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.
She might have gotten by them, but suddenly she noticed how cute they looked in their package.
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.) 😉
