Most of us have either told or have been told to watch out for impulse buying.
Don't go food shopping on an empty stomach. My! Those Oreo's would hit the spot.
Don't go shopping with a credit card, if you don't have the cash, you don't have the need. Obviously dictated by someone who is flush.
Look before you leap. Best advice for jumping off a cliff.
Think before you act. Actors have to know their lines, of COURSE they have to think, duh.
Mostly, acting on impulse has negative connotations. Why? Really, I would like to know. Can't some good or, why stop there, GREAT things happen from following one's impulses?
I followed mine the other day. They led me to the book section of my favorite store. So far so good.
Saw, A Darker Crimson by Carolyn Jewel. ...ooooh.
Another step, I glimpsed, The Perfect Wife by Lynsay Sands....interesting.
A slide to the right brought me in front of, Crazy Cool by Tara Janzen. *groan* the pressure!
In a trance, I glided forward towards, Mortal Danger ... by Eileen Wilks. Ah , yesssss.....
I am now quivering with supressed impulse.
Very unhealthy! I need a remedy, quick!
Grab, throw, snatch, grasp and seize and toss into my cart all 4 books and trundle them away as spirited as a pirate with his discovered treasure.
The impulse to buy books is stronger than me. Doesn't matter that they'll be going into the TBR pipeline.....they're now MINE! mine, Mine MINE!!!
Do I sound demented?
Hmmm, maybe there is something to be said for impulse control.
Yeah, like Lose it!!! Bwahahaha!
