I Love The Lack of Logic

Yes, I refuse to give in to the suspense ...hah! I'm evil (or not). maybe partially devious. anyway, yes, thank you, I. am. an. idiot. it was indeed a pair. they should make that more clear next time.
The irony of the experiment is that I'm still not keeping them cause they don't fit. I shouldn't have gotten the men's argyle sock cause it was prettier than that sock I linked just cause a woman was wearing it with a clog in one of the pictures. perhaps she has gigantic feet. anyway, it took me a whole afternoon to fill in the return slip with the new socks I wanted and pj pants. yeah, I bought a couple pairs of those and one was so long that probably one day I'd trip and go rolling down the stairs. if I can stick slippers on backwards and twist my ankle, anything is possible.
Of course, I didn't just stop on the return form after the two items I was exchanging for new items. I decided since I was cheated out of the new styles they added to the store after I ordered, I'd buy another pair of pants and another pair of pj pants with the new pair of pj pants I was exchanging for the old ones if that made any sense. anyway, I stuck all this in an envelope with the pre-paid return slip on top without showing mom what I put on the form at all. I'm quite evil and going to get taken away one day for shopping addiction.
Actually on Dr. Phil today they were talking about people's addictions. I do believe shopping is my only straight up addiction. I wouldn't call getting anxiety attacks in public an addiction even if I cannot stop them ...uh yes. anyway, the one guy on the show had a shopping addiction. he said he got a powerful rush when going into stores and spending money. I get a euphoric rush when I have a full cart or full list of items that I know I shall get soon enough to hold in my hands. it's all about the wait, the day of getting the package and giddily opening it that gets to me. I could soon enough just ask for a box maybe, but for some reason the rush is greater if I have more items within it. this would probably be how it would go:
Dr. Phil: now, let's think about this
Me: mmm hmm ...uh yes, tell me what I shall do
Dr. Phil: now you have got to decide for yourself. what is it about these packages that brings you happiness?
Me: well, they are pretty and ...and... I have a reason to be alive if I'm waiting for them
Dr. Phil: now, what makes you think you aren't worthy enough on your own? what about these inanimate objects, that are given by capitalist garshfersaken bastards, higher your self esteem?
Me: hm, that's a good question Dr. Phil. I don't know. really, I'd be happy as hell just to get a mix cd in the mail from a friend or a card or even time to hang out with someone
Dr. Phil: well, see? just wait for holidays for gifts. save your money child!
