I know I know I missed two days now .. DAMN!!! This writing a post every day of the month is so hard, plus it does not help that it is in the month of January. Too much has happened in the last 3 to 4 weeks, been under tremendous pressure due to some reasons which I am not very comfortable sharing at moment on a public place, Although some of you have been absolute Darlings and been emailing me, I am thankful to you all. I just hope and wish no one goes through it all, tragedies strike in three’s they say so one thing after the other ANYWAY forget that all 🙂

Right then ladies and gentlemen Who said that retail therapy is only for Ladies, OH NO . no no no Noooooooo it is not .. and Who said Retail therapy works .. OH YES. yessssssss yes yes yes yes it WORKS and worked a treat yesterday for sure and by the looks of it , IT is still working although when the credit card bill comes I am not sure how well it will work then.

Saying that I am a good boy I don’t misuse my credit card, since I have a gold card I get lots of points , other benefits , privileges if I use it , so YES I use it for every shopping I do from buying grocery to fuel BUT what I do is at the weekend I make sure I pay the money into it from my Debit account, So usually when the monthly statement comes it is 0.00.

Anyway this is not a gyaan post its on what I did at the weekend, On Saturday I had a phone call from an old old friend Jason who has now shifted to Coventry, hence we don’t get to meet often, he was in town with his little daughter and wanted to meet up, The daughter wanted to watch a movie Taken 3, We organised to watch the movie and then sit for a bite later on. Once all that was done, after the good bye’s I was walking to my car when I happened to walk by the Nike showroom that had an irresistible offer, Everything in there was on 40% off, I RARELY get excited about sales , don’t know why I had this urge to visit, since it was late, the shop had shut by then, I made a mental note that Tomorrow Sunday I will make a trip.

So Sunday afternoon I went to the shop to buy a pair of good shoes, I must tell you here that offer was 40% but because of my job I can get another 10% on it .. so the 50% off was a juicy deal. I was looking for the high-end Lebron or Kobe, But there were none on the shelf, there were some Jordan’s-flights etc, But I already had a pair of them so did not want to spend any money, I felt dejected ,walking back I just happened to ask one of the store guy if they had any Lebron or Kobe in size 10 or 10.5, at first he said No sir everything is on the shelves, but later he asked me to wait to go and see in the back.

After about 5 minutes he came back saying yes they have some in stock but they have not been checked yet or tagged, so will go on the shelf only Tuesday or Wednesday, to which I just said I can’t come back again , I finish work around 10pm , shops close at 5:30, don’t know why or what made him do what he did, maybe my sad-ugly looking face 🙂 , he said wait , he will ask the manager and see if anything could be done, so again I waited..

After another 10-15 minutes he came out holding about 6 or 7 pair of boxes, and believe me when i say that EVERYONE in the shop looked at me, or rather at those boxes being carried to me , I mean I could FEEL THE GAZE of every individual. You know sometimes when you can feel Someone is watching you, a few of the men I could see coming towards and just standing a couple of feet away , looking at each box being opened , so I tried a pair

I liked them, kept that on one side, tried the other one and another one .. For some reason I liked all of them .. and Guess what I did , I bought all of them .. YES you read it right, ALL OF THEM, I am not sure if it was the right decision but I did like all the shoes, could not choose which ones to keep, and the moment I said to the Store guy “I will have all of these”.. the horrified look on everyone else around, as if saying HOW DARE I BUY THEM ALL. They were almost going to jump on me or at the boxes after I had chosen. I really felt I was in danger especially after the way PUBLIC had behaved on the Black friday sales in December, People had gone MAD and that too on a sale which is STILL GOING ON TODAY.

I don’t know what’s wrong with people anymore they are becoming vultures and in-human, TV footage shoes people actually pulling each other’s hair, kicking others, snatching abusing each other to get hold of an item that was on sale.

Anyway coming back to me, Yes I bought all the Lebron pairs , a couple of Jordan flights pair.. 7 pairs of shoes I bought.. you can call me STUPID-IDIOT-SHOW OFF anything , and I have no answer to if you ask me , Why I bought them. I just did. The last time I had bought a pair of shoe was in India , Bangalore in 2012. yeah its been that long.

The problem is my shoes don’t get spoilt that easy because for work I wear combat Magnum shoes and NOTHING happens to them, I got two pairs that I have been using for a few years now. , The other job of computers is sitting job , so shoes are hardly used for anything. Its only when I go running or to a gym or sometimes if I go to parties etc that I wear good shoes, but since last year I have hardly gone to any parties because of my health and all. So I have so many pairs of shoes, Which again brings us back to the point I have no answer why I bought all the pairs. Maybe because they were going cheap.

So to end the story I had a smile and my heart-felt excited, you know bubbly I cant explain the emotion it was like , I wanted to come home or go to a friends and say come come everyone Look what I bought, see see seeeeeee.. I am sure you all know that feeling of excitedness (is that a word)…

Let me conclude here saying that YES retail therapy works and I woke up HAPPY Today, I had post scheduled to be published for the whole week, I stopped that schedule and Wrote this post. 🙂 🙂 Now I am going to publish this and go to Work wearing my New Shoes, One each day yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Here have a look at these lovely shoes ..

The bill was whopping .. But 50% off made the smile broader .. I don’t know if I did the right thing or not, But then that’s ME…..

Country roads .. take me Home ..
To the place I belong …

The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin’ down the road I get the feelin’

That I should been home yesterday yesterday
TAKE ME HOME
