It’s confirmed. I am a consumer. Yes yes we all are I suppose. We all buy things but do we all think everything is a great deal? Nope. But I do.
I went to see The Adjustment Bureau on Sunday night and my friend walked up to me at the theatre with a small cup of coffee in her hand and said, “$2.89 for this!”.
I replied, “That’s awesome!”
Wrong reply. I was supposed to look at the cup and realize it was mini and that the coffee was overpriced. I failed.
But it was such a pretty turquoise cup. It was a pretty coffee. So here’s the deal. I love pretty things. I’ll pay an arm and a leg for anything glittery, pink or silky. Am I ashamed? Sure. But only a teeny bit. I’m mostly in awe of designers who make things look so damn pretty. I think I need therapy. And not the retail variety. Tee hee.
