Shopping–Does this ever happen to you?

“I know exactly what to buy for my cousin’s birthday, I will zip into and out of the Mall in twenty minutes or less.

Oh! I didn’t know there was a special weekend sale, all my favourite brands too, woohoo!

Let me see if I can find a pair of suede boots to match my new camel coat?

What! three shoes for the price of two, let me get them in this season’s new colours, I just hope they have my size.

Three hours later, I drive home with an empty wallet and a truckload of shoes, clothes and cosmetics all at bargain prices!”



This is written for the Friday Five Lines or Less prompt from Patricia’s Place. The idea is to write a story or poem of five lines or less. This week’s word is “shopping.”

      1. Sometimes I go to the grocery store for one or two things and leave with bags of stuff. Then when I get home I find I didn’t get what I actually went for. 😾
