The Killing Fields

Bee thinks I need a new purse, so she drove to the mall yesterday and bought me a purse from H&M. I thought the H&M purse was ugly, but instead of saying so I just put the purse over my head like a feedbag and said "I'M EATING OATS OUT OF MY FEEDBAG." Bee didn't think this was funny, so I repeated it until she left the room. Today she returned the purse to H&M.

UPDATE! Google is no help at all.

It's quite possible that Bee heard you say that you were "meeting goats." The H&M people are goat herders, at least that's what the goats have said.

Try to Google "Khmer Rouge + goats + H&M"

Bee knows that I never meet goats when I mean to eat oats. I will occasionally cut throats, drain moats, sink boats, and even scribble notes, but never - NEVER - do I meet goats when I intend to eat oats. Oi, it is unthinkable. And from a feedbag? No. Such notions are incomprehensible.

I still feel bad.

Wrong. You don't feel bad. You feel good. Honestly, if you feel bad, it's probably about something else. Perhaps you need a vitamin pill.

Heh Esther, give Bee a break. She was just doing her best. That she's clearly a little lacking is surely a heavy enough cross to bear. Let her bear it in peace.

I might clear up the mystery for you if I had a clue as to what H&M is!

Apparently they have no clue either, since they are selling oat feedbags.

Clearly Google is in on on the deal that they would cover up the H&M/Khmer Rouge link.

Ah, today, I can do nothing but admire your perspicacity.

Today Google appologized for the cover-up and sent me the following information:

In Cambodia's long struggle to overcome its modern legacy of war, communist dictatorship and Khmer Rouge killing fields, followed by a messy democracy that has done little to raise living standards, the garment industry has stood out as something of a miracle.

The factories, mostly in or near Phnom Penh, the capital, make clothes for contractors to such giants as H&M, Gap, Nike and Columbia Sportswear.

H&M's announced profit figures for the third quarter jumped by 36%. Final quarter may take a hit if people start returning their stuff like you did.

Everyone knows we are in cahoots with Coach after our failed takeover of Dooney and Bourke
