The pool is beckoning. The beach is too. I have a friend who's been bugging me to go to both. I have another friend who wants me to go shopping with her. For, like, clothes and stuff.
I seemed to have missed out on that fashion gene. Here's what is in my closet: old T shirts and yoga pants from Target. Those shirts and pants were great. I knew exactly where to find them in my local store. Didn't even have to try them on: I walked in, grabbed a shopping cart, wheeled back to the workout section and got my clothes. Blam.
Then some fool decided to change the material and sizing. Suddenly I was sporting the dreaded "camel toe" from the new Target pants, and the shirts weren't comfortable anymore. I realized that I was cut off from my clothing source.
Since then I haven't found a new place to shop. And my supply of clothes is dwindling. I'm really quite worried - those shirts are developing holes, and the colors are getting a bit funky, and I know I have a reputation: Oh, look, here comes that woman in the old Target clothes.
That means that I really, really, really have to go and do clothes chopping. Which means: going out, and selecting clothes , and trying them on. I have no idea what size I even wear anymore. I was an S in Target, but what does that mean? Does Macy's carry a Target S? No.
To the girlfriend who offered to take me shopping - thank you! You are the sweetest person ever! And I am so sorry that I cancelled the shopping date, for this lame excuse: I have to set up for my daughter's birthdayy party. Her reply was, "OK, I'll let you off the hook this time, but - WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR TO THE PARTY?"
