Going Cold Turkey

Where does that expression come from, anyway? Wikipedia to the rescue!

CB says to go cold turkey on thrift store shopping. She's right, she's right, I know she's right (props to whoever gets that reference), but it's hard. I love the treasure hunt, finding that special deal. It's so much fun. And I don't like most regular stores--department stores have too much stuff, specialty stores are too pricey.

If I could always stick to a list, perhaps. But it's the thrill of being there that's the problem. The feeling "what cool thing will I find today?", that's what I need to avoid. I am complete, I need nothing. Repeat until the message sinks in. Then repeat again.

I feel you there. But then, I've found some free time that shopping used to occupy. So a good trade after all.

Kerrie Fisher says it in "When Harry Met Sally" when Meg Ryan and other friends tell her that her boyfriend is never going to leave his wife. :-)

That is exactly how I feel. My friends don't understand the rush of finding new treasures.
Sigh.........
