New clothes

May 23rd, 2006 at 12:26 am

This morning I walked past a store which was advertising, buy $100 worth of clothes and get a free pair of jeans. In another shop window there was a poster which read "My life changed since I got my Grab jeans." Well, I have had some events that changed my life: death of a parent, birth of a baby, moving to another country, developing a major illness, but I honestly can't say my life has ever been altered by buying clothes, regardless of what I believed as a teenager.

So I walked on to the Red Cross opportunity shop and they were having a $1 a bag sale. I got 3 pairs of trousers, 2 skirts, 2 blouses, 3 jerseys and 1 dress for $2. I don't think I'll need to buy any more outer clothes for a year, only socks shoes and underwear.

    My life changed in the 7th grade when I got my Norman deRose jeans. I'd paid $35 of my hard-earned berry picking money for them. What changed my life? The fact that I realized that those jeans were not any better or worse than the $10 jeans from Sears and they were not worth the 35 five gallon buckets of berries I picked to earn just those jeans. That was 2 days wages for me at age 12.

    On the other hand, I still have the 10 speed Nishiki bicycle ($200) that I bought with the rest of my berry money that summer. The difference between long-term value and short-term flauntiness, learned at that age, has always stuck with me. So the jeans changed my life!
