I had this dress pressed for Easter but I was so stuffed up with allergies that Sunday and didnt go out at all. I own like a little more than 100 dresses, those are the ones that currently hung and folded in my closet. And a dozen more is kept in a box marked ‘waiting to be altered’. Usually as I chopped or hemmed or altered one dress, I thrifted another one that needs to be fixed. More than 100 dresses! I was thinking I could wear one for each day in summer. I wonder how much is too much? Oh Goodwill, why cant I quit you?
In order to curb my primitive thirst for acquisition,
could you please hike up your pricing.

Colin Stuart/Victoria Secret heels – $3.99
Vintage Oscar de la Renta dress – $7.99
BCBG cardigan – $3.59

That is one mail that will never be signed or sealed or delivered. I’ll leave you with more undelivered mail by Rhina P. Espaillat from Playing at Stillness.
Your father and I wish to commend you
on the wisdom of your choices
and the flawless conduct of your life
Where is the full-length manuscript
you promised us? Your check is waiting
The presses are ready
and the bookstores are clamoring for delivery
This convention is tedious
beyond belief: the hotel is swarming
with disgustingly overexposed women
far too young to have dignity
or any minds at all
The results of your blood tests reveal
that your problem stems from
a diet dangerously low
in pizza and chocolate
You were right about everything
and I was an idiot not to listen
