*After getting a phone call from my dear brother, I decided to clarify a segment of this story. When they said that they only take clothes that are "in" this season, they were referring to fashion. I brought them all winter clothes. :)
I found this clothing resale show outside of Willowbrook mall called Plato's Closet. We just recently cleaned out clothes and before I took them to Goodwill, I thought I would try to see if I could make a few bucks off of them. I had very nice sweaters, a great pair of Banana Republic pants, jeans, khakis, etc. I also had a few items in there that were not so great, but thought I would try. They looked through my stack of clothes, sorting them out and looking at them thoroughly. When they were finished she gave me $20 bucks for the stack of the not so great clothes. I said, "What about all of the "nice" clothes in those bags?" She responded, "Well, we only take clothes that are in this season." I almost laughed in her face because the clothes she took were far from being "in". However, considering the merchandise that were on the racks, someone needs to give them a lesson in fashion or hire me as their manager and I could make them some money. Not that I am the most stylish...but I have some sort of clue.
There was another woman there with her child waiting. He was a a cute little guy and he was going nuts waiting along with my two boys. Evidently this little boy was 10 1/2 months weighing in at 26 pounds. WOW! His name was Hagen and I was very curious about where she got the name from. "Well, my husband chews Copenhagen." Wait a minute...rewind! HUH? I am not sure what my face exactly looked like after she told me because she went on to tell me more..and maybe fibbed a bit to make it sound not as bad. She said she really liked the name and when she realized what tobacco her husband chewed it made it that much easier to get what she wanted. The mother quickly added, "Well, I will never tell him that is where he got his name." Something tells me that it will not take that long.
