Compulsive Shopping
Gon purchased his first Digital Camcorder today after going to the store to pick up some simple "needed" items. Jeez, talk about compulsive shoppers! To think I even felt the slightest bit guilty when I bought a new bathing suit last week.

Anyhoo, compulsiveness is one psychosis all in itself - there is something deeper and more sinister that concerns me enough to share.

Here is the first photo he had taken on the Camcorder:

It is a picture of the Wal-mart parking lot!!!!

To get a better sense of this madness consider these few facts:
  • It was a steamy 94 degrees for most of the afternoon.

  • Thanks to the new Truman Parkway entrance on Whitfield, the new Super-Walmart is only 5 minutes away from home. (If that.)

  • The camcorder came in one of those theft protective cases. You know, the kind that need a hacksaw to even get into when you do bring the purchase home? This means he broke a sweat and perhaps his copy of our house key, to break the package open.

  • It didn't come charged or with batteries, so he had to put them in. (If he remembered to buy them and if not, my bet is he ran back into the Wal-mart for them. Never mind we have a fresh case of high end double-A batteries here in the comfort of our home.)

  • The instruction booklet was left untouched and later was found on the floor under the passenger's side seat.

Now speaking of that bathing suit, what would have he thought if I couldn't wait to get home to put it on? If I stripped in my car so I could immediately wear it?

Oh never mind, if guys got wind of girls putting on bathing suits in the Wal-mart parking lot, they'd all run out to buy digital cameras to take pictures.

    Boys and their electronic toys! My husband is also a gadget freak. My dad never reads directions. Maybe that's why it takes him sooooo long to put something together!

    Yup!! that's men for you... We women always feel guilty when we get ourselves something, but catch them ever feeling guilty about anything... If they want it, they get it, and ASAP...thanks for stopping by.
