The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Actually, the convo with the Absent-Minded Professor, while he was kindly snapping these pics, went rather like this:
AMP: “Why are you carrying a purse with water stains on it?
AMP: “Your purse. It has water stains on it.”
Me: “These aren’t water stains. This is a map of the world! You’re supposed to intuit ‘BIG DUMMY’ here…”
AMP: “Oh. Looks like water stains to me.”
Me: “This is an Alviero Martini 1A Classe purse from one of his earlier Geocollections. These bags start at several hundred dollars new. I paid $6 for mine at the GoodWill!”
AMP: “I’m telling you, Honey, looks like water stains to me.”
This is from the man that can’t tell you what I’m wearing even on the days he takes a dozen pics for me.
But he does have a point. What looked like a great leather bag with a world map on it, perfect for an immigration paralegal, could be mistaken for a rather beat-up water-stained purse carried by a poor paralegal. However, I am sticking by my map o’ th’ world like glue.
Has your SO ever innocently deflated your style balloon?
P.S. I left out the picture of my new Target pencil skirt from my recent GoodWill and Salvation Army tours:
