If only you were here

The signs are everywhere. Red, white, yellow, green… They pop up on streets, at roadsides. They stare at me out of magazines and newspapers and even from the television. They inundate malls, flood stores. I switch on the Internet and there they are tempting, beckoning, begging me.

Take a look, they say, come on in. What are you waiting for? They ask.

I turn away. I cannot answer their call.

You dear sister sit far away in another city. All these signboards shouting out SALE are no fun without you, the best shopping partner ever.

If only you were here!
