Retail Therapy

Well, this idea didn't take off too swimmingly. I got distracted by the new blossoms, lovely weather and taxes. Now that the taxes are done, I've gotten distracted by the need for new summer clothes. I think all of this idle time not spent at a day job or acting gig has made me a bit of a shopper -- and I never used to be, I want to add. It's just fun lately. This whim will pass I'm sure but it's bothering me a wee bit. Something about shopping has a feeling of therapy attached to it. I've heard the term "retail therapy" and used to scoff at it, but now I'm not so quick to judge. The feeling of a new thing in one's hands stirs up all kinds of excitement, however temporary the feeling but then it must soon be sated by another new thing and then another new thing to make the feeling last. So...therapy, in other words, really should be called addiction...retail addiction. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, right? Okay! Now that I've taken that first step, I'm going to go buy something new and maybe take the next step tomorrow. ;)
