Make a way outta no way

Insane. That is all I can say about yesterday’s sale at Old Navy. It was completely nuts at both of the branches my sister and I traveled to.  Let me explain.

We had started out early because my sister had to say goodbye to one of her friends that was going back to their boarding school (my sister had graduated two years ago). She had invited me to come along. At first we had planned on going really early when the mall first opens. That was a no go we didn’t get there until after one. You should have seen the inside of the stores. The first one, at Jamaica center, had a line wrapped around the store and reaching nearly out of the door, and everyone had about 10 pairs of jeans in their hands ready to buy. We said hell no and went to the store in Green Acres Mall. The exact same problem awaited us there. No point in not looking was what I was thinking since we traveled a long bus ride to reach there anyway.

Sister and I start searching through all the jeans. First off, the place was a mess.. There were jeans thrown in piles on the floor, nothing was in there proper place and the only sizes they had left were 0, 18, and 22. I knew that was going to happen so I was discouraged from the start. Gabrielle found a pair for my younger sister, Rachel, and I went on looking for myself. No such luck. I spent forever looking while my sister slowly crawled through the line. I found a couple of pairs that I found kind of cute but what I really wanted where a pair of stonewashed looking skinny jeans. I looked in parts I thought it would be and parts I thought no one would ever look. Still no skinny jeans. So I went back to look for a pair of regular jeans and there they were. My perfect pair waiting for me on a rack that the saleswoman had started refolding. I was so happy. So any way I’ve been wearing them for the past two days straight and I don’t plan on switching anytime soon. I worked too damn hard looking for these jeans.
