Yesterday, I was suckered into buying a stack of something because it was on sale. Yes, I thought it was something I wanted and something I could give as a gift. But I went overboard and did that because it had a sticker: the sale was good until Dec. 5, which was yesterday.
Now, that I am laying awake, I am thinking: what else have I "bought", that in the end failed to deliver, but that was very good at advertising itself? Buy now, it said. I am good for you. And on top of it I am, a good deal. Except it was not.
