There are things I simply can't resist. There are things I love, but can say no to. Like my children. Like Skittles. Like purses that are way too expensive. But these other things....oh my. I know I'm not alone. Some of you probably even share these obsessions or have bigger ones of your own.
I love chocolate. I guess I've mentioned that. Can't say no. Can't say one. Can't even say one a day. Can't say maybe not. Can't stop. Can't get enough.
Jewelry counters lure me in with all the bling and glimmer. Rings, bracelets, earrings...gemstones, fake gems, gold, white gold, silver, I love it all. I wear it all. I love jewelry. (Pet peeve: People who pronounce it Julery.) Bobbles, charms, the danglier the better. I have a sterling charm bracelet with charms I've collected since junior high. (No, jewelry was not made of stone back then.) It's so heavy and jangly I sound like a tabourine wearing it. I've since started on a second I like to call the charm annex. I've also started charm bracelets for my daughters and oldest granddaughter. (Woops, I don't actually have children that old. My bad.)
Goodwills and garage sales send out some sort of sonar beam that draws my car into the parking lot like a magnet. There might be something there I can't live without, and how will I ever know if I don't stop??
I can't pass up a teacup and saucer or a teapot if it has roses on it.
The book and magazine section of the store has a flashing neon sign RIGHT HERE, CHERYL.
Pens. I love pens.
Shoes. I adore shoes.
Sales. I can save money!!!
What about you? What can't you resist?
