“I” – The REI Used Gear Sale

The REI garage sale. The mother lode of marked down hiking and back packing gear! The voice: “Attention REI Shoppers, if you have a ticket with “D” as in dog, come to the back of the store to get in to the used gear sale!”

Groans drift across the store…My ticket is “I” as in India….Argh! A group of about 30 of us gaze jealously at those chosen few who are sifting through tubs of marked down poles, socks and SPF 50 hats…the voice: “Attention REI Shoppers, if you have a ticket with “E” as in Echo, come to the back of the store to get in to the used gear sale!”

No! A married couple leaves the room of treasures with two bags of hiking boots! Argh! That pair on top looks like KEEN Targhee 2 – size 13! Argh! Must…slow…breathing…and…relax…

The voice:
“Attention REI Shoppers, if you have a ticket with “F” as in Foxtrot, come to the back of the store to get in to the used gear sale!” Argh!

“I”
