My "North Minneapolis Gloves"
About a week ago, I found out I'm not the only one who uses this trick. See, I have a really beat up pair...
...of gloves that should have been thrown away a long time ago except, well, the thing is...I just don't throw away gloves. Even mismatched gloves get tossed in a "glove box" for those really filthy jobs which also have to be performed in cold weather. And then when you lose or misplalce your good gloves...well, time to forage around in the glove box.
But sometimes I have other reasons for wearing my beat up gloves, besides hard and filthy work. A pair of gloves like those pictured above says: I don't have any money. I'm not worth robbing.
Last week, a friend of mine said she uses the same trick, only in her case it's a "North Minneapolis coat."
Now, you might be wondering why I'm sharing my trick on the internet. Well, as one harsh critic of my blog put it so well, "Thank God for the digital divide, huh?"
