Is it just me, or can a trip to Target make everything right with the world?
No matter what you say, a trip to Wal-Mart or the grocery store just doesn't do the trick. Call me a discount store snob. I don't care because I am. Target is the only one for me.
The clutter-free aisles and brightly lit store help make my shopping experience a pleasureable one. When I enter the store, I always have a list, but because Target is so terrific, I know that I will come out of the store with one very self-absorbed item...maybe new lipstick, a smart belt, an aromatic pear flavored candle, or a hazelnut skim latte to go. Everything is better at Target. The gift bags are cuter. The greeting cards are more clever. The aisles are wider. And the have shopping baskets! Have you ever noticed that Wal-Mart does not have shopping baskets, only carts. They think they can fool me, but I am not the average shopper. Some nice, elderly lady who very kindly greeted me at Wal-Mart told me that they don't have them because they hope you'll buy more with the obtrusive wheeled cart. What they don't realize is that I might also knock down their rude toilet paper display that is directly in the center of the aisle because I have been forced to drive the cart. I've got their number!!
