Acquiescence

Those fibers exerted no effort in convincing me to take them home. It was a subliminal persuasion, they just sat there looking all beautiful and shamefully inexpensive. I should have known better than to even enter Suss during this super sale, and if this big bag o'stash isn't what I expected to take home with me then I was just kidding myself. But still, I tried to escape with just the 4 skeins of Araucania Nature Cotton but then I couldn't resist the $2 chocolate Suss Cotton. Then that mardi gras colored spacedye passively forced me to submit to it. Then I was finished. I was in line to check out. But the green apple Suss Cotton kept assaulting my peripheral vision. I tried to ignore it. I was about to hand my bin over to the sales woman. And then I ran away, back to the green apple, and bought all of it. All of the green apple cotton. All of the chocolate cotton. What am I going to do with all this? Why did I give in so easily? At least the Suss staff made me feel a little better by figuring out that if I had paid full price for all 30 skeins of cotton, 2 skeins of spacedye and 4 skeins of Nature Cotton, I would have shelled out an additional $186. Now that's a bargain!

Bye bye, Suss NYC. Your store was beautiful, and so close to my old pad. I'll miss you, but thanks for the sale!

That green apple!!! I would have bought it all too--the way I see it, you had no choice!
It was so good to see you on Tuesday--I hope the next 2 weeks doesn't last a month and a half!

What a haul! You'd think you liked green or something. Great savings though.
