I am the king of random impulse purchases. This week, I fell victim to two impulse purchases on two different days at the same store. Curse you, Target.
I still haven’t opened it. I’ll probably trade it. But still … $5!
It kind of reminds me of the time I got The Dukes of Hazzard Season 1 at a used CD store (remember those?) for $3. Never watched an episode.
The second random purchase is a bit more random. Target was the exclusive seller of Prince’s 2009 three-CD opus Lotusflow3r (the “3” could be dubbed “The Letter Formerly Known as ‘E'”), and now, about a year later, they are dumping the overstock. It was $4.99.
Prince is one of those pop culture enigmas I feel I should know, but for the life of me, I can’t really get into. But, still … $4.99. The 50-percent clearance price was too much for me to resist. I talked myself into giving Prince a chance and bought it.
I still haven’t heard it. I opened it, but haven’t had the heart to listen to it.
And so it sits. More evidence that the best was to spell “sucker” is “M-E.”
