the swaddle

Monday, June 1, 2009

Ahhh....I feel like I am still in bed - with this big cozy wrap.To be told truth, it is a blanket that we got from the home furnishing department of The Warehouse - which is equivalent to the State's Walmart?. Their slogan is "..where everyone gets a bargain". O yea, that's right, it was a bargain for $20 (NZD) which is what... about $10 USD?

And here's a little funny story that took place in an upscale high street boutique.

dude sales assitant = d.s.a

//d.s.a (curious look) : hi just wondering where did you get your wrap/scarf thing?

//me (embarassingly) : you don't wanna know.

//d.s.a (bummed out) : is it from overseas?

//me : nope. okay, it's from The Warehouse.

//d.s.a (eyes widened and took a step back) : o really? no way!

//me : its in the home furnishings department

//d.s.a : right i'm gonna go get myself some. (rants on about mixing it up = A Wang + The Warehouse) thanks for telling me.
