I hate to shop. I have mentioned this a bazillion times. But I need new clothes so I have to shop.
Or do I?
I have been telling myself I don’t NEED anything new. I can keep wearing what I have despite the tightening and tearing. When material starts pilling, that’s a sign. Eff your sign Jeff Foxworthy.
Now what did poor ole Jeff ever do to me?
Any who, my point is that NEED is a strong word. I mean really. Do I NEED new clothes? I wonder where Fred is when I need him? Fred would agree. No to new clothes!
Yesterday I pulled two dresses, a pair of pants and a shirt off the rack. Took them home. Tried them on. Said bleh, bleh, bleh as I looked in the mirror and promptly took them back earlier today. Good thing this is a WANT and not a NEED. Heaven help me when the real (as opposed to fake) time comes. I am going to have to hire someone to help me.
Helen has given us a lovely prompt “THINK” And yes I wish desperately sometimes that I could shut my thoughts off. No more what if, should have, supposed to. Enough!
I have been part of #SLS duplicates these last few weeks and while I am honored that great minds THINK alike, I wanted to make sure I gave a stand alone entry this week. Competitive much? Why yes, yes I am. But primarily with myself.
I decided to go my own way and post a song that I play when I get in that head space and need to shake it off. You guys were almost serenaded with T Swift. But then I decided that was too easy and continued to THINK. At first I could not land on just one song. For me picking a favorite is impossible to choose. Then boom. Remembering Cat who fought until the end.
