Sometimes I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres. No particular reason. Just because I can.
I’ve been hemming and hawing over this purchase for years – and that’s not an exaggeration either. For years, I would pass by this item, drooling over it while thinking of excuses for buying it until pre-buyer’s remorse would kick in. What if I buy this and then I don’t use it? What if my husband gets mad at me for buying this? What if my children feel neglected because they think I love this more than them? Did I remember to put the clothes in the dryer? How long has that chicken nugget been under my desk? – You know – all the typical thoughts someone has when deciding on a major purchase.
So, year after year, I would pass on buying this item – even though I really, really wanted it. And then came last Tuesday, when I discovered I had a legitimate need for this object. Tuesday was the day I finally broke down and bought this item.
Ellen, it is with extreme pleasure that I would like to introduce you the newest addition to my office staff:
Meet Pepper! Let me tell you something, Ellen. This girl packs a mean punch!
