I'm Off

Well, I'm headed off for my relaxing spa 24 hours. And not a moment to soon.

This morning I was completely abused at the fruit and vegetable market near our house.

I entered at a different place than I normally do and was instantly bombarded by two competing, over-zealous fruit men offering me all sorts of "bargains". Long story short-I ended up with 8 mangoes (I already had 3 at home), a little bag of strawberries that I soon figured out cost me 3X what other vendors were charging, and little slice of watermelon. Because I spent all my money between these two guys (I didn't want to make one feel bad by only buying from the other-totally manipulated-I know!) I didn't get the things I really needed. I'm sure those two jerks are still laughing about it.

I really hate feeling taken advantage of.

My maid just chuckled and told me I should walk around and see everything first, before I buy anything. Ya think? I just got totally flustered. Oh well.

It will just make my massage feel that much better.

Have a great weekend!

I can already see the stress beginning to melt away...even if for only 24 hours ;)

I hope you relish every moment.

Hahaha--we went to that market last Friday and got ripped off on mangoes too. Oops. Of course, we were tourists, you're supposed to be a native by now;)

Enjoy your spa day! That is such a great gift. It's good that you're using it right away too--I always try to "save" gifts like that until I "really need" them, and then end up not using them.
