I haven't told Chris yet, but my goal for next summer is to buy us matching straw hats and make him come to the market with me so he can haul all my stuff around. Seeing these two last Saturday gave me the idea.
Instead I have to plan strategically - dividing the number of baskets available by the estimated current attendance at the market factoring in what percentage are likely to buy so I can calculate the probability that there will be some left when I walk by after I take all the pictures I want/need.
You see how complicated it can get. Especially if you pass by amazing flowers early on in the trip.
Sometimes there is the matter of the weight of all the things I buy slowing me down and making me break into a sweat too. Another good reason to have a porter to accompany me.
Luckily for Chris, who was sleeping peacefully when I got back home, no one had taken my bouquet with the orange thistle looking flowers by the time I got back to buy them. I would have hated to wake him up and let him know it was his fault that I didn't come home with the flowers I wanted.
