Expository [SOCS]

Experiences over things” is another one of those irritating expressions that people parrot mindlessly. I used to see it creep onto dating profiles before I exited that whole expanse of pants. πŸ˜›

What does it mean? Welp, let me explain. Instead of buying Mom a nice cupcake-scented candle or a cute kitty tee shirt for Mother’s Day, take her to Tahiti. Don’t get Dad a boring tie for Father’s Day either ~ think of the wasteful packaging! Consider doing something more fun like taking him ziplining over the Amazon. Dads love that! Put the expense on his credit card. πŸ˜‚

People without a lot of money have always been creating experiences. Family dinners, picnics, BBQs, potlucks, game nights, a day at the beach/lake/park, etc. are all part of normal life for everyday folks. It’s only now that the rich have discovered they haven’t been spending enough time with people who matter that they’ve come up with this absurd phrase. πŸ™„

Also, for anyone who may be related to me: I still expect the candle and tee shirt.

Mother’s Day is May 12. 🌷

  2. I’ve actually never heard that expression before. Maybe because I appreciate things over experiences. But I don’t where ties anymore, so not one of those things, please.

  3. Also, I’ve learned that people feel love differently. Some people don’t want to go anywhere and some are happy with a simple kind word or a thoughtful gift.

  6. I do love a good candle. Is the candle, t-shirt, AND a nice dinner out an option? I’ll take that one, please. πŸ˜‰
