When we were in Murano for the last time, I couldn’t decide whether to get a pen or not. I wanted to save money for other trips, but I also wanted a pen. So I thought about it for a while, and the pens at the shop we were in were 15 euros, including ink. Mummy helped me figure out whether I wanted it or not by saying, “Imagine we were at home and you don’t have your pen. Do you think, ‘Oh, I really wish I had gotten it,’ or do you think, ’Oh, well.’”
And I said, “I really wish I had gotten it.”
So Mummy said, ”Then get it.”
Just then, Florence came in and said, “There are some for 5 euros in a different shop. They don’t have ink and the nibs are easier to write with. The ink is only one euro. Do you want me to show you?”
“Yes, please,” I said.
So we ran to the other shop. I got it as quickly as I could, and then we ran to the others. I felt really good about my purchase. And I’m glad I got it!
