It’s been a pretty intense week. Well, actually, very few things happened, but so little happens to me that this seemed like a lot.
Firstly, I LOVE THRIFT STORES. Where else can you buy 4 items of clothing for under 500 pesos? I have some fabulous stuff. They look vintage. Yeah, baby. Come to think of it, they smell very vintage, too. You know, the kind that’s been stuffed in a chest, or in the back of a closet, along with the rest of the I-can-never-wear-this-again things. Sometimes it is lovely to be a size Hang on, what size am I?
Probably a 2. And a tall 2, at that.
Ina got some pretty fantabulous things too. Like a party dress made of turquoise velvety goodness, and a cream quilted parka with a fur-lined detachable hood! Not that I have any idea where she can wear it to, unless we’re vacationing in Baguio. Oh, but it will come in handy during Sta. Rosa church services, where the guy who controls the temperature is obviously from Alaska.
Ina just suggested that he may have been from Egypt, where he was seriously deprived of air-conditoning during his childhood, and is now making up for it by blasting cold air at us until our ears feel like falling off and we wish Pastor Mike would say something funny so we can move a little bit and get warmer.
