I’m Displaying Addict Behavior
This morning I realized something that I do on a regular basis. I never noticed it before and when I actually SAW myself doing it, I froze in my place.
When I was younger and living with my grandmother, she used to make me go play her lotto numbers every single day…BUT she wouldn’t let me go to the same store. One day I would go up the block and the next I would walk a few avenues more just so the shop keepers couldn’t pick up on her… behavior.
I hated it! I listened because I was a child and that’s what children do, but I never understood why she wanted to hide her gambling from SHOP KEEPERS. I mean, they didn’t even know her name. WHO CARES RIGHT?
Well, this morning I went to get bagels and Starbucks for the family and then at about 11:30 or so I headed back out to run a few more errands. I pulled into a different Starbucks to get my drink because I don’t like to go to the same store twice in one day. Don’t want them to think I was an addict or something…
Wait a minute… isn’t that the same thing my grandmother used to do? I couldn’t believe it! The one thing I hated more than anything else is now something I do on a daily basis. Who cares if the Starbucks cashier knows that I drink 2 BTLs a day? Well, apparently I DO!!!!
Do you do something like this? With what?
