I bought some black cords a while ago that I totally love. They make my bum look really cute, which is important, and they were expensive. I had to get rid of them the other day though. I think they're haunted. They had a smell in them that would not go away no matter what I did. I tried washing them with extra laundry soap, I used liquid fabric softener and a dryer sheet, and I sprayed them with perfume. It made no difference, because there is an evil, musty spirit living in my cords and it WASTED MY MONEY!!!
