Meanwhile, somehow my new winter gloves got slashed. It started as a little tear over the middle knuckle on the right glove, which I promptly ignored, hoping it would "heal." Of course, it didn't and now it's spread to a fully mature gash across all four knuckles, and the stuffing is starting to come out. I thought about using duct tape, but I figured it'd be a little tacky, so I went to Target to buy a new pair.
Guess what. They don't sell gloves at Target any more. Nor do they sell them at K-Mart, Walmart, Kohls, or just about any other major store. Gloves are "out of season" now. Yes. With buckets of snow coming down every day (enough already with all the snow!) gloves, hats, and even coats are out of season. The best I can do is buy a pair of shorts or a swimming suit and wrap that around my hands.
Well, there's always duct tape.
