Just a little thing…

I went into Matalan in Swindon to buy some clothes. When I got to the checkout the assistant asked if they were all presents and I said “No, actually they’re for me”.

How simple – but in those few words I realised just how far I have come in the last few months.

She didn’t bat an eyelid, just commented on the colours I had chosen and said that she had bought one of the dresses herself and how nice it was.

It made me realise that we create or own demons…

  1. Not so little…

    A few weeks ago I went into a NYC Kmart and bought rings and necklaces and the checkout girl said how pretty they were and how she loved the colors and how I had i had such a sense of style and she was truly admiring them (I should add here i like to buy my girl things out in stores because…) but this time I got frightened and said they were for my girlfriend and the checkout girl looked hurt that I didn’t trust her to be that savvy or whatever and lied to her. I felt diminished. Never again!
    Congrats Christine.
