ADDICTION problem #1 ~ Some of you know how much I love my magazines. Yes,I am addicted. This is my newest high, Where Women Create. The cover was tempting me with the beatuiful studio of Gina Galvin. The checkout clerk looked at me as if I had lost it. Who spends $14.99 on a magazine? She never said a word,but ladies you know the look those clerks can give you. I politely told her in my sweet southern drawl,"I don't drink or smoke so I deserve this magazine." She still never uttered a word, a blank stare. Then as I dug out the money I thought, 'I don't have to defend myself to this unaddicted person. Besides she should not judge,she probably gets to look at it for FREE on her break!'
ADDICTION problem #2 ~ I purchased it on my lunch hour, big mistake. When a magazine addicted person gets their hands on a new issue they have to flipp through ALL the pages.I barely made it into the parking lot at work. Usually I start flippin at the red lights, but there was extremely heavy traffic. Well you all know what happened next. The sun was shining, it was toasty sittin in that car. I flipped very slowly through every beautiful page (did not have time to read). I glanced up at the clock...OH SHIT...very carefully put the magazine down as not to bend a single page or heavens forbid the covers. Then I was off like a mad woman. I work at a medical facility and I was running like it was a code blue. This was really not a cool thing to do, but when you are addicted you can't help yourself. I clocked in with one minute to spare.
MY ANSWER FOR THIS ADDICTION....I will pick up the new issues on my way home. Camo Man is more understanding about dinner being late,rather than my boss wondering why I took a hour and half for lunch.
