Not everything on El Paso Street scares me. After all, it has some great shopping…and some rather questionable shopping, but that makes it all the more entertaining. I love asking myself, “Where would you wear something like that? Better yet, who the hell would wear that?”
I was in a shoe store and asked those very questions. The answer? “Las que bailan en los tables.” Oh. I probably shouldn’t be shopping for work clothes there, should I? But, I really like my new $4.99 low-cut black shirt! I wore it today, in fact.
I miss being able to shop at the Ueta, dammit. I would need a passport now to buy my junk and walk across to Mexico and then back to the US to avoid sales tax.
And, even I must admit that pawn shop is pretty normal as long as you don’t look at the skulls, mummies, ventriloquist dummies, full skeletons….Right! Focus on the bright colors and shiny things.
