Some of the best writers I have ever come across have been bloggers. Claire Bidwell-Smith, Meg, Kelle Hampton, the greats. They write about their lives beautifully even if there is nothing epic going on. They also have "just for fun posts" that I admire just as much as the magnificent and profound blog posts of theirs. I think it's important to any blog dynamic to have a few of these. Furthermore, anyone who knows me knows that I take about one in ten thing seriously, so it would be unlike me not to have a few fun series! The following post, is my version of a "just for fun" post.
I came up with this idea while living in Salt Lake this summer. They don't call it Zion for nothing. Salt Lake is THE PLACE, simply because there are ten different Targets at my fingertips. Once you walk through those red sliding doors and if you have ovaries, there is literally no turning back for you wallet.
So now, I introduce you to my first series.
"What I Intended to Buy at Target and What I Actually Bought"
My family was going to Bear Lake the last weekend before school started and my flip flops got obliterated at Yuba Lake a few weeks before. My plan was to run into Target, grab the flops and run back out, ten minutes. Boom. Well, I can assure you that I have ovaries and so once I walked into the air conditioned superstore I fell under the Targhee Hypnosis and before I knew it, I was in the dressing room with a huge pile of clothes. I would like to say that once I realized what I was doing to my poor wallet I dropped everything and walked out. However, the thing about the Targhee Hypnosis is that you are blissfully entranced. I was so happy to be blowing all my money in the Target.
|"And in this moment in the dressing room, I swear my wallet was infinite"|
I'm not really sure what my point is here other than I might extend my degree in order to live in Logan once they have a Target.
