Ugh.. Garden "impulse buy" today... but I like it!

Posted Mar 13 2011 12:16am

Got up early today, one of our first stops for the early morning was a nearby 'big box' hardware/garden/home improvement store.  Got - some fertilizer for the lawn, some flowers for a hanging basket, some twine, a tree saw and a 'roaming gnome.'

Yes, you heard right - a 'roaming gnome' of Travelocity fame sold in the same aisle with the solar light Buddha, the Cat with angel wings and the faux copper crane. Totally useless, totally what I wouldn't buy if I had a good night's sleep, I was a marketer's dream - I succumbed to an 'impulse buy', I hate to admit it.

If you love CBS's longstanding series, The Amazing Race , you get the significance.

Needless to say, my girls were thrilled when we brought the 'roaming gnome' home and now he (or it) has a place in the garden (this photo taken among the bamboo).  He looks happy, but 'still-faced' and stoic.

Damn those 'impulse buys', they got me this time!
