Ah, it's not often that one scores such a major win. You see, some months back I saw a nice black turtleneck, cotton and silk and cashmere, on super duper sale. And so I ordered it. And it was excellent. So comfy and warm. Just perfect. My new item of choice.
Fast forward to today. It dawned chilly and drear. And I thought that that shirt would be just perfect. But where was it? In my closet? No. On my desk? No. Hanging on a doorknob? No. Being used as a pillow by my spoiled dog? No.
Aughhhh! I want it!
Now the usual outcome in such a case is to be frustrated and eventually give up. BUT, for once I had a different route to take. Because, in a rare fit of foresight, when I saw how nice the shirt was way back when I bought it, I thought to myself "What if someday something happens to this great shirt and I'm left shirtless? Hmmmm. I know! Since it's on sale, I'll order a second one!"
And so I did. Not only that, but I actually remembered where I'd stashed the unopened package. Grab/rip/ahhhhhh. So warm and cozy. Your pal Crowden's a happy cartoonist once more.
