It’s an all too familiar tale . . .
Crystal entered the store to buy slippers – and only slippers. Through no fault of her own, she came upon a “seasonal” aisle that she had to pass in order to get to those aforementioned slippers.
She told herself: Don’t even look – you don’t need more Easter decorations.
Full of resolve, she briskly moved down the aisle and was just about to take a left towards the ladies’ department when it happened . . .
There, in front of her, stood a twig tree festooned with colorful wooden eggs.
Oh how adorable! She thought.
And next, she saw the price – $6.99!!!!
This is where it gets cloudy. Somehow they hopped into her basket – of their own accord!
(What can I say? It’s tough to fight that shopping gene.) 😉
