If you are unaware, this is bonding language. It's like guys patting each other on their booties at football games. "I hate you" is a good thing. A compliment. High praise from my friend, Mayron. My insides fluttered. She liked the brushes!
When we made it to our destination, (Town Square Mall, 102 College St in Sulphur Springs 903-438-0286), we split up and started looking. I found several nice pieces. But, my heart went pitter patter when my eyes rested on these file cabinets. They were primitive. Hand made. And come to find out, made out of old apple crates. How could I pass up these works of art? OH. The price would be the determining factor. Indeed. My budget was not going to budge for these treasures. Gloom, despair and agony on me.
I picked out some under $10 items and made it up to the register. Tony, the big man of the establishment, assured us that dealers are willing to make deals at this place. And if we saw something we liked, be sure to mention it and he'd see what he could do. Me, in my most sincere, "I am poor" voice said "Well, unless you have a buy one get one free special going on, I doubt I'll be getting what I want". When I told him that I liked the file cabinets, he said that they were his and that I could, indeed have them, two for the price of one.
I didn't hear her through my giddy excitement, but I know good and well that Mayron said it again. "I hate you."
Can you feel the love?
