Shopping Spree at Nordstrom’s

My wife recently came into possession of a $200 gift card for Nordstrom’s. At first I was happy as a pig farmer with new hip waders, thinking of all the clothes we could get with that wad of dough. Then we actually went to Nordstrom’s.

Good Goobly Goop! A tie for $135? A sweater for $200? For that much I want my clothes to be self-cleaning and to adjust themselves as I get older and fatter. Does anybody ever really shop there? I can’t imagine paying those prices. For the cost of one of their off-the-rack suits I can fly to Bangkok and get one custom tailored in a day.

I am still in shock.
