I was reading the NY Post this morning and saw this picture….and I thought, 5 hours? really? How does anyone do that? Maybe I could do that if it were 3 days before Christmas and I had done no shopping and was in a panic…but I don’t think I could do it any other time of the year. At best, I can do 90 minutes and then I find myself some place drinking coffee, reading a newspaper. I have friends who can shop like for hours and claim it is therapeutic and social but I just don’t have the patience to wander through stores looking and buying for 5 hours. My friends say it is fun to wander through stores …even if they do not buy anything …and the walking is good exercise.
(My husband always teases me and says if I commit a crime, the Judge should sentence me to shopping because the thought of sitting in a cell, alone, no distractions, reading a book is not all that punitive to me.)
