I tried to pull away to no avail.
She had me in a corner.
I knew it, and so did she.
She saw me hesitate.
She saw me try desperately to pull away.
I looked for an escape route; I found none.
Her friendliness was my undoing.
With each smile, she drew me in.
Her understanding anecdotes snared me.
I hoped she wasn’t the one at the cashier’s desk.
I wanted to sneak out of the shop without buying anything.
I was out of luck for she was the one at the checkout counter.
She zeroed in on each hesitation I had.
She pulled them out by the roots.
She had me fair and square.
Oh! Silly me.
Why did I buy what I didn’t need?
Next time I will be less gullible.
I will eat before going window shopping!
