Just a few things I wanted to pass along today. Just observations.
First, I will never understand people who don't seem happy unless
they are telling me how unhappy they are. I am convinced they
are why God gave us texting.
J. Crew has taken some flak this week for introducing a new size
in their clothing. Size "000". That's like saying "XXXS".
Some are considering it "vanity sizing" run amok. Vanity
sizing is a marketing ploy whereby stores/brands label clothing
"smaller" than it's standard measure. A size 10 might be labeled
an 8, for example. I can't imagine anyone feeling good about
claiming to fit into a "000". That's like having a waist size the
circumference of an Oreo cookie.....which they can't eat.
My wife came in today and asked, "Did you hear me scream?"
I had not.
"That's because I didn't, and I almost stepped on a big snake!!!"
"Well where is it???"
"It crawled under the porch."
That's when "I " screamed...
And finally, I learned today that the estate of John Wayne and
Duke University are in a legal battle over the use of the word
"Duke". "Duke" as you know, was the actor's nickname. His
estate wants to use it to market bourbon and the University
has a problem with that.
It seems to me that some sort of compromise can be reached,
because, Lord knows, as an avid Blue Devils basketball fan,
those crazy ACC finishes can drive me to drink...
