This is what a typical trip to the mall for me includes.

I am reluctant to admit it...

Me: Going into Sees Candies.

Sees Lady:  "Welcome to Sees Candies, would you like a free sample?"

Me: (pretending to be surprised.  I don't know why, but I always do!)

"Oh!  Yes, please!"

Sees Lady: "Okay, today's candy is Blah Blah Blah deliciousness."

Me:  "Oh Great!"

Sees Lady:  "Would you like one for your baby."

Me:  (Thinking: What kind of an idiot mother would give their baby a mocha almond truffle?!)

Saying: "Oh, yes please!!"

Me Again:  "Oh Joseph, look what you get to have after your lunch!"

At this point, I usually make some excuse and leave.  Sometimes, if I am feeling extra ashamed, I will buy the cheapest thing that they have.

I get around the corner.

And eat Joseph's free truffle.


Most embarrassing though

is that, if they don't offer to give Joseph a free sample,

I ask if my baby can have one.

So that I can eat it.

There, I said it.

WOW, that was SOME confession! Well, you know I'm guilty as well since you've actually been with me when I'VE got free samples nonchalantly :)

Your honesty is always humorously refreshing.
