I heart Target...
For all of you Americans - you can just stop reading now. I mean you can read, but this is a silly Canadian getting excited about a fairly "average" store for you guys. Or if you are expecting something deep, also stop reading now.
Target. Oh the joy! There I was on Sunday, having some lunch with my pro shopper Stefanie Fraser and she is telling me about the Crystal Light flavors at Target. So did I go home and watch the superbowl? (no, c'mon I'm not an American) Did I go do my homework? Nope, you guessed it. I went to Target. It kind of is materialism gone mad for me, but I love the silly little things we can't buy in Canada. Like Diet Cherry Coke. Check! And Orbit gum. Check! And nice tank tops for below 20 bucks. Check! And Kit Kat Milkshake (what the??) I was a happy girl.
So yes, I am very proud to be a Canadian. But also happy that I have the ability to cross that border and buy some goods that only sell to the mass market of the USA. Its' a good life. With this in mind, I will go reflect on my Moral Issues and Ethics class topic: Consumerism taking over society.
