$1 Thursday: Red floral dress

Source: Thursday sale day Goodwill
Cost to me: $1
Time: 45 minutes to shorten the skirt and sleeves, bring in the sides, remove the shoulder pads, and change the neckline.  Another 15 minutes to strut around my apartment going from mirror to mirror admiring myself, thinking about how the boots and belt make any dress work.

I wore this latest new dress to a birthday party on Friday night.  I usually don’t wear glasses when going out and here’s why I did this time: I made chili for a chili cookoff competition party the next day (I didn’t win) and I washed my hands four times after cutting the onions and jalapenos.  45 minutes later I reached into my eye to take out a contact for rinsing and learned with fiery certainty that four times is not enough washing after handling peppers before touching one’s eyeball.  Not enough times.
