Call it what you must: Target, Tarjay {though I may judge you a bit for that one}… Well, I call it my drug of choice. No matter how hard I try, I just CANNOT stay away! And when I go in, boy is my wallet in trouble.

I was recently out running some errands, and I wasn't even planning to go to Target, but it's like my car felt some weird gravitational pull and I was drawn into the parking lot. Now, don't ask me how because my errands weren't even in that part of of town. What can I say? My brain car told me to!

I tried my best not to go. And by that, I of course mean I rationalized the whole thing by saying I needed to stop for some paper towels & I needed a cup of coffee… And Target has both packs of Bounty AND a Starbucks. I'll tell ya, having a brain that works this way is a killer.

I walked in and grab a cart because, well, why not who are we kidding?

Let's be real. The Target struggle is similar to that of a junkie. In both scenarios:

  1. You get so excited when you spot your drug of choice 
  2. Your euphoria as you take this drug is unparalleled to any other experience.
  3. After it's over, intense guilt and shame immediately follow--then you pledge NEVER to do it again.
  4. Withdrawal sets in and you use again. Lather rinse repeat.
I won't get into detail about what I bought, and I think it has something to do with #3. 

But I will say I was wearing a red shirt that day {of course} and some lady walked up and asked me where she could find a welcome mat. I mean, I've never worked at a Target… But I practically live there so of course I knew where they were. I walked her over there and found some weird silver bucket I couldn't live without {but now am planning to take back}. Let's face it, I'm never going to take it back. And if I do make the trip to return it, I'll end up spending $213 and I'll be all: "What the heck just happened?!"

While we're on the subject? I can't WAIT for these commercials to come back. 

That crazy Target lady is my soul sister.
