The columnist isn’t a big fan of shopping and after what happened to him on a recent trip to Target, we can’t really say we blame him. See if you agree.
When women are depressed they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. ~ Elayne Boosler I was at Target last week doing some shopping, or rather being dragged along as my wife did some shopping for our grandson, Logan, for some back to pre-school clothes. Yes, that’s part of what grandparents do. I don’t shop in the truest sense of the word. I go to the store that has what I want. I find it. I buy it. I leave.
