if you’re a regular reader of my blog, or an occasional reader with an awesome memory, or if perhaps you happen to be my spammer/secret admirer that’s been flattering me lately with your attentions (it’s true love, completely reciprocal, and i DO want to see your uploaded body pictures), you might remember that i was obsessed with the PS1 Continental Wallet a while back. i was stymied by its hefty price tag, but still really wanted it/really needed a new wallet. i waited a couple of months for either of these problems to go away, and when they didn’t, i figured i had to come up with a new plan. so when in doubt, half-ass it! i bought the PS1 Wallet: the poor man’s Continental, the Joan Collins version of the Continental’s Liz Taylor…but still a PS1. so yay me!? oh but read on.
i just got it in the mail yesterday, and of course, half an ass is never as good as full ass. it only has ONE compartment. i knew this, it was plainly listed information for me to see and retain, ‘one compartment’ appeared under ‘details’ and also was shown in picture form for further visual aid, so i did KNOW it, i just for some reason didn’t BELIEVE that it really would turn up at my house with only one compartment. but it did, it proudly did, and was totally like, what are you gonna do about it. and i was unreasonably dumbfounded. intellectually i can reason to myself that there’s no reason to advertise your product to have only one compartment when it actually has several….i mean, it would be like buying a one bedroom house and upon moving in, finding out it actually has a spacious TWO bedrooms, and turning to high-five your husband in disbelief that you got away with scamming both your realtor AND the previous occupants and got two for the price of one. that’s just unrealistic, and probably rarely happens. so i can’t really complain to Jack and Lazaro (although would it have KILLED them to add even one extra pocket?)…they presented the information and i did what i chose with it. but i CAN complain to you guys. and i just want to say, i’m a little unsatisfied. and there’s a good reason why i just couldn’t believe the information right in front of me. for a wallet, having only one compartment is weird. your credit cards slide around, your change sloshes around, you can never find your subway token in there, and it’s kind of a pain. it LOOKS good. but doesn’t function nearly as well as i thought it would. although few things in my wardrobe do i suppose. so oh well, PS1, you’ll fit right in. welcome. and as for me and ‘anonymous’, as he is so coyly referring to himself, we’ll see. if he somehow steals my identity, well, the course of true love never did run smooth. if he finds and murders me, well, i shall only love thee better after death. romeo and juliet, antony and cleopatra, tristan and isolde, anonymous and i, sometimes great loves demand great sacrifices…..
