My New Cloak

Beth came to Duluth tonite because we are going to Washington together tomorrow for a sister vacay with Amy.  She brought me my birthday present.  It's a faux fur cloak.  When I saw her bringing it to the door I thought she was holding a bear cub.  I tried it on and I love it.

I'm going to wear it whenever I'm with her for the rest of my life.  Kira asked where she got it.  Turns out she got it at a gas station.  (That sounds kind of tacky, but I know the gas station she's talking about and they do have some really cute clothes. I've got other stuff from there.) Then I was saying how warm it is and she said, "I know, I used to wear it in the fish house with Lorin," and I said, "How could you wear MY new cloak ice fishing.  It's only October."  And she said, "Oh, it's not new."  She said she bought it for herself not as a joke but she decided she couldn't pull it off because as she said, "The big-breasted woman looks like a tootsie roll in a brown, stretchy cloak."  Then we were talking and I got a bit of fur in my mouth and I said, "I got a bit of fur in my mouth," and she said, "It's probably dog fur.  Tess really likes to lay on that cloak."


  1. Glamorous.
    (Maybe not sarcasm. Maybe envy. Hard to tell.) Bon voyage to you all!

  2. I have to get one! Which gas station? One Stop? or the one downtown?

    You look cute in it and I like your hair cut. Did you diy?

    Hope you have an awesome time without your kids!!!!! (so jealous)

  3. It's quite lovely and let me just say... probably more appropriate than going out in a Snuggie right? Which reminds me... no more going out in a snuggie... Have a great vacay!

  4. I would like to be involved in these conversations more often, thanks.

    So, just to be clear, she gave you a used, brown, gas station dog blanket for a birthday present!? LUCKEEEEEE!


I would love your comments.
