TITLE (EDIT)
The Debunking The Dreaded Shopping Spree
DESCRIPTION
The English language has approximately 500,000 words, and these words, in and of themselves, are quite benign.The other day that dreaded combination was uttered to me, and my life changed. I was headed into a black hole, a fearsome place where the laws of physics do not apply. Inside this hole time slows down, spatial disorientation occurs, tiny hands move through endless racks of clothes at the speed of light, and every moment seems like "Ground Hog Day."
