I have some pretty terrible impulse control. Whether it is binge-eating noodles, buying a stuffed animal off of Amazon, or deciding that I need a pet.
So, for Fourth of July, we were out at my family’s place, and we found a teensy, tiny frog. He was adorable and I named him Robert.
Well, then, Ty and I got in a fake argument about me coming home on Saturday with a pet. Except, I really did want a pet, and I wanted one NOW! So, after work on Saturday, we went with my bestie to buy books and a hamster.
He is adorable. He is cuddly (he fell asleep in my hands when I picked him up the first time). He has and awesome name, Fitzherbert, and I am pretty sure it isn’t pregnant. It may be narcoleptic and have OCD, though. Which is fine, we all have our issues….
So, after my impulse was satisfied, I looked on Amazon for add-ons to his cage. Turns out, if I had slowed down, did some research, I could have gotten just about everything I bought at the store for about half the price on Amazon. Also, we really need a printer.
This morning, when I woke up, I apologized to Ty for being impractical. We needed a printer, and I bought a hamster with an overprice home on a whim.
He laughed at me. I was offended for a second, until actually spoke.
“What would have made you more happy, a printer or the hamster?”
Of course, it was the hamster (even though I really, really need a printer for my grand recipe book idea). He is epic.
So, next time, I will cuddle Fitzherbert, not buy on impulse and get a printer. Or maybe buy something awesome for Ty. I mean, we went to video game store before the pet store and Whimzy ended up getting something. So not fair for him.
