Baby B set out yesterday to wrap up most of her Christmas shopping. Tysons, naturally, was her weapon of choice. She deliberately left her b-friend at home - she needed to focus.
Mom - check.
Dad - check.
Sis - check.
Cuzzin - check...
She blazed through her list.
Then she poked her head in at Urban Outfitters. Goal: to find an under $20 gift for a friend gift exchange back home. Good choice, I say. Their mix of funky and fun accessories and home dohickies is sure to meet the goal.
So she found this tongue-in-cheek carry all (I suppose there's an unintended pun in there - sorry). Perfect to keep your sense of humor on your commute, throw in your gym stuff for post-holiday self-promises, and priced at $9.99. Next stop, go find something cute to put inside, and goal accomplished.
She heads to the register.
"You're going to be really happy," the girl behind the counter says. "It's $1.99."
In a flash, Baby B went back to pick up a few more. 6 bucks later, she had 3 gifts (one for herself, of course, and 2 for friends).
Now the question is: Does she need to go fill it with $18 worth of goodies to hit the $20 mark?
