Why didn't anyone stop me?
I should know better, but I haven't learned yet. I KNOW better than to go to the store so I can pick up a little trinket or two for a "thank you" gift bag for someone. I know what happens when I do that.
I went to get a bottle of nice lotion & a candle & a card for a girl who's always nice at work. She's quiet, so she's always overlooked--everyone else gets gifts all the time, invited out all the time, joked with all the time, etc. She gets ignored. But she's always soft spoken & sweet & a listener & inquisitive about how people are feeling. She's a single mom of a little girl; she's twentythree, I think. Her boyfriend was abusive & stalks her. Her little girl always seems to be sick...allergies, colds, infections, viruses, you name it. She works graveyard shift. So I figure my coworker doesn't have much time to be a woman for herself, and definitely doesn't have the money to do so.
Instead of a candle & a lotion, I found:
Three bottles of scented lotions
One expensive skin care bottle of scented bubble bath
One expensive REALLY good scented body wash
Three bottles of nice scented oils for burning
One oil burner (that's what the candles are for)
Aloe filled socks
A bag of Dove milk chocolates
A plain blue Kraft bag
Seven sheets of beautiful stickers to decorate said bag
A roll of ribbon for decorating
Multi-color tissue paper
Seriously. Will I ever learn? My five-dollar thank you became sixty bucks. And I can't wait to see what she does.
