There are some things in life I will never understand

Including the cost of a bed skirt. Seriously. It's this little bit of fabric that goes around the bottom of your bed. Nobody really wants one. Nobody even really knows why they need one, except maybe to hide all that junk under the bed. (Lord knows that's why I need one.) And yet, everyone wants to charge me upwards of $30 for what looks suspiciously to me like about a yard and a half of cheap cotton.

AND they only have them in-stock in chalky green or cat-food beige.

My life is very, very hard.
