It Was Mint To Be

A couple weeks ago at work my boss told Mansi and I that there was a big sale going on at Gap. (What else are you supposed to talk about during work hours?) Mansi, being a true friend and understanding my love for mint jeans, came across a pair of mint chinos in longs. They were a little different than the Gap jeans I used to have, but I was really excited about the prospect of them. They were 20-ish dollars and, if I spent more than $50 I got free shipping. So, of course I had to do that. As luck would have it, as I was rifling through the other sales items I got a notice telling me the pants had been removed from my basket because it was sold out. What?! That wasn’t the turn you were expecting the story to take, huh?

Upset, I decided to take matter into my own tentacles: I bought Oxi-Clean MAX to attempt yet again to get the stains removed from my sweet, faithful, old jeans. (P.S. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s the story.) The powers of the Oxi-Clean weren’t strong enough to remove the stains, but at least fade them to a level that I felt comfortable wearing them again. So, that’s why we’re all blessed with seeing the resurrection of the mint jeans today. Oh, and Mansi, again being the friend she is, assured me you couldn’t see the dabbles of pink throughout them (so don’t stare at the picture hard enough to look for them).
