If you are keeping up by now you know I love Saks... French Connection... Crate and Barrell.... Barney's CoOp... but my favorite store is Target or as Jackie Washington would say Tar'Get.
As I was driving the short few miles to Potomac Yards... I looked over my list at least twice. I love Potomac Yards because they have everything I need for a Saturday shopping trip. Target sits next to Best Buy, which is right down from Barnes and Noble, which is next to Shoppers Food Warehouse which sits next to Pier 1. As I pulled up to Target, I reminded myself I am just getting the basic necessities. You know body wash, Olay Cleansing Pads, Tide, baby oil, and a candle or 2... $15 or 20 at most. But in the midst of our idle banter, Chris had put my last item in the bag and told me $62.20. His facial expression in response to my now frowned up face was a simple What??
It never seems to fail... those damn Target executives are smart or I am just weak. I think I can count on one hand the number of times I have been able to go into Target and spend less that $50. This time it was new baking pans, a cell phone case, and new socks. Last time I think it was Tshirts, towels, and a dvd.
I see now Target isn't the store but people like me walking in. I am now putting myself on a once a month Target diet.
