BKM understands?

March 16, 2010

The temptress is home.  The price was disclosed to BKM, along with the “what a bargain” story — in four part harmony.  (I’m still holding the retail tag in reserve for the inevitable rainy day.)

I wore the coat and took her out for coffee.  She allowed as how it looked okay.  But I sort of  “lawyered” the answer to her question about what the coat was made out of.  I suddenly got a flash of what this thrifty Norse girl’s reaction might be if I admitted that it was essentially canvas, albeit, a very fancy, treated canvas.

The link is too close for comfort.  I’m not ready to respond to, “A hundred and forty bucks for a canvas coat?!  I don’t care what you call it!  Jesus H. Christ!  You can’t go anywhere by yourself!”

    Actually the coat is only about $75.00. The rest of the price is the labor to create all those pockets.
