Six months ago, I sent my sister this picture with a text saying, “We need to get this vest.”
She quickly agreed, but neither of us purchased it. As time passed, I often thought about buying that vest. Instead of buying it, I randomly pinned images of how to wear it. Like these:
Then one day, the vest happened upon me. I was dropping off some donations at a thrift store and the woman in line ahead of me happened to be donating this:
When I had the chance, I asked for it. Surprise, surprise, it was the elusive utility vest that I wanted, but never looked for. The store offered it to me for $3! How could I say no?
