End of Bathing Suit Shopping
I was completely through with any bathing suit shopping for
this year. The thing is that I got pretty out of controller
with purchasing them this past summer because the catalogue
that I normally order them from had such incredible deals
that I simply kept ordering. I finally had a talk with myself
and decided it was time to cease and desist from getting any
others. Imagine my surprise when I went to the post office
this past week and there was a package for me with another
bathing suit! I had forgotten that I had ordered this particular
suit in July, and there was some problem with there being
a delay, but that I should expect to receive it in late September.
Herman brought the package back to me at home, he simply placed
it on the table and says, "Kathryn, dont you have
like, 7 or 8 bathing suits?" Im like, "well,
I actually have just 7. One for each day of the week. Why?"
I noticed that Herman was struggling to find the right words,
and when he did, he continued with, "I know you dont
like anyone to open your mail. Its just that I was so
curious as we had just had a conversation where you realized
that you were going nuts with buying bathing suits. In fact,
hadnt you just made a pact with yourself that you were
going to curtail your shopping?"
dear readers, the truth is that I had. But then this incredible
catalogue came in the mail and I was looking at this suit
that I loved and it was only 10 dollars! So what was I supposed
to do? As far as I could tell, my hands were tied. Its
not every day that you could find a bathing suit that cheap!
Im sure that some, if not all of the female readers
can relate to this problem. I tried to explain all of this
to Herman, but he really didnt get it. He tried to use
male logic on me by telling me that he only had 2 bathing
suits and that was plenty for him.
at this point that I realized that he just wasnt going
to get it. It was also at this point that I decided to go
on the offensive. "Let me just tell you this Herman.
Nobody will ever tell me what I can and cannot shop for. This
includes you. If you want to have a long and ugly argument
about this 10 dollar bathing suit, I can get just as nit-picky
with you about some of your purchases. And let me remind you
that I forget nothing. Including the prices. Herman simply
sighed and told me to enjoy my new bathing suit. Smart man.
