Hey, Where’d You Get Your…?

Posted by on Jul 18, 2012

Today something happened to me that has happened many times before. But this time, it was different. This time, it got me thinking…

It started with a simple question from a stranger walking by on the streets: “Hey, where’d you get your boots?!” The answer was simple, and I was actually quite proud. “Oh, hey. These things?! They were from Target – would you believe?!” I kept walking. She followed.

“Target?! No way! Which line are they?” I had to think for a moment. “Ummm… They’re by Dolce Vita. Yea, when they did that little capsule collection.” I kept walking. She followed.

“Oh, wow! I love Dolce Vita. How much?!” Alright, lady. This was starting to get outta hand. But again, I was flattered and quite proud of the bargain I’d snatched. “They were on sale when I got ‘em – $6 bucks! Hel-lo!” My face shone with bliss. I love a good deal. I kept walking. Her ass followed. Now, I was beginning to get annoyed…

“No way! Which location?!” Are you kidding me? “You know, I was in another state when I bought ‘em. Georgia, actually. Atlanta.” Still walking. Still being followed.

“Hmmm, how recently?! I wonder if the one by my apartment in Brooklyn has ‘em.” Finally – a chance to shut her down! “This was over a year ago. Check online, they may be floating around on eBay. Have a great day!” Whew. That was intense. *wipes single sweat bullet from forehead* *dusts off boots from walking two extra blocks with crazy stranger*
