Adventures of the Crazy Owl Lady

I've been collecting owls for awhile now. My mom says that my apartment looks like "a crazy owl lady lives there". Most of them I have bought from garage sales and thrift shops and I usually give them a little makeover with paint. Anyway, my mom and I went to our favorite thrift store for a little treasure hunt this afternoon and someone had donated a who...le collection of owl figurines to the store. There must have been at least 40 figurines of various sizes. I picked out some little brass owls and a woman shopping next to me picked out the other brass owls I had been eyeballing. The nerve! I kicked myself for not grabbing them fast enough. This triggered some sort of crazed lady inside me. I kindly asked her if she was set on buying said owls and of course she said yes. I seriously wanted to grab them out of her cart and run to the cash register. Insane, right? I'm not proud of myself. So, the moral of the story is that I should never be allowed out of the house on Black Friday, if there are owl items on sale.
