Back in September, I lost my mind. It was just for a moment, but it was a definite psychotic break. And it’s taken me until now to talk about it.
In my normal state, I don’t
- Shop online
- Make impulse purchases, especially not over $20
- Buy much decor
These aren’t formal rules. I’m just very frugal and tend to avoid purchases that I view as “frivolous.”
Well, in a moment of insanity, I whipped out my credit card and bought something that is the very definition of frivolous.
Behold my papier-maché goose head.
I first saw it on Lindsay’s blog, and it was pretty much love at first sight. Although, in all fairness, the goose wasn’t a complete impulse. I did think about this purchase for 24 hours before I finally pulled out my credit card and logged in to Etsy.
When the box came, I couldn’t even tell Matt what was in the package. And once I opened it, he still didn’t understand why I had to buy it (and Matt knows my history).
And I think it’s time you know this bit of my history too. Next week, I’ll share the story of Bill.
