1. You enter a store
2. You initially shield your eyes as it's too bright
3. Your eyes slowly become accustomed to the glare
4. Something happens
5. You walk up to the till and exchange your hard earned £ for the blinding tie
6. You leave the store with the tie, no one stops you
I'm interested in step #3
I look at that tie and I think, wow, that is just terrible. Yet, there is something about it. I can't stop looking at it. It's mesmerizing in its aqua blue 90's seaweed swirliness. I understand how you could come to own this tie. I can't condone it, but I can understand it.
