a) Shopping is a great stress-buster (if you don't run out of money and go the 'bankrupt' way in the procedure, that is!)..The excitement after buying all the new stuff is incomparable..(most of us are new-fangled, aren't we?)
b) Shopping enhances decision-making, improves debating skills(ever tried explaining your mum why the stuff you chose is better than that of what she did..), makes you confident of yourself(Owe it to bargaining or walking out without buying a thing after bugging the dealer while he unpacks the whole store for madame in search of the best):P
c) And if you are one of those lazy jackasses, then you'd be enlightened by the fact that Shopping is the best exercise...It is equivalent to a 1 hour jog in the morning...screening of all the shops, running from one to another, bargaining, trying to make the best deal...now how it exerts your legs and your mouth too!!!Wish to twist and turn your arms equally?? Go, try all the trendy outfits in the market..(But Beware! Trying causes Craving!And if you are not really up for buying it, then don't go one after the another..coz Craving is bad!!)
d) Not only does it give satisfaction to the shopping-thirsty souls, it also induces a lot of hunger of food, which is quite beneficial for health(now that's a different story that we always end up eating junk..)
e) And for the people in hunt of Bird-watching, well what should I say??Ummm...Shopping provides opportunities for the activity in abundance..:P :D

WHEN MUM AND DAUGHTER(D) WENT SHOPPING
Sitting idle in one corner of the room..Suddenly the door opens..
Mum: I want to buy this XYZ stuff..Will you accompany me?
A flash of lightning in the wicked and naughty side of the daughter's brain,"Ahhh!!Good opportunity to blackmail!"
D(pretending to do work): I've got a lot of college work...I won't be able to come..Take Sis with you!
Mum: C'mon!I'd need your opinion...
D: Noooo...I'm very busyy..I won't be able to make it..
Mum(with a mischievous smile): You were asking for a new pair of jeans, nah..!!I thought I'd buy you that..But If you really don't want to come, it's ok!
Oho!!Mama strikes while the iron is hot..
D: Yeah..yeah!!My work's about to get over..Let's go!!
Scene-2(In the market)
Mum gets her job done and then turns to D..
Mum: Ok!!So now what do you want?
D: What do you mean by 'What do you want'??You'd promised me a pair of jeans..
Mum(trying and make excuses work): No! I was thinking you already have a nice collection...So why don't you buy a pair of gloves or a nice muffler..Winters are approaching near..
Whach!!Tit for Tat!!
D asks the shopkeeper for jeans..Mum standing aside knowing what's coming...knowing the stubborn 'Nakhrebaaz' D..
The display begins..
D: yeah..show some more...
Shopkeeper: Mam..the size is fine?
D: The size is, but not the style..Don't you have the low waist, slim fit ones?
Shopkeeper: No mam..they are not available right now..visit us next week...
D: Why don't you check the stock once..please please!!
Mum: Let's go...there are other shops too!!
D: But the colour is not fine...I want black..
D: No! I want black only! I'd have no other!
D: No...It should look as if it was made for me...The fitting is really not that good...
Mum breathing a sigh of relief...vows she won't ask her to accompany again...though we know Mothers!!For them, "A daughter in need (of shopping, helping in kitchen, etc. etc.) is a daughter indeed!"
D: Hey sis!!Check out my muffler! Look, I also got these gloves...The colour is good, nah!!!
Sis: yea! i ike the checks on them..
They were good, indeed!!
