Are There Shops In Heaven?
I love shopping, too much my friends would say, and perhaps they are right.
You see, I may have a fatal addiction.
I’ve maxed out on my cards, my overdraft is bigger than the equity on my house, and my food cupboard wouldn’t keep a mouse alive. Conversely, all four of my wardrobes are overflowing and every door has more clothes on hangers than my local shop. There are half opened parcels everywhere. I just about have enough space on the kitchen table to drink a cuppa.
I have to do something to end my predicament.
The coffee tastes funny with the cocktail. I wonder if the angels will sympathise with a stupid shopaholic.
But what if I don’t finish the brew? I haven’t drunk enough to slip into the sleep of the everlasting. Think lady, think. There must be a way out.
I’ll take a bath, a nice hot one with bubbles. I always think better in the tub and maybe all my cares will wash away down the plug hole.
I slip into the foam allowing the suds to soothe and caress me.
How stupid am I to think that a double shot of whiskey in my coffee would send me to sleep?
I’m having a bad day.
The door bell rings.
No! No! Go away.
It rings again and again.
I can’t find my Egyptian cotton bathrobe.
Reluctantly, I walk to the door.
“Who is it?”
“The blind man.”
But he comes for his donation on a Tuesday, and this is Monday.
But is it?
My brain is concentrating on other things for all I can think of is my next shopping trip.
Forgetting my nakedness, I open the door.
“Nice tits love. Now, where do you want me to fit this gorgeous blind you ordered?”
