The odds of going to the store for a loaf of bread and coming out with only a loaf of bread are three billion to one

Things are going really well at work. And I have brought home two paychecks already. Being out of work for so long has definitely brought my expenses down and taught me to live on less. Which means, happily, that I can now go shopping. For myself. That is something I haven’t done in years and years. So on Saturday I went shopping and got my nails done and got a pedicure. Pure heaven. Also a learning experience.

Things I Learned Shopping At A Place Called K*ohl’s:

  • I see why no one ever told me about this store. It is a dangerous place. I had never been inside and now? I may never come out.
  • I may have a previously undiagnosed shoe addiction. My flip flops had to move out!
  • That could be because the shoes from the ‘cheap’ store aren’t as comfortable or as cute.
  • I don’t have enough money to buy one of everything.
  • But I could very well have tried on one of everything.
  • Vera Wang has exactly my taste. And I should charge her rent for all the stuff she is now storing in my closet.
  • I never understood how someone could pay $38 for a bra. Now I know: if it is well made and fits well it doesn’t actually hurt to wear it. I am impressed.
  • I cleaned out my closet and noticed I am was wearing clothes I bought in Utah. And I haven’t lived there since 1998.
  • The Goodwill is going to love me. Or hate me.
  • I clearly need work on making difficult choices. Or a second job and a bigger closet.
  • The cashier said “I’d ask you if you found everything you needed today, but I can see you did just fine.”
  • This could be a problem.

Heat, ma’am! it was so dreadful here, that I found there was nothing left for it but to take off my flesh and sit in my bones
