I know I’ve mentioned Jamie the Very Worst Missionary before, but in case you forgot, or weren’t paying attention, allow me to make a more formal introduction.
Jamie is… awesome. She is sassy, smart, heart-wrenchingly honest, occasionally profane, and always relevant. Someday I hope to meet her in person. I know at least we agree about coffee and that’s a really good place to start.
She wrote a post a few weeks ago called “Consumed by Thoughts of Consumerism.” And I have been consumed by thoughts of that post ever since. Maybe because I was wearing one of my very favorite cheap Target T-shirts that just seem to fit so right and cost so little. (In case you’re wondering, I asked if I could share this. She said, quote, “Please feel free :)” I even got a smile emoji! So, feeling special, we will move on.)
I didn’t even have to try – I could always find just what I was looking for. Sure, sometimes I wouldn’t get it because I couldn’t afford it, but until recently, I’d never walked away from the perfect find because I wasn’t sure about the conditions of the factory it was made in, or the workers ages or wages.
