Retail therapy

This week I went to Target, because I felt the need to spend a little money on myself.  A little pick-me-up.  I bought cosmetics and a pair of earrings.  And it did pick me up.  My step was a little lighter going out to my car, my plastic Target bag in hand.  Bullseye!

Life is good in a capitalistic country, isn't it?  Then I wondered, as I ate my dark chocolate mint bar (cleans your breath while delivering instant dark chocolate goodness), what do people in third world countries do for a pick-me-up?  The average salary in Honduras, for example is one hundred dollars a month.  I spent fifty dollars on my little Target treasures.

Have you been to Honduras?  What is the local pick-me-up activity?


  1. Llama racing. That's my guess.

  2. Funny you should mention retail therapy. I visited Barnes & Noble today. After which, I went to the aquarium shop and purchased six new tropical fish.

    As for Honduras: cigars?
