of vanities, all is vanity. I was in an extremely chic and expensive store because I had to take one of the boys to the bathroom and we were passing by it at the time of The Announcement. I braved the slight sneer on the face of the clerk (how did she know I wasn't going to buy something afterwards? Maybe it was my overalls and ratty sneakers that gave me away.) and we were curtly directed to the back of the store. While I waited for my boy I became aware of this ghostly crew, stripped and awaiting re-fitting for the next round of seasonal ephemera. Kind of restored my perspective in some wierd way. I called out a serene "Thank You!" to the clerk as we left.
