Reasons to shop

Brainstorming for ideas for a multibrand retail outlet, we were thinking of the reasons to shop. We sat aroud the table, 5 of us and came up with the following:

Reason 1: You have a birthday coming up.

Reason 2: You have a wedding coming up.

Reason 3: You have a house warming.

Reason 4: Your boss is throwing a party.

Reason: 5:You are meeting old friends.

Reason 6: You have an official trip.

Reason 7: You are going on a holiday.

Reason 8: Your neighbour recently went shopping.

Reason 9: You saw something on the shop window.

At this point, our lunchtime friend, Maria from the finance department, walks in. It is almost lunchtime. She smiles pleasantly and said, "Hey, I I won't be able to join you for lunch today".

"Why?", we chorus.

" I have to go shopping with my mum"

"Oh!Anything special?", ask I.

"Nothing much. You see the funeral of uncle John is on Friday and both of us don't have something proper to wear."

Seeing our bewildered looks, she added," see... in shades of cream or is custom." 

Reason 10: You have a funeral coming up.
