What might be humor will not be to another. I find humor in many places and one of these is in the “knockoffs” of certain clothing companies. Check out the “Fakes” page for some quick smiles.
It is quite amazing what you can find at your local Goodwill store and sometimes it is right in front of you. In this case, it confronted me before I was able to walk through the front door. Here is a bit of humor that you probably wouldn’t expect to find parked in the front of your favorite thrift store.
My aunt is quite a well known published author of many topics but I believe she outdid herself with the following poem. If you consider yourself a Goodwill shopper, see if it doesn’t put a grin on your face as well.
I opened my closet and what should I see…
a gaggle of strangers are staring at me.
Armani and Gucci with silk shirts and ties
are hanging right there before my startled eyes!
Ralph Lauren and Prada and Calvin Klein suits,
plus Christian Dior and some Jimmy Choo boots.
I don’t recall shopping on Fifth Avenue or Barney’s
in New York, so I have no clue.
Has my memory left me? Do you think I’m ill?
Not really my friend…
I’ve discovered Goodwill !
