I listed about fifteen dresses over at Ebay and have sold eight of them and the other seven, auctions ends tomorrow. So much for purging my closet, I hauled eight dresses from Goodwill over the past few days. How did I manage to get eight dresses? One, the Calvin Klein dress has a broken zipper, one the Just Taylor dress is two sizes larger, and one is a black Tommy Hilfiger maxi dress that nobody wants because when I came back the following day, the dress was still there. So you see, I am ‘saving’ those dresses. As I pat myself on the back, my boyfriend reckons I am like a squirrel, hoarding.
I am reminded of Timothy Steele’s poem, The Library:
Winding, as though along a corkscrew’s thread,
A squirrel has circled down a sycamore.
The frail must, in fair times, collect and store,
And so, amid swirled papery debris,
The squirrel creeps, nosing round, compelled to hoard
By instinct, habit, and necessity.
