This is not a meme, but I suppose it could become one.
I bought unmentionables this week. Six pairs (I guess they're pairs because they have two legways). I'm sure you were just dying to hear about my unmentionables. Admit it.
Actually, I mention my unmentionables because the topic does tend to reveal some of my quirkiness.
For one thing, I buy six pairs at a time. Basically, it's out with the old and in with the new. Mind you, it was well past time to out the old. Shoulda done it months ago ... unless I wanted to join the clergy and be as holey as possible.
I will possibly hang onto a pair or two of the less-holey specimens in case of a laundry emergency, but for the most part I'm done wif em.
I do the same with socks: buy six pair and discard most of the rest. It's a quirk. I suppose I feel certain sense of orderliness by doing it this way ... or something akin to orderliness, perhaps. I dunno, it just seems right.
But that's not all. I carefully rotate said garments. Actually, that's not true. I don't do it all that carefully (I'm not that obsessive doncha know?), but if x pair come back from the wash while y pair are still in the drawer, I usually make sure to pick up the y pair and place the x pair underneath. That way, they'll be likely to wear at something approximating the same rate.
Again, I'm not sure what this says about me, and I almost cringe to ponder what dear readers might be thinking right now. But I simply am driven to wonder and ask if anyone else is possessed by a similar habit. You could comment or better still run with the idea in your very own up and personal blog space. Let me know one way or t'other. Will ya?
