I saw this dress while on my way to the gym… Which just so happens to also be the way to Goodwill… whoops. Goodwill should not be on the way to anywhere, it’s so garsh-darn distracting. Anyway, I decided to just pop in real quick and have a look around. I even decided NOT to bring any money, so that I couldn’t get distracted and skip my run. Well, then I saw this dress, spoke to it (Goodwill clothes and I have our own language), and by that time we were friends so I couldn’t just leave it there all alone among the sad smelly clothes that were so far from its equal. But there was that whole problem of not having any money… So went into the dressing room and thought… and texted my husband.
Husband: I’ll say, those are horrible workout clothes. I kid. It’s an awesome dress though, where’s the problem?
Me: I might have stopped at Goodwill just for fun on the way. I also might have found the best dress in the whole world when I have NO money. What should I do?
Husband: Ha, well you have your car. Hide it, go work out, come home, get your money, and go back to Goodwill.
Me: But what if it’s gone?!
Husband: If it’s too important to risk, come home now, if not, get it later.
Obviously I hid it (I put it in with the two piece pants suits, nobody EVER looks there, right?! Also, I’m not the only one that hides clothes so that I can buy them later right?!), drove straight home, grabbed some cash, drove RIGHT back to Goodwill, and bought the dress. It took 8 minutes to get out the Goodwill door and back again… maybe that is why I have a thrift addiction… All that work and running around and I STILL went to the gym afterwards. I must have been way less lazy than usual that day.
