The Clearance AisleTop Story - September 2017
Everyone loves a good deal, so a clearance aisle is definitely attractive to most people. There is nothing better than a marked down item or a 50% off clearance, but are some of these deals too good to be true? Here are three things to pay attention to on any item in the clearance section.
Call Me Home
I stand alone. However, I am busy with my thoughts. The thoughts and ideas of what I must do for the rest of the day buzz around in my head. So, I don't feel alone. I pull out my phone to look at the time, but I am so deep in my thoughts that I forget my initial purpose for pulling my phone out. So, I put it away again. I stand here with all the tasks of the day screaming in my head. "Read the rest of the chapter," they say, "don't forget to take that test", they demand. I forget. I forget it all. I forget every idea, every single task, and every responsibility that I have. In this moment, as the wind billows up far behind me and pushes against my back, moving my hair and ruffling my shirt, I am sent back in time. I turn towards the wind, I feel it in my bones to turn, and as I turn, I breathe in. The carefree air enters my nose, and it feels like the air is connected to my memories. I am instantly transported back to a simpler time.
