if I had a store

I would sell all of my favorite things, and some things I cannot seem to find anywhere else.
I would have a cafe in the corner that sold coffee's, tea's and yummy pastries.

There would be warm sweaters, soft blankets, and fluffy, white bedding.

An aisle would have pictures of friends and family. Nostalgic memories would come in cute colored packages.

If I owned a store, I would sell "skinny"... and "pounds off", and "fit's again". All of this would be in the same aisle as dark chocolate and tiramisu.. so you wouldn't forget to pick up the "skinny" after you gorge yourself on the chocolate.

Finished projects would be half off, and to-do lists would not be in our inventory.

If I owned a store, an entire section would sell items like: sanity, good conversations and belly laughs.

End caps would display naps in all times and lengths.

The back wall would be covered in manuals and instruction booklets on all things. Babies. Boys. Getting your husband to read your mind...

Extra brain power and  brain space would be next to clever comments and witty banter.

A "Time for You" section would include items such as: showers, pedicures, favorite TV shows and maid service...

In my store, there would be books... rows and rows of books... that you can read in no time flat. Music would play and people would break out into song and dance like in old musicals...

Bottles of "not fussy" and "no whining" would be in the same section as "obey your mother" and "sunny disposition".

"Scrub my dishes" and "do the laundry"  would be buttons like the Staples "easy" button.

Oh, and I  would call it a shoppe... just to irritate Cristi :)


If I had a store it would contain all this and more... the only problem is, I need most of the stuff listed above in order to have the time to start... ahh, irony.
