As a confirmed and registered member of the female species, I do feel significant shame and guilt in making the following confession, but honesty and weary contempt compel me to do so at great risk to my self-esteem: I hate shopping. Yes--hate. I know, it's a big, bad word, and it would be better to temper it with something less, well, hateful, like "dislike", "don't really like" or "prefer not to", but I will stick with my original sentiment. For me, shopping is second only to doing algebra. Okay, maybe not that bad.
