“If you’re going to be anything, be genuine.”

In a few weeks I’m taking off for a weekend away to the big city where there are museums and art galleries and an opportunity to spend days walking around.  I love walking around and discovering surprises.  That’s my description of getting lost.  I can get a lot of walking done by getting lost.

In order to prepare for the trip I had to go shopping.  My wardrobe is in order, which consists of black tops and jeans, but I wanted a new purse.  T. J. Maxx to the rescue!  For those of you who haven’t discovered this fine store I give it two thumbs up because I only have two thumbs.

What I was looking for was a purse.  I wanted a gold purse, preferably with money inside.  What I found was a mustard colored purse.  Close enough.


I like the adjustable strap that allows me to adjust this purse to the correct height for my torso.  (see body)  I like the large reflective button that allows me to discreetly check my lipstick.  And I was blown away because right on the label of the purse it said that it was, and I quote, a Genuine Product!

I looked up the definition of those two words to see exactly what I was purchasing and found out that what I was purchasing was a real item that was for sale.  Oh, the excitement!  Where does a person go from there?

I went to the shelves where T.J. Maxx sells food products and purchased three bags of coffee, two jars of roasted red peppers, and some pink Himalayan salt.  The label says that the salt is “natural”.  My cup runneth over with marketing gobbledygook.  That means words that are meaningless.  Thanks for asking.
