Impulse buy

I had no intention of buying a new racket when I stepped into Sports Chalet. But I headed over to the racket section to do what I thought would be the usual browsing. And there it was -- the Prince 03 Blue I've been craving, and $10 off to boot. I was in a good mood, having just come off the tennis court (senior men's practice at Freedom High). I just thought, "you want it, just get it." And so I did. Let's just consider it a late birthday present to myself. So now I've got the racket I'll probably use for the next 10 years. I'm very pleased. Will it make me a better player? I'm sure it won't. But I've got a cool racket, and that's all that matters.
