New Hat

Posted in Buggle Bite at 9:45 pm by Momma

Last night was Moonlight Madness in good ole downtown Sitka. For those of you who aren’t familiar with “The Madness,” let me explain. All the shops downtown stay open until 8:00 and offer MAJOR deals. By major deals I mean they try to sell you all their left over crap that they couldn’t convince the tourists to buy. Think down south “day after thanksgiving sale” at the dollar tree. Nonetheless, Auntie Jill and I hit every store on the strip, just in case we got lucky and found that one “gotta have” item. Let me add we also braved the freezing cold and the POURING down rain. I don’t know why I bother even going to these things because I loath sorting through bins and bins of five year old broken crap all the while being hip checked by a sixty-something bargain hunter. I was however, looking for a new fleece hat for the Buggle.

“We have to go into the Cellar, all sale items are an additional 50% off and all clothing is 20% off!”

“Oh, good! Maybe we can find something good.”

Jill and I look through the bins of crapola, then the regular racks and find a red Columbia fleece hat. Not exactly what I’m looking for, but it’ll do.

I proceed to the counter to pay the cashier who is dressed as a floosie-pirate.

“Twenty-one even.”

“Huh? Isn’t all clothing 20% off?”

“Yeah, but hats are ‘accessories’ not clothing.”

“Eff, so you are telling me that the one thing I found in this whole place, I could have bought any day of the week for the same price?!”

“Yeah, I guess…”

That’s why it’s called “madness!”

He’s worthy every penny!
