five copies!?! Five?? I kinda need about 10 copies.”
Dude: “We’ll get more closer to Christmas … it’s only October.”
Yes, it is only October, but I want David’s Christmas CD now! So I begin the trek across town to the dreaded store I never shop at (except for David music it seems) — Wal-Mart.
Beelined straight to the entertainment section, and there I see Mr. Elderly Stockboy with my CD in his hands. Eureka! I did not hesitate to take six copies, and politely asked if this is all they had. He replied that they would get more if stock is depleted, I smiled and told him, that yes it is depleted, but I’ll leave a few and come back later (could not bare to leave the shelf empty.)
No memories of the drive home….
David was born to do this…to sing from his heart and soul, and all I need to do today … is listen, and I know of so many hearts listening right along with me….
