Yes! This is such a thing!

I just got to go to the Seattle Goodwill for 2 hours by myself. It’s massive and amazing. I had a great time and right away wanted to show my husband all the stuff I got.

“I found tap shoes for Tzivia!!! And a lunchbox to decorate, plus containers for inside! And a summer dress for her with strawberries all over it!”

And he was like, “Wait, what’d you get for yourself?”

And I was like, “Oh, I don’t need anything.”

Meanwhile, none of my clothes fit, and the chair I sit in to eat/write is literally duct-taped together.
