For some women, shopping is therapy. For me, not so much.
Take a recent trip I made to my local department store. I headed towards the entrance with my heart pounding and my head spinning, massaging my right shoulder and glancing at the piece of paper in my hand. Listed on it were my goals and objectives for the excursion.
Goal #1: Buy five reasonably priced summer tops. Three of which must be prints. Nothing in blue, black or purple. No T-shirts, solids in other colors or shirts like the ones I've been wearing for 10 years.
Goal #2: Complete the mission in one hour.
- 1. Potential hits to my checking account must be pulled from sales racks with signs that promise at least 40 percent off.
- 2. No sidetracking, except to the ladies room.
- 3. Clothing must be tried on in the store. No return trips or unworn shirts hanging in the closet.
- 4. Stay out of the juniors department. (Why do I go there? What's wrong with me?)
