I went there to get two. While I was there I realised I would need to get five.

The size of them meant that two, simply wouldn't satisfy your appetite?

There meaning mall Maybe did you have a prosthetic hand and had to reatach fingers? Does the items have to do with an art project? Is this realistic or more fantasy?

Would it be helpful to find out what kind of item they are?
Did you really need five all the time (say, from you left home to go to the supermarket)?
Are they consumeables that get used up little by little (Such as jars of jam)?
Things that are worn out, but with no definite 'empty' or 'used up' point in time (such as clothes)?
Will we be seeing a wedding-based puzzle from you anytime soon?
Or is this perhaps one?

Newspapers?
Did you go to the supermarket to specifically get these items? or as part of your normal shop?

Something found in most grocery stores?
Clothing item?
Office item? staple remover? pens? paper? tape? Cassette tape?
Bath item? soap?
other toiletry?
grooming item?
hair clip?
scrunchie? (sp?)

The answer to your question is no. If I use the example, the answer is yes. Good question, explore!
Are they consumeables that get used up little by little (Such as jars of jam)? No
Things that are worn out, but with no definite 'empty' or 'used up' point in time (such as clothes)? Not really, although there is a point at which they are 'useless'
Will we be seeing a wedding-based puzzle from you anytime soon? I'm still trying to think of one!
Or is this perhaps one? No, although my new husband is involved

Getting a bit warmer but still way off

Answering for the UK only, probably about one third of grocery stores provide them (my estimate only, sorry if it's completely wrong!)
Clothing item? No

other toiletry?

Batteries?

Can they be used in the home but not necessarily A holdhold item?

Did he ask you to buy them? relevant?
Did you see something in the supermarket which made you think you needed to get more than two? is there a specific reason why you decided on five rather than four or six? Was it a rollover!?

Did he suggest you bought them? did he mention he wanted to play the lottery that night? were they a present for him?
Are the selected numbers relevant?
Did you hear something in the supermarket which made you think you needed five?
Did you only have £5 on you at the time and couldn't get any more than five?

Did you think you ony had enough money for two tickets but found more money which enabled you to buy five? Did your husband know you were going to get tickets? Did you buy anything else while you were there? relevant?

Did the price of the tickets change?

Were you buying tickets with the winnings from other tickets?
Discover that you had won more than you thought?
Husband tell you to take the winnings from one (or more) ticket(s) and use it to buy more tickets?
