The other day I made a snarky comment about people who act like owning a couple of Coach bags is some sort of positive reflection of their value as a person. I picked Coach bags sort of at random, but also because I own a couple myself and I figure if I'm going to be insulting I may as well insult myself first, especially since, you know, I'm not really like that. It was more the attitude than the item that I was getting at. But then.
I ran out at lunch today to pick up a couple things for my vacation next week and I very nearly bought myself a new Coach bag while I was out. This was not because I really liked the bag, oh no, but only because it was on sale. I saw Coach and 25% off and I got a little light-headed and may have blacked out for a second and the next thing I knew I was heading towards the register with an ugly pink purse in my outstretched arms like a zombie on the scent of fresh brains. I snapped out of it. I put the purse down and backed away slowly with my hands in clear view. I am truly contrite and ready to pay my debt to society.
Nice to meet you Kettle, I'm Pot.
On a totally unrelated subject, Saturday is my fifth anniversary and I do not have so much as a card for my husband. We decided not to do gifts this year since the trip to NYC is costing plenty, thank you very much, but I do want to have something to give him. Just a little thing, to show I, like, care, or something. Problem is that he is impossible to buy for and I have no idea what to get. Anybody have any recommendations? Or, I know! How about if one of you just sort of casually asked him what he might like and then told me? Please? Somebody? Just don't tell him that I asked or what it's for. Thanks!
