I accidentally went to Michaels today. Oops. No, I'm serious! I was driving home after work, and all of the sudden my car was parked and I was walking into the store.
Well, ok. Maybe I thought about it, and decided that it couldn't hurt to just stop in and look around for a minute. Who can remember these details? What is important is that they are having a sale. Maybe you've heard of it? Dollar Days. I wasn't gonna buy anything. Really. But then I saw Paper Packs for $4!!
I couldn't turn that down! I mean, paper is expensive. And I almost bought a few of those packs full price (with a coupon) just a few months ago! So I bought 6.
Kurt was supposed to be on campus until like 10 tonight, so I was gonna just sneak them in and mix them with my other craft supplies. But he came home early.
I walked in and thought "Oh no." Not only was he home, he was updating our bank account. Could I have chosen a worse time to walk in with 4 huge shopping bags??
I quickly stashed them in the hall closet. "Hey dude! So, uh, you're home early."
"Yeah, I thought I'd surprise you and clean the house while you were gone. I even mopped the floors."
Oh, man. I felt like such a traitor.
"Did you have to stay late at work?"
"Um, no. I had to get some gas... and then I accidentally stopped at Michaels."
He gave me this look. The one that says "I do not approve."
So we talked it over, and decided I should maybe wait until I actually get a paycheck to spend money.
Well, it was fun while it lasted.
