Okay, it is supposedly snowing in Seoul, and my supply of long-sleeved shirts is at a bare minimum. So this afternoon I swung by the PX at Camp Foster to see if they had anything in stock - and I hit the jackpot! I found five long-sleeved shirts on sale (spring clearance) for prices ranging from five to nine dollars each. I added two short-sleeved shirts to that pile, some postcards, a book, and a card and small gift for Valerie's birthday - and still spent less than a hundred dollar bill!
Tonight I went back to the PX for some disposable razors for the trip. After locating what I wanted, I found myself traversing the children's and young adult's book aisle. The first "must have" that I encountered was a soon-to-be classic entitled Night of the Living Trekkies. I plan to read it on the plane. The second book was a hardcover reading primer called Dick and Jane and Vampires! Now don't even try to tell me that one won't become a best seller!
New clothes and new books! Life is sweet!
