Over the weekend, I bought a surplice [1] top for Laurel. Blissfully ignorant of current fashion, I noticed Laurel was drawing them on some of her fashion drawings and spotted the top on a sale rack while looking for a cooler-season jacket to bridge the gap between track jacket and winter coat. Cutting off the tag before throwing the purchase in the hamper, I read the tag: "FG LS SURPLUS TOP". I am baffled by how someone could confuse homophones with such wildly different meanings.


1. A surplice bodice has two overlapping pieces at the bustline. Depending on where the overlap is sewn down and the bust of the wearer, the look can range from a modest v-neck to a deep plunge.

So are you suggesting that my whole military surplice store idea was stupid? D_mn. I feel like a fool!

Not in the least. Are fashions on sale camouflage print?
