Last week, I was in line at a Norwegian grocery store named Joker (which only reminds me of THE Joker, you know the one). I wore my new Marc by Marc Jacobs trench coat and a cup of coffee from Kaffebrenneriet. One clerk yelled to the other that he was out of bags. In an attempt to hold on to my Canadian friendliness, I offered to grab a stack of bags from one clerk and heave it over to the other. Long story short, I completed my task and spilled coffee all over my jacket.
After some panicked googling, I rushed it over to the closest dry cleaners and made them promise to fix it.
Fast forward to this week. I paid my student loans, bought groceries and quickly checked my account to see that I had enough money to pay the dry cleaning bill. I did, but then that’s it. I’ve been struggling to get money out of my paypal account for a week and a half and it still isn’t sorted, I have more bills incoming, and none of the jobs I’ve applied for have gotten back to me. Right now is not the best time to be me.
I was damned close to crying at the dry cleaners today. That’s the most expensive piece of clothing I’ve ever bought. And I broke it in less than a month. I’m telling you all so you can remind me next time I’m in a store: I’m not grown up enough for pastels and whites.
