An article that will make you feel much better about yourself
So, I like to think of myself as a pretty generous person. And I really enjoy shopping for and giving gifts. But while shopping for said gifts, I almost always end up buying stuff for myself too, and this has always made me feel awful. Like, "Jesus, Cheryl, can you for once not shop for yourself?" (The answer, apparently, is no.) But upon reading this article in today's New York Times, about women who, ahem, shop for themselves during prime Christmas shopping season, I felt waaay better. Especially when I read about the woman who dropped $900 on a jacket for herself. Good god, woman! So, go out, spend some money on your loved ones, spend some money on yourself, and don't feel bad about it. A dollar is a dollar is a dollar, and it all helps the economy. Right?
