A Noteworthy Event

I bought a new coat today.

Now, before anyone tries to tell me that my previous statement comes under the "nobody cares what you had for lunch" rule of blogging, let me explain something. That statement is a very noteworthy one, in that it affects each and every one of you.

No, it's not noteworthy that I got a wool coat for $60, though I think that's pretty cool. And it's not either so noteworthy that MP likes my coat. (Actually, I think that's something to be ashamed of!)

It's noteworthy in the same sense as my carrying an umbrella in the same city as you is noteworthy. My umbrella, though a shlep for me, is an insurance policy for the rest of the town that no rain will fall, no hair will frizz, and no clothes will get soaked. No matter what the weather forecast is, no matter what the clouds look like, if someone nearby is holding an umbrella you simply won't get wet.

And that, my friends, is why my coat purchase is so monumental to all of you. I forked over $60 so the rest of the world won't have to suffer through cold winters, through snowstorms and sleet, through frost and wind. See, I bought a coat, it won't be cold. Trust me.

You may all say thank you now.

My town won't need their coats either...I got a coat today too...down and I spend 70 bucks...I don't have an MP but my mother likes it- and I'm not ashamed of that :P

Thank you.
I'd like to know where you found a stylish (as evidenced by MP's approval) wool coat for sixty dollars!
If you tell me, I might thank you a second time.
I've been wearing the same tired old worn out puffy coat for more years than I care to remember....

Tembow- My former high school classmates actually made a point of picking out wool coats that weren't black- think pink, green, blue...
And you got a good sale- now let's hope you can get a refund on your insurance policy if it doesn't pan out.

But yes, I must thank you for purchasing a new coat cuz the weather these past few days has been beautiful!! It's summer outside! Hope it continues...and thank you, thank you!! You do deserve credit for that!
And I just bought myself boots for less than $40 and now look at this weather!! :-p

Freeda- lol, I dunno what is worse. Mom's approval or MP's. Kinda opposite but both bad ;-)

G6- you won't need it. My warm winter will be a global event. Please don't tell Al Gore.

TB-Mine is. Lol. Maybe I shouldn't say that, people will know I'm the girl in the black coat. :-P

TOL- you're awesome!

MS- You must be joking. It's in my closet! Spending the money on it should be enough, no?

Inspired-My pleasure, really. :-)

NMF- they had a purple coat but purple makes me think of my mother. I don't care of it is in style. Ugh.

IAG- hey, with your boots and my coat we should be all covered!

SA- shouldn't someone else do a little community service?
