With These Words, I Will Also Steal Your Heart
February 1, 2007 § 1 Comment
Scott and I went to Target recently for various odds and ends: soda, paper towels, Namibian babies … the usual daily necessities.
Now, another important aspect of this story is that I’m currently embroiled in a torrid love affair with oversized handbags. I’m talking huge, gigantic purses that can carry my Sidekick, my iPod, my wallet, my makeup, my sunglasses, my lunch, a spare pair of shoes, and a pashmina (plus my the Namibian baby’s diapers, pacifier, etc.).
I’m talking about purses so big that if you put them in the basket of the cart as you wander around Target, you may forget about some of the things that have slipped under the purse.
And if you don’t pick up the purse until you leave the store, you may find that you’ve accidentally shoplifted.
Just a pair of earrings. And you should keep them.
But only because you have no choice; you can’t go back into the store and confess because the Namibian baby is colicky and it’s really just time to go home.
