More than a little grim, but: what outfit would you like to be buried in when you clock out from this here mortal coil? Your blog is rad as the dickens, by the way- I like the thrifty approach and interesting combinations. I had to bookmark as soon as I saw "Gingham Hound." -Ben W.
I imagine I should go out the same way I came in: birthday suit. But probably whatever would make my family the happiest. I guess what you’re wearing doesn’t really matter at that point. I mean you can’t take it with you right? Unless you’re a Pharaoh.
your wife has a lot of high end items, i take it what you save on she spends on the big ticket items?
She works in the business world though. Plus, she eBay’s and thrifts with the best of them. I’ve thought about buying more expensive things, but I’d probably just get chalk or pen ink or the tears of failing students all over it.
I haven’t in several years. In fact, I can’t remember the last thing I bought that was over $90. Between thrift stores, eBay and sales, I can pretty much always find what I want for under $90. It does require patience though, but as a teacher I have plenty of that anyway.
Did you grow up with this type of thing in mind? Were you planning to be this cool when you grew up?
Coolness is in the eye of the beholder and I’m an introvert at heart. I think being cool is staying true to one’s self and not caring what others think. So, in my opinion, I’ve been about the same level of cool since elementary school.
