So…Kohl’s had a sale. 25% off beach towels! I had $25 Kohl’s Cash so I bought 3. Three is my favorite number anyway. This brought their original price tag of $11.99 down to $8.99 apiece. My grand total after all discounts was $2.07 or thereabouts. My Kohls credit card has about a $0.67 credit on it so we’re talking like a dollar and some change for all 3. Keep in mind you have to pull up and drive off since Kohl’s isn’t quite open yet.
The toll of being in quarantine has been difficult mentally and emotionally for me as of late. Some days purely exhausting. I try to hide it. Mask it. (Pun intended) Whatever you want to call it.
But then the Kohl’s clerk arrives at my driver side window which helped shift my thoughts for a fleeting second. It was when she called me Lisa that I began to wonder.
My entire life I’ve been mistakenly called Lisa. For the first time, I just sat back and wondered how different my life would’ve been had I been named Lisa. What would she have been like? What would she have looked like? Better yet, what would she have done differently with her life?
All this from ordering 3 beach towels. Perhaps I should hold off on the scheduled grocery shopping trip this week…
