What is it with shopping and happiness? Is retail therapy for real ?
I think it is .I get a great deal of happiness while shopping...be it any place..it need not be any expensive place...even ordinary shops wld do...but the the crowd in the pavement shops is a bit too much to handle .
I feel if there is nothing purchased at the end of the session..it is waste of efforts..again if I have spent too much..I feel guilty. So it has to be in moderation.
Coming back home and looking at the purchases is another pleasure :)
A piece of advice..if there is one species that shd not be taken along while shopping its called 'human male' species . It has the potent ingredient called 'nagging' that can kill any shopping happiness. And just when u think u have found the rt dress and want to try it on...the species goes into the 'hunger mode' and wants lunch at 10:30 AM and all after it has gobbled down a dozen idlies.
If the species also happens to fall under the sub-category 'brother' then beware , it's the deadliest of the strains and may even resort to a volley of expletives in public .
So friends...enjoy shopping..leave the species behind....rt where it belongs...in front of the idiot box :))
btw...this is a 'humor' post :))
