Let the buyer beware is very good advice! I should have considered it before I impulsively picked up an innocent looking pair of socks sitting by the cash register and added it to my purchase of a very respectable t-shirt.
In my defense:
- My daughter had returned to school after her Spring Break the day before and I was feeling sentimental and missing her.
- Winnie had chewed up my “evening/bedtime socks” and I needed another pair.
- They were wrapped in ribbon imprinted with the brand name MOTHER, MOTHER, MOTHER and folded so that you could only read “MOTHER”.
I really feel that the sales girl in the chic little shop on Ocean Avenue should have warned me. But, since she did not…Winnie’s got two new chew toys!
