Readers, there has been something I have wanted to discuss with you for awhile, but I just haven’t.
Because today seemed like a very good day to talk about such things.
More specifically, I would like to talk about the amount of clothing I have versus the amount of clothing my husband and children have.
What makes this even MORE obnoxious is that I seem to be the only person in the house who only wears one outfit per day.
And on and on and on.
Times 4 children.
Plus one dad that has to come home and change out of his “work clothes”.
Basically, I always have massive amounts of laundry.
But we’re not talking about the laundry today.
(Though if we were, I would probably tell you that I hate it…. but we’re not, so I’ll keep that little nugget of information to myself. YOU’RE WELCOME READERS.)
I want to talk about why I have so few clothes.
You see, I purchase clothing based on whether or not I can wear that particular item on its own, without any clothing “helpers.”
What do I mean by this and what is a clothing helper?
You see, when I get dressed in the morning I like to put on a shirt.
A (singular) shirt.
And this (singular) shirt must: have sleeves, cover my bosom, cover my stomach, and cover my back.
In fact, I do a tricky little test with my shirts…
And this tricky little test weeds out a lot of potential shirts, because, well, there’s just some things that should remain covered up…. especially in public.
Granted, the toes thing is more for skirts, BUT STILL: TOTALLY APPLICABLE.
At any rate, I like for the shirt to give me the right amount of coverage.
And I don’t want to wear layers, because it’s hot and muggy where I live, and I feel like I should be able to put on a shirt and call it a day, thankyouverymuch.
Which is why everyone has way more clothes than me.
