I’m so terribly, terribly sorry. I feel so ashamed of myself. I know we’ve discussed this in years past, and came to an agreement that was mutually beneficial (well, I think still think it was more to your benefit than mine) but I just couldn’t help myself. I tried to be strong. Really I did. But it was so hard!
Yes, I did it. I bought 5 books and only paid for four. Yes, I know we agreed I wouldn’t buy anymore books this month, especially with the wedding coming up so soon, but really, it wasn’t my fault.
It’s all Borders fault. Those bastards.
No, really. I never would have bought them if they hadn’t been sneaky and underhanded, and been “exploiting” my “frailty at a time of emotional weakness.”
See, I told you, it’s all their fault.
Jane said so. You believe her, don’t you?
I promise to try and restrain myself better next time. But, I can’t make any promises. After all, we’ll have been married almost a full year by the time next Valentines Day rolls around. And I’m sure I’ll be feeling ever more “emotionally weak” by then.
P.S. I’m sure you’re disappointed in me, but if you’d like, you’re more than welcome to “exploit” my emotional distress further by visiting the store. 5 for 4 is a great deal, no?
