DAY 60: Items Purchased: 0, Temptation Radar: 9 (Man, I just want to BUY sumpin’!!!)
Steve and I went to Nordstrom for date night. Smart. Real Smart. It could be likened to one dangling a steak in front of a starving lion. I won’t discuss all of the various items I stared, loved, caressed and left behind. However, I admit that it was rather painful and very difficult this time. Never fear, I eventually ate my woes in the form of an enormous Kobe Burger, cooked medium rare, and an order of Bang Bang shrimp. Prior to the gluttony, Steve was able to secure a pair of shoes for Owen, which was the reason we ventured out in the first place. I reminded him on more than one occasion during our shopping that it was completely permissible for him to buy moi something and actually encouraged, according to the shopfast playbook. He, as usual, did not take the bait, smiled and escorted me safely to the vehicle. This, of course, after frisk and bag check.
So, there you have it. My short-lived shopping excursion was adequately proctored and I remain triumphant. For some strange reason though, I left the mall clutching Steve’s hand and humming this old 80s tune by Rockwell, “I always feel like Somebody’s watchin’ me…..”
