Day 29: The Importance of the Right Accessory

The other day I was getting ready to go home after running a couple of errands when a saleswoman - tall, striking, brunette - beckoned me over. How could I refuse?

It seems that from looking at me, she had decided she wanted to sell me on a particular belt that she was convinced would make my life oh so much better. I must admit that in a minute or two she started to irritate me, but there was no means of escape; she appeared to be the type who would follow me if I tried to get away.

When she told me the price, I swallowed hard - twice. But she had already gone to the trouble of writing up the invoice and I was pretty sure that she wasn't going to take it back so I reached out and took it from her.

I thought for a moment about my own sales target for Carswell, about how far out of reach it is for me this month. I wished I could achieve my target as easily as she was achieving hers. I wished I had put more thought into this belt in the first place.

So if you're out and about in our district, and you see Sheriff Hunt, be very careful what kind of accessories you are wearing, or she may call you over too; I hear she's got a lovely pair of cuffs that she might think suits you beautifully ...

Just don't tell her the Tea Bag sent you!

And remember, crime doesn't pay. At least - not me.


  1. At least you found a creative way of blogging about it:). When I started I was thinking, "why did she let the lady talk her into buying it!" Now I see:(.
