A public service announcement worth noting…

I  like clever people and I like smart marketing, so when I ran across both on Facebook I thought it was worth noting.

This comes from the Facebook page of Nate, a close friend of my son Noah.  Nate is a soldier in the U.S. Army (stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina) and is a great kid from a great family.

A public service announcement from Nate:

The Buckle is a trap.

I went there to buy one pair of jeans and this hot little number rolls up on me.  Not a big deal you might think.

I end up buying 3 pairs of jeans, 3 shirts, a necklace, and a watch. I ALREADY HAVE A F**KING WATCH!

I equate it to the same principle as you shouldn’t go grocery shopping when you’re hungry or you’ll end up buying way too much.  Don’t go to The Buckle when you’re a single soldier that’s around dudes all day long every day or you’ll get sucked into buying a ton of clothes that look “just amazing” on you.

This is a public service announcement.

On the plus side I’ll be in North Dakota again in 4 days with quite the wardrobe.

Well-put Nate and well-played Buckle.  You make a great point Nate and in the process you gave me a good laugh.  We’ll be watching for your homecoming – you’ll be easy to spot – the guy coming off the plane looking amazing in clothes from The Buckle. ;-)

Day one thousand and eighty-six of the new forty – obla di obla da

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
