I was out walking around and window shopping today when I came across a pair of fuzzy pink rabbit ears. They were only $1, so naturally I bought them. In order to complete the transaction, they wanted my e-mail address and phone number. Now, for other stores, for other purposes, I have totally played along with this because you're shopping and you're not really thinking. But for a $1 purchase, this just suddenly struck me as ridiculous. So I said, "Um...No."
This seemed to catch the poor sales girl off guard, for a brief moment, both of us stared at each other. I don't know whether she thought I was joking or not, but I was pretty serious. Eventually, I broke the silence by saying, "I don't need a ton of sales ads over a $1 purchase," and we moved on with our lives. Despite the discomfort from the sales girl, I wore the bunny ears for the rest of the day. It was only after I caught a glance of myself in a mirror that I saw how ridiculous they looked and this made me laugh and smile. I hope I made other people laugh today. Maybe I'll wear them tomorrow with an outfit they don't clash with and see if the same result applies.
I kind of wanted to wear them tonight and go to church service, but I accidentally fell asleep after my nephew left and I missed the window of opportunity to go tonight. I totally could have too. I don't exactly know what a "lord's supper" service is like, but it sounded neat. I think I heard the the priests wash feet also. Ah well, there's always next year.
2 more days and I am officially Catholic.
