I don't need this shirt from Thug Life Shirts but I want it. It's every thing I am. It's the ultimate truth. For those reasons, you could argue that I need it. I also don't need this Diptyque candle, mainly because it's $68 or something. I've also never smelled a $68 candle before, so I guess you could say that I need to experience that. That means I need the candle too.
I don't need an iPad mini either, as I have both a MacBook and an iPhone. But think of all the extra notes I could take in class with this slim and luxurious thing! I could finally get started on my novel! (Everyone needs to write a novel!) and I could read more classic literature. It's kind of essential. I know you're gonna tell me I don't need a 50mm lens for my camera either, but it will make my photography a million times better, which may lead to me being a better person in general. This camera lens may lead to me saving the world, you never know.
I probably don't need new makeup brushes either. I can just use stuff like... I don't know, my fingers or sticks or something. Heaven forbid I use the applicators that come with the products, what am I, a beast?!
I know what you're thinking. Jess, you REALLY don't need that beehive cookie jar. You're probably right, nobody really needs all those cookies. But you know what everyone does need? FRIENDS. If I don't give my friends cookies, they'll probably leave me for someone who does supply cookies. I need this cookie jar to make sure my friends stay in my life, duh. That Banned Books Mug, who needs that? Me, that's who! How will anyone know I'm a literature nut if I don't carry around a mug proclaiming that I've read all of the most controversial books ever written. How will anyone know I'm way more educated and awesome than them? They won't, and that's why I need this mug.
You probably think I don't need an Edgar Allan Poe bobblehead, but I know I do. He's the father of American suspense and horror! If I don't buy this bobblehead, I might as well give up on wanting to become a teacher. How will any of my students ever respect me if my future desk doesn't include a Poe figurine? I'm sure you're about to say I really don't need this William Shakespeare inspired shirt either. You're wrong. I need to show others that I appreciate classic things while staying up to date on pop culture. It just so turns out that Shakespeare is one of my baes, so how dare you say I'm being frivolous!
What things do you want but not need?
Try and convince me that you need them!
