venial vs. mortal
Dear God, why am I so weak? Why do I say one thing but then do another? I know it’s wrong to buy $20 shoes from Urban Outfitters, I know that. But then I go shopping with teenage girls and suddenly I’m squealing with delight at the cute bags and hair-bands you have placed before me.
At least I didn’t buy the “african skimmers” pictured below. I’m pretty sure that would be a mortal-er.
