Shopping - Despair

Shopping not only induces religious feelings in consumers, it causes anxiety and despair, too. Just as love and hate are close neighbours, so elation and despair move in close company. This young lady was late for her shopping fix. Lights were already dimming when she finally found her heart's desire, haunted by the ghosts of despair she hasted through the aisles, the fear that freezes the heart finally banished: Campbell's tomato soup might have been sold out - but it wasn't.
