The shoes were purchased in a distinct bout of retail therapy much required the week before the announcement was made about the second year Apprentice Printer position. I was weak and simply couldn’t resist.
The leather roller was purchased in celebration a week after I received the news that I had been offered the Apprentice Printer position.
I broke the shoes in over the past two weekends. I will break the roller in starting this Monday and it should serve me well during my year of printing here at Tamarind (because of course I said yes).
I feel quite spoiled but luck must be on my side right now as I stumbled upon a stray $20 outside the store yesterday. I’ll take it as a sign. A girl’s got to treat herself every once in a while….
(and yes Daryl, I kept the boxes!)
