Let’s Have A Chat

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. 


like to talk about clothes

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.

The End.
