I AM A SUCKER

i think i may have this tattooed on my forehead. and if i don't have one there already, i should just get it done and over with...

last night, this cute little boy came by selling magazine subscriptions. steve was at the gym. shit. i knew i should've gone to the gym... but i was cooking dinner. so, he comes by, gives me the sell... and i buy it.

i got ripped off. of course.

why couldn't it have been an ugly obnoxious kid that came over??? then i probably wouldn't have had a problem telling him i wasn't interested. but he was so charming and cute. god, i hate that kid. if i ever see him in my neighborhood, i'm going to... probably do nothing and scurry off.

i sent off a cancellation letter today. i hope he doesn't know it was me. fuck, why do i even care???

just one more reason why we can't have kids. i will never be able to say no to them and they'll turn out to be little spoiled brats.

steve, you may want to get me a "no solicitors" sign for our front door. i'm going to need it next week when you're gone.

Cute little kids don't know what "no solicitors" means. Put up "No cute children" instead. It'll make you real popular with the neighbors.

Ah! I really must be a bitch, then. I can say easily tell them no without a second thought. No matter how cute or how deep their dimples are... and I love kids.

Do you have any idea how much wrapping paper and cookie dough I have bought from the kids on my block? I am a damn sucker. I feel your pain.

The only thing I'm a sucker for is girl scout cookies.

I have no problem saying "no" to little kids selling crap. Why? I used to sell cheap ass jewelry as part of school fundraisers and I was darn uncomfortable doing it. So, I think the "uncomfortableness" should be passed on.

jeremy: you're right... but... gawd! why are kids so illiterate these days???

i never buy girl scout cookies from the little girls that stalk me in front of ralph's. i usually end up buying a shitload from the random people at work who all seem to have a niece/ granddaughter/ daughter/ goddaughter/ friend's daughter in the girl scouts...

GAWD, i'm a puss.

The little neighbor boys are super-cute and I always buy stuff from them but last time I never got my little silver coffee scooper so Alex better stay away from my door with his fundraising catalog next year. I'm still bitter.
