Today's Agenda: go to Montparnasse to shop for a knit hat, wallet, and an extra pair of black gloves for my other jacket, so I wouldn't forget them like I did yesterday. There is an H&M at Montparnasse, and an Etam that specializes in accessories, plus a Mango, and it's all close to line 6 on the Metro, which I can catch a block from home. Sounds simple, right?
OK, so I get to Montparnasse and what happens?
I lose one of the nice leather gloves I have in my pocket.
The second time this has happened--these Isotoners were purchased to replace the ones of which I lost 1/2 the pair back in Wisconsin. I walked up and down the route I took a few times, and went in every store I had been in to ask, and searched the floors frantically.
No more nice gloves for me. From now on, only cheap will do because I am just going to lose them anyway. Although, I never seem to lose the cheap ones, just the expensive ones.
Maybe I should make a part of my Adult Garanimals line a group of those little glove-to-coat clippies like I had when I was 5 for people like me. I just have to figure out how to make them not atrociously ugly.
But then, when I am a billionaire due to the amazing success of my Garanimals/Clippies lines, I can buy truckloads of gloves and feel free to lose as many as I want.
Even the nice leather ones.
I really loved those gloves.
***Update: I bought a pair of inexpensive black wool gloves to tide me over.
Last pair of black--I grabbed them, paid and left.
And wouldn't you know.
They have a hole in them.
Tried to get to the other H&M at Forum Les Halles before Knots, and missed the closing by 10 minutes.
So now I have to go out again tomorrow to exchange the holey gloves at another store.
