And I was too embarrassed to admit I'd never heard of it.
But I looked it up PDQ and it went to the top of my true thrift grail list. Took me about a year.
I also promptly began trolling ebay and SF for Marinella and now have a nice little petting zoo of my own.
So thanks, E. Just one of the many lights you've brought into my life.
Do NOT get all the Polo nonsense. Most of what people go nuts over us F-U-G-L-Y. Couldn't care less about a skeet. Just couldn't.
Hit my local with 15 minutes to close knowing I had $0 in my wallet, had left my checkbook at home and they only took cash or check. Saw the Drakes "Made in England tageroo on the back of a PS tie and knew I'd be making the CVS cashback sprint for like the millionth time in my life. You'd think at my age I'd be too old or at least wise enough to avoid this.
But you'd be wrong.
This was all later in the day, after I hauled the 2 younger girls (youngest of whom doesn't walk or talk) to the largest (and easily most crowded) bi-annual community tag sale in the area, and was informed on the way in that the fire marshal has forbidden strollers. Did this prevent me from getting 100% cashmere overcoat and about a dozen ties? Nope.
Older of the two girls talked her way into a Disney Princess bike too.
Me: Don't we have that already?
Me: Are you sure
Her: Definitely not
(Later) Me: Look, it's exactly like this bike right here.
Her: No. This one has yellow.
My mistake was believing I didn't need to cross examine my own children.
