Unlikely to be as well received as Monday's, but it was cold and inclement, and I rocked the hell out of this Anderson & Sheppard CORDUROY suit.

I have been searching for a pair of boots such as these for over a year now!
I didn't have a story to add to the recent ...
...until this week. Now I do.
On Tuesday, I was at Zip's Dry Cleaning ($2 for ANY garment! SRSLY!) waiting for a cotton PRL sport coat that I had in for a spot on the lapel. The gentleman next to me was also waiting for a shirt that had not been included in his last lot and the manager was looking for it. The man, in his late 60's or early 70's, was becoming agitated at the loss of his prized, short sleeved white shirt.
"It's a Claybrooke
!" he stated with authority. "I just KNEW they would lose it!", he said, mostly to me as if seeking validation for his loss.
Just then, the manager came out from his office, triumphantly carrying the man's shirt and held it up for his approval, displaying the collar tag for identification purposes.
"Oh yeah. Stafford
! That's right!", he proclaimed. He looked at me again so that I could bask in his fantastic stroke of luck. "How fortunate for you," I murmured and as I inched slowly away to the other side of the lobby, I could feel my skin shriveling from my body.
But wait. There's more. (Click to show)
As I age, I find that I have holes in my memory and I kept forgetting "Claybrooke" as the brand he thought he had lost. I feared that by the time that I would be able to type this, it would be completely gone from my brain cells. The last time I recalled it (yesterday morning in the shower
), I used a little memory helper so that I wouldn't forget again. I knew that the name began with the letter "C" and I told myself to just think of Brooke Shields to help remember. As I was typing this morning, all I could think of was Britney Spears. I was completely lost and then a commercial came on TV featuring...BROOKE SHIELDS!
