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."
