Two days ago I placed a bid on Ebay for a Vera Bradley Folkloric Hipster purse. I had seen it at a boutique while in Nashbille but didn’t want to pay full price, so I ventured onto Ebay, my favorite site. All day I thought about that purse. Eight o’clock was nearing and I had to get my daughter into bed. I bathed her and dried her hair. I clothed her in her warm fleece pajamas. I read her favorite story to her. I rocked her. Then she got up and said, “eat!” I told her we just ate an hour ago. Of course she doesn’t understand that – she’s two!
We ventured downstairs and I got her some milk and a banana. In my mind I was thinking she’s stalling. She finished her “midnight” snack and we went upstairs. We rocked. Finally, she fell asleep. I raced to the computer screen to see those red flashing numbers 35seconds and so on. I didn’t win! I frantically typed in my search. I got lucky – there was another purse about to end in 11 minutes. I decided to use my secret weapon – auctionsniper.com! I won the second auction! What a thrill!! I now have a new purse $47.00 later. I’m happy because I didn’t pay full price. Even if I wanted to pay full price, the Vera Bradley site doesn’t even have the pattern I want.
