Yesterday I was trying to do some thrifty shopping in a local thrift store. And I spotted the most beautiful little garden bench. Admittedly, the price wasn't all that thrifty because it cost a whopping 194 USD, but it was love at first sight.
Unfortunately I had my first love with me, and he vetoed the lovely bench on account of it being 'too expensive'… So now we're back home, and all I can do is look at its picture and sigh with longing because I just know deep in my heart of hearts that we were meant for each other.
Here's my lesson!
So let this be a lesson to you all: don't take your love with you to the local thrift store, because his love will put the kibosh on any new love.
