    retail therapy

    Dear friends...

    Had a bad week? What you need is a little retail therapy. Meet up with your friends for a quick trip to the shops, make a few [1]_______ buys, collect a few shiny carrier bags with trendy logos and you’ll be feeling better in no time. Has the boss been getting at you? A pair of designer shoes will soon put things into [2]_______.

    [1] - a) instinct; b) instant; c) impulse; d) impact
    [2] - a) dimension; b) shape; c) order; d) perspective

    Which ones would you choose?

    Many thanks

    Did you show your guesses? (I may have missed them!)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: retail therapy

    We talk about impulse buying - you see it, you want it, you buy it. (It's not very healthy buying behavior.)


    We put things into perspective. That means that we assign the right level of importance to things.
