I work retail, and after I was off, I made a quick trip to the mall (where the parking lot gods smiled on me). I was dressed casually, jeans, Old Navy Polo, fleece jacket, tennis shoes, I was using my Denim Baggy PM and these two younger girls (I'm 33, maybe in their mid to late 20's) were talking about "I could never spend $1000 on a purse." "OMG, that is a mortgage payment!" And I turned around and said, "I'm worth it. Merry Christmas."
