I am almost positive that I am not the only woman whose husband is not a true shopper...
I had been planning all week to go shopping today (Friday) because there are a couple of baby showers this weekend that I needed to buy for. I also wanted to see if I could find some jeans for myself. Yesterday, Sam called and suggested that I go to town last night because it was going to be raining today. After giving it some thought, I decided that perhaps that would be best.
I sent him a text to see if he was going to go with me. Sam's response was did I want him too. You never know with that response if he is saying "Yes, I want to go with you, or I will go if you want me to". Since he really does not like for me to go by myself at night, I took it as if he was saying...yes, I want to go with you....
We leave around 5:30 and my first stop was the mall to find my jeans. Sam decides to go out into the middle of the mall and wait while I shop. I found some cute jeans and head to the fitting room to try them on. Just as I am in the middle of changing, my phone beeps with a text. Here I go trying to hold up the pants and grab the phone at the same time....It was Sam....text reads: Checking on you. I am smart enough to know that what the text was really saying was: "How much do you like?"..........I quickly respond "almost finished"....Everyone knows the procedure, get what you think you like and get checked out. That is exactly what I did. I thought I better text him and let him know I am on my way down.
Before I even pressed the send button he was there to meet me...
Second stop was Target.....This time he doesn't even get out! Lets me out at the door... I can't just go into Target and grab something and come right out....I love to shop in that store. I make my way to get the items I need and I am thinking (ok, I have enough time to look at this and that). Checking my watch, I decided I had better go on and check out.
Wouldn't you know it.....I would pick the checker that moves like a snail....So slow! As I get back into the truck, I can feel Sam wanting to say...."I should have stayed home."
I guess it paid off for me to go to the car show with him on Sunday! ...Perhaps that is the reason he just smiled and didn't complain.
I do appreciate him going with me. There is nothing like getting to be dropped off and picked up at the door. Saves the time of looking for a parking spot and having to walk in the cold when you shop...Total time we were gone......2 hours and 15 min! That is some quick shopping...
