Tomorrow it's rumored that the temperature will top 70 degrees. I've waited a long time for the feeling of sun on my face. I almost remember what sun on my skin feels like. It's been quite warm all week, but tomorrow promises to be a summer day. Of course, this mean no more corderoy pants and thermal shirts. Ahem... I guess this means summer clothing is needed.
Upstairs I pulled out a large bag of my summer clothing from the floor of my closet. Hey, did you think my kids invented bags in the closet? No, they learned from a master. Actually, that was the only bag on the floor of my closet, which made it quite easy to find. I pulled out a few t-shirts and some shorts. Shorts! My legs are the color of white eggshells. I'm very very pale. Many people are actually blinded by the gleam of my untanned skin. It is not a pretty sight.
Unfortunately, the shorts, they are too big. Oh, I'll wear them because I don't believe in ever getting new clothing until my stuff literally rots off my body, but I guess I knew this day was going to come. I have gone down at least one size, maybe two. My pants have gotten so baggy I think I could fit a friend in with me. But pants cover a multitude of sins that shorts do not. Big shorts show people parts of me that I'd like to pretend don't exist, like the tops of my thighs. They are weapons of mass destruction all by themselves, those thighs.
T-shirts, they'll just look big and baggy and what do I care? But the shorts, I believe I must think of replacing some of the shorts.
Most women in my situation would be thrilled to go and buy new clothing. Not me. I never buy clothes for myself. You know how you feel trying on bathing suits. That's how I feel trying on anything remotely like clothing, including coats. Makes me shiver just thinking about it. I am shopping adverse. I believe I will order online so I can pretend that flourescent lights do not exist. That will make me happy.
Or, I could eat all the girl scout cookies we picked up yesterday and then the shorts might fit again? That's not a great idea, right?
Instead I will garden and hopefully get the perennial beds cleaned up. Exercise in the sunshine. My goodness, spring has sprung. Stumble It! JBlog Me
