Ask me to choose between fashion and comfort, and I will choose comfort every time. As a matter of fact, I don't care if certain types of clothing look phenomenal on me – I don't even care if I look like a goddess wearing them – if they don't FEEL comfortable, I'm not wearing them.
And when it comes to my bedding or my lounge wear, a velvety soft feel will win me over every time. Though I generally HATE to shop, when I do, I'm a touchy-feely kind of shopper.
Texture means a lot to me, so even if I'm on my way to the pharmacy as I pass through Walgreens, my hands will gravitate toward anything that looks even remotely soft.
A couple of weeks ago, as I was picking up a prescription from Walgreens, I noticed in the front of the store, across from one of the cash registers, a display of microsherpa throws. I felt one of the throws and immediately fell in love with it. I then felt another and then another, wondering how it was possible for anything to be that soft.
I WANTED ONE, but my reasoning told me I already had enough soft blankets, and besides this one was just a throw – just a little throw, not even big enough to cover my whole body. And then I asked myself, did I need it to cover my whole body? It was the softest throw I had ever felt. It was the softest ANYTHING I had ever felt.
My desire to own one tugged at me, but I dismissed it, walked back to the pharmacy, and congratulated myself for not giving in to temptation.
And then I remembered that I had to pass by the display on my way out. How could I resist feeling them one more time? I forced myself to deny my desire to own one, because, after all, I couldn't take them all with me. It wasn't like they were puppies or anything, which I'm allergic to anyway – I had to leave them there.
Like a magnet, however, they pulled me back to them. I felt myself battling my own tug of war, but I resisted. And then I comforted myself by telling myself that if they were still there the next time I stopped in, I would get one. After all, $15 for a microsherpa throw isn't bad, right? They're usually over $20. My strong will won.
But I thought about them all the way home.
The next time I stopped in at Walgreens to get another prescription (with all of my physical problems, I'm in there a lot), there they were – STILL – fewer of them, but still there. I resisted again, though I had to feel all of them just once more before I left.
A couple of days later, I received a call from Walgreens. One of my prescriptions was ready. I could have gone through the drive-through to pick it up, but I had to see if any microsherpa throws were left, arguing with myself that I really couldn't afford to buy ANOTHER soft blanket, and then telling myself, they are not just BLANKETS! They are MICROSHERPA THROWS!
Well, wonder of all wonders – not only were a few left, the one I really wanted was still there AND the price had dropped to $7.99! Ah, luxury! I rewarded myself with my own microsherpa throw.
If texture is important to you, you might want to consider getting a microsherpa throw for yourself. Nothing feels softer on your skin.
