So I’m sitting at my grandparents house this weekend and I get a “junk” email from Sam Moon. I’ve never been there, but I imagine after peeking at their website that I would love that place. I decided it’s probably best for my checking account that I (and my girls) try to stay clear of that joint.
….back to the “junk” email. It’s just highlighting special deals of some sort on purses and jewelry. But, hold on just a minute….there in that email is THE PURSE. The world stops just for a second as I see this beautiful purse.
I want it…..I need it….I’m sure somewhere on that purse my name is already on it. It’s gorgeous and is everything I ever dreamed in a purse! So this is what love at first sight is. I can barely breath! I show my mom, grandma and girls the pic of the purse. They agree – it’s me.
BUT – Survivor is on and at that moment, I have a bowl of cereal in front of me, and Colby Donaldson with his shirt off on a big screen HDTV. I put the purse on my mental to do list to order later in the day. It would complete me. It’s what I’ve been waiting for my entire life!
Fast forward to this morning. I get an email from my mother alerting me that Coach has filed a lawsuit against Sam Moon. My heart races….that wouldn’t affect my purse would it? I got busy helping my grandfather that day…..I better order it now just in case!
I go online to find……
This can’t be so! This isn’t happening….I feel weak, dizzy, short of breath. Wait..is that chest pain? I think my heart just broke. Lawsuit or not…it doesn’t matter because they SOLD OUT???!!!
I now feel lost, empty and incomplete.
Sigh. Wasn’t it just beautiful, though?
Happy Freakin’ Tuesday.
