I do most of my shopping online. It’s easier. Not that I don’t want to deal with people. I do, everyday. However, shopping people -shoppers- are a whole other beast. And, I don’t have the tolerance for it.
With that said, I still need to make my way to an occasional store here and there. As I did so today, I noticed that I have a shopping quirk. I always select the second item from a stack. I never go for the first item.
Maybe I fear a ton of people have touched. Maybe I fear it’s the one most likely to expire quickly. Maybe I just like tbe runner up. There’s something to be said about coming in second. There’s less pressure. There’s room for growth. There’s the element of surprise. The first one already gets all the attention.
Who am I kidding. It’s probably a fear of germs-thing.
