Fair Trade.

The Selfish Seamstress makes me laugh with her pithy haiku. This one especially since so many people ask me to take up their trousers. Even Tim knows to take his pants to the local tailor…

But there is the occasional exception like the first-time-pregnant colleague who is desperate for her perfect-with-high-heels pants to be shortened so that she’ll at least have one pair of jeans that fit. Sobbing desperate.

Besides how could I say no to a Kim Crawford red and a crown pumpkin picked right off the vine. Totally fair trade.
