Well, my friends, this is what I came home with at the end of the afternoon:
You'll notice not an item of clothing to be seen. Instead I bought two zombie and four sci-fi books and a Star Trek mug and coaster. In my defence, I took with me the Waterstones, WHSmiths and HMV vouchers I received for Christmas. I did go into a couple of clothing stores. Honest. But I just wasn't interested in trying on bras, T-shirts, and children's trainers (I've got small feet).
I've decided that I wasn't born with the Clothing Gene; somewhere along the way I was given the Book-Buying Gene instead.
When was the last time you went shopping for a specific item and came back with something completely different? What shopping gene were you born with?
