Buy Christmas lights- a Short Article

Buy Christmas lights
Halfway through hanging the lights on the Christmas tree, half of the string of lights went dark. I desperately tried to find the faulty bulb so that I could change it and solve the problem, but was not in the least successful. My husband and son were less than thrilled since we were almost completely done. Suddenly, I needed to go out and buy Christmas lights. The guy didn't want to go with me, so I headed to my local Target buy myself. I figured it wouldn't be that difficult to buy Christmas lights. I was very wrong. Apparently, everyone else had the same idea as I did, because all of the boxes of white Christmas lights were gone. How hard could it be to find and buy Christmas lights? Apparently more difficult than I'd anticipated. There were several boxes of blue or red lights, blinking lights, multi-colored - everything but white. I despise anything but white lights.
So, I headed for Wal-Mart to buy Christmas lights. By this time, I was not too happy. My entire day was being wasted because of one faulty light bulb that wouldn't identify itself. The last thing I wanted to do two weeks before Christmas was go shopping to buy Christmas lights. I should be wrapping presents or baking cookies. Nonetheless, my goal was to buy Christmas lights and finish my day of decorating. I fought the parking lot crowd and made my way through the holiday shoppers into the store. I found the Christmas aisles to be almost completely empty. I was a bit nervous that I would not be able to buy Christmas lights in this store either. However, I managed to find several boxes of white Christmas lights and I clung to them for dear life. I dashed for the checkout counters to accomplish my goal - buy Christmas lights. With any luck, I'd be home in an hour and dinner wouldn't be too terribly late.
I stood in line for almost twenty minutes holding onto my measly boxes of lights. Everyone around me had their arms full of gifts. I felt a bit odd standing among these holiday shoppers just to buy Christmas lights. After I paid for them, I dashed home. As we were
continuing our decorating of the tree and wrapping the brand new lights around it again, I told my son and husband about needing to go to two different stores. My husband asked me why I didn't just ask my mother if I could have some of her extra lights; she stocked up on every color of lights at the end of every season. He told me that I shouldn't have had to buy Christmas lights, I could have just asked her to borrow some. He waited until now to make me aware of this? I wanted to throw his presents out the first story window.
