Good People, Swell Dresses

Just when I am ready to give up on society (because, let's face it, most people are stupid and mean), people surprise me.

The email I received about putting on a prom for Katrina Kids really touched me. I had my few dresses, but thought I could do more. So I passed it along to some of the staff at FatCatLawFirm. Note, while we are probably on the higher end of the salary scale, its not like we are attorneys. None of us has full time nannies or housekeepers or truly extravagant automobiles. But clearly, we do have the giving gene.

Most people I spoke with told me how much they loved their soon-to-be-discarded items. They were associated with special memories or were purchased for an amount that seemed overwhelming at the time. Amortized over the years they were kept in the back closet, they still were a sizable investment. But still, when learning of the plans of Miracles, they brought them in the next day. Like me, they wanted to do something that would mean a lot, and I think they've achieved that.

I am impressed, humbled, and proud of my co-workers.

And the wee MonkeyGurl likes 'em too.

Miss K - I did not go last nite, I also was not feeling well! How *ironic* CAP decided to go.

Chase - I did indeed see you were first. How *ironic* this was probably only time IN YOUR LIFE you were speechless!

Wow. If I actually knew anyone at MegaFirm well enough to e-mail them, I would do so. I'm glad your peeps over in the C-City are good humans.

I stalk Chase. He's an offshoot from stalking you, CAP. I'm an all-purpose stalker. :)
