I Want Bloody Froyo

I sat down tonight, with full intention to blog about overpriced shoes.

But instead I find myself burdened with a question: Is getting your way worth it, or gratifying if you bully your way into it?

Is owning that fabulous pair of shoes--the only pair in your size--worth snagging if you have to trip the tall leggy blonde next to your for them?

At some point I feel getting what you want might not be what you want at all if it comes at the expense of others, or at the expense of your own conscious.  The stilettos might slim your ankle and improve your posture, but is it worth the blister that will leave an unsightly scar on your pinky toe?

Right now I want froyo.  In the morning my lactose intolerance will tell me it was not the decision I wanted to make at all.  Yet, I have consumed the low-fat delicacy multiple times this week despite my tummy grumbles.  

So then why is it we as humans push so hard to get what we want if we know in the end it isn't what we wanted at all?
And if it is, is it worth a guilty conscious, or worse bloody feet and stomach cramps?

Well.. I suppose there are times we want things at the spare of the moment... impulsive buying.. without really considering all the fine details! ;o) A lot of emotions involved at times..

I should ask the same thing of my sampling of chocolate, or overindulging of curry. But damn it was good.
