We have caveman like instincts, I have lots.
I have this nearly uncontrollable urge to knock over that giant tower of perfectly stacked wine glasses in Crate & Barrel. I walk past, barely glancing at the shimmering tower that’s mocking me from it’s white square pedestal as I clutch my purse tightly and imagine swinging it right through the center, sending it all crashing to the ground. And I promise you that if I’m ever on the receiving end of a giant cash filled windfall, it’s the first thing I’ll do. Some people will buy a car, or that ridiculously overpriced pair of shoes, but for me: walk right into the nearest Crate & Barrel, swing my purse right through a six foot tower of glassware, throw down a wad of hundreds and walk right out, completely satisfied. Don’t think I wont.
Until I’m a millionaire, I’ll have to control myself. I’ll just sublimate my destructive urges by eating meat off a stick. It’s caveman like, and it’s less expensive.
But If I ever win the lottery, you should alert all of the nearest high end house-ware retail chains, just to be safe.
