Impulse Buy

Our local supermarket really has the holiday marketing thing down pat. The moment you walk in the door the smell of cinnamon and freshly baked bread goes straight from your nostrils to deepest recesses of your brain, where the most bright and festive Christmas carols start playing in a sweet medley. Your husband wanders like a yuletide zombie toward the crates of juicy clementines while your gaze falls longingly onto the display of $4 Christmas cacti in bloom.

Seriously, those dirty masterminds at Weis really know how to work it. They know it's so dull and gray outside that the only cure is bringing something live and blooming into your home. I mean, it's just not Christmas without a cactus. (Right?) At least not at my house, apparently.
