A Confusion of Words

Rosalee Floral Chenille Bedspread - White - TW - Vermont Country Store

Seeing a post of chenille bedspreads on Facebook the other day brought back a memory from a long time ago.

I loved suits. I thought they were so neat and looked professional. I was working at the time and had several but thought I wanted one with a shorter jacket. (No belly bulge then.)

So I went to one of our most elegant stores in town, Pegues. As I was looking through the rack of suits, a sales person asked if she could help me.

"Yes, do you have an suits in the style of Chanel?"

The look I got from her made me think she was highly disturbed. I realized later that she thought I was nuts.

"No, we don't have anything in chenille."

I'm sure she thought I didn't know how to pronounce the type of bedspread she thought I was looking for.
