World Market Shopping Spree
This adventure began a few weeks ago during the last big game before the Super Bowl. I’m going to be real with you here: aside from the Super Bowl, I couldn’t care less about football. While her parents watched the game, I took my little niece to World Market. Near the food aisles (of course this is section I like best), was a table set up for a Big Game Shopping Spree Raffle. I almost passed it up because I never win anything like that, but I did enter – and wouldn’t you know….I WON!
I won a $500 shopping spree to World Market!! Easily one of the best days of my life. I mean, who doesn’t fantasize about a shopping spree? You imagine yourself running through the aisles tossing random things into your cart, carefree, hair blowing in the wind… That’s what I imagine, anyway. When I opened the email, I was ecstatic. Think back to your childhood, on Christmas morning when Santa brought you that impossibly perfect gift you had been desperately wishing for. That was me, and I said “What?!?” about a dozen times, then I did a dance- like a spastic, electrocuted, crazy person dance. I couldn’t help it. It was involuntary, like a possession, but a good one. I was possessed by a really happy ghost that can’t dance.
