I was shopping in the Lands’ End section of Sears last week. Working in the section were two friendly woman who helped me find sizes and colors. They were great.
Because of their help I found lots to buy– which meant that it took them a long time to take the shoplifter tags off my clothes, to fold the clothes, to swipe the price tags, to subtract the sale discounts, to re-calculate the total, and then to put the clothes into the shopping bags.
Naturally we got talking while all this was going on.
We agreed that Lands’ End 100% cotton tops– of all sorts– are just about the best thing ever. I mentioned that most of my Lands’ End tops are for daily wear, but that I also buy a few larger ones to use a tops with flannel jammie bottoms. I find that the turtlenecks, in particular, are very cozy in bed at night in the winter.
Well, both women began to laugh– and out came a story.
Earlier that day a customer had said the same thing that I did… and then she had gone on to explain in-depth why she liked to wear these tops to bed. Apparently, she liked the Lands’ End 100% cotton tops because that meant when she got up in the morning she didn’t have to get dressed.
Instead, she just put on a large sweatshirt over her sleeping ensemble, added shoes and a coat– then went out the door on her daily errands to places like the grocery, drug store, post office. In fact they told me, she said that winter was her favorite time of year because she could wear the same clothes for 24 hours straight!
People tell me lots of stuff, and usually I kind of have an inkling of where the story is going, but this one caught me unawares. I started laughing wondering if these women thought I might be doing the same thing! I couldn’t talk fast enough to assure them that I don’t wear the same Lands’ End 100% cotton shirt around the clock.
Nope, not me. I, at least, keep my Lands’ End 100% cotton shirts divided between daytime wear– and nighttime wear. ‘Cuz I’m classy like that.
