I really resent the implication that all women like to shop. Or that ONLY women like to shop. I don't think that's true.
Or maybe I'm missing some genetic code. Shopping to me is an oaccasional diversion, maybe once or twice a year I engage in "shopping" for the sake of shopping. Sort of like watching mindless television when I'm stressed and want the world to go away. I'll go down to Garden Ridge (Thanks Cindy for introducing me to the cornicopia of shopping.) or to Home Depot (must have inherited a dad gene there because I LOVE the smell of cut freshly cut lumber.)
Usually, I go shopping with a purpose. I don't go to the mall very often.
When I do go to the mall, I park near the store that I need to go to. I go into that store and I leave. Only occasionally and usually with an escort do I wonder aimlessly in the mall going from store to store --well, except those "way too trendy for me" stores like Abercrombie.
I don't think too many of my women friends like shopping for the sake of shopping. We just don't have the time. So what do you guys think? Do women shop more than men, and do we like it or is it a necessity? I mean, after all, if I quit going to the grocery store I think we'd starve to death.
