Tiger's not the only one.....

Please. Please don't tell.

But I'm having an affair.

I'm cheating on Target.

With Wal-Mart.

I know!

I shouldn't do it. I'm not unhappy with Target. It didn't do anything wrong. It's not Target. It's me.

Something about those long hours, alone with Wal-Mart last week. They changed me. I see Wal-Mart in a new light. A brighter light. I thought they only had things like Christmas ornaments of Santa holding a gun. But I looked around, and I saw things I never expected to see there. Like organic unbleached flour. And a really cute long sleeve t-shirt for $6. A button down for $9. A tote bag, with Bono on it (yes, Bono!), for $7.

There were $7 sweatshirts. And Muppet Show flannel pajamas. And cute binder clips. And packages of M&Ms that are all green (only the green M&Ms!). Even the produce looked good!

Who knew? Not me. But I know now. And I keep going back for more.

I'm not leaving Target. Not at all.

I think we're just "on a break."

Please don't be mad at me.

I just need some time to work this out of my system.

Things will be back to normal soon. I promise.

Very funny!

I recently flirted with a new grocery store and we are now exclusive.

What a cute post! We can't all love Target forever and not think there is something better out there.

I can't believe I had to read your blog to find this out. I'm so hurt. Cheating is one thing, but with Wal-Mart! You should've at least told me face to face. Is this because my R is burnt out? That's the real reason, isn't it??
