Well, yes. But they were on sale and that brand hardly EVER has a sale so really it was an investment, wasn't it? What, wait, what are
you doing? Oh no, not the armbinder again! I'll be good, I didn't spend anything on dresses today! Well apart from the red one, and that
was a bargain even you said it looked great on me....
Hywel's note: in real life Ariel does not do random profligate shoe shopping (or any other sort of shopping for that matter,
she's Mrs. Sensible. I am Dr. Spendthrift on whim. But only for technology.)
