Happy Returns

OK suit
The rare suit that looks OK on me.
On Tuesday, I was in boy mode when I returned the suit I bought on Monday. I was greeted by one of the Dress Barn sales associates I have known for years.

After an exchange of long-time-no-sees, she asks if I have something for her referring to the bagged suit I am carrying.

There is a woman customer paying up at the cash register about ten feet to my left. In the past, I would have began talking in hushed tones so that the civilian would not know what was up, but I don't care anymore what others think and the sales associate's friendly, positive manner put me in a positive mood, so I did not tone it down one decibel.

"I don't look good in suits and I am returning the one I bought yesterday."

"So why would you buy a suit if you don't look good in them," the sales associate chided me jokingly.

"I was caught up in the moment. I also bought that white cable sweater dress you have for sale. It looked gorgeous on me. So I was on a roll and decided to try my luck on a suit, too."

"That happens," the sales associate replied.

I could not help noticing that the civilian was listening intently!

And so it goes.

  2. Last February, I was standing line waiting to pay for an R&M Richards party dress that was marked down to $11. The woman behind me in line quipped "Oh that dress is CUTE.. Uh.. For someone else." Without missing a beat, I said "It's for me. We're having an Oscars party and all the men are going to be in dresses!" Another register opened and she couldn't get away fast enough, so I continued with the cashier. " I already have a strapless bra and some strappy heels to go with it!" I said.
