a lesson in shopping

for those of you who are shopping impaired, and a reminder for those who think you are good shoppers...

the other day i decided to go to target. finn was almost out of rice cereal, and i was bored, so why not. the changing of seasons means one thing at target - new stuff for people to see and buy, and wish they could buy. targets fall line of, well, everything, is great. everything is so tempting... oooh, look, especially that pair of comfy camo lounge pants. i decided to purchase these pants, and decided a size small would probably be adequate. so i looked at the see of hangers and found the right size and threw it in my cart, alongside 2 boxes of rice cereal, a bib, and a small bucket of chocolate bite things. i was so excited to get home and try on my new pants. i pulled them out of the bag and was so excited i decided to change right there in the kitchen (no one was there... no one could see me, why not...). so i put on my new pants (dramatic pause) and they fell right off. yep. fooled by the hanger tag. XL. to my utter dismay i could not wear these pants. they are toooooo big. lesson learned. check your tags. so now i get to travel back down I-80, down 72nd... all the way back to target, which i will probably be lured to buy something else.

what a clever scheme on targets part, eh??
