Last year around October 2009, our country was hit hard by a typhoon. Hard rain and flood for almost a week, no electricity for almost a month. Anyway as usual what comes up after calamity are people having panic attacks, specifically panic buying for groceries. So one night after I got off from work, there's another news that another typhoon was about to hit us so I decided to buy groceries in case of emergencies. The grocery store near our apartment happens to stand right beside the bookstore. Since it was still early I decided to step into the bookstore first and 'scan' through potential books that might interest me (taking note of the word scan not buy).
I don't really know what happened, one minute I was entering the bookstore, with my ipod in hand trying to find a good song to match my mood, and the next thing I know I was exiting the bookstore with a book in tow. A book which is not in my budget and which cost 3 times more than the grocery I intended to buy. *Deep Sigh* So I went home empty handed of groceries, put plastic cover on my new book, locked my bedroom door, turn off the light, turn on my bed lamp, curled in my bed, hug my favorite pillow and started reading my unexpected compulsive extravaganza. I figured my brother wouldn't let me go hungry when the typhoon strikes.
Good thing it didn't hit our country...*Whew*
