What Not to Wear
No, it's not cabin-fever time. It's not even "I'm-sick-of-the-cold-and-snow" time yet either. Nope. It's officially the "I-hate-all-the-clothes-in-my-closet" time of year. sigh.
Every morning it's the same--I stand there all sleepy-eyed in front of the closet wondering what the heck I'm gonna wear today. The cat is pacing--she is waiting for her breakfast and wishes I would just hurry it up already. But I have this dilemma, you see:
I'm tired of that sweater or those pants. I don't like that shirt (toss it in the donate pile in the garage...) and I hate how this fits me. I love that shirt, but I think I wear it every week....do you think the people are work are noticing? What if I add a scarf--do you think that will spiff it up?
Those are too tight, these are too loose. This color is "blah" and that is too chilly for the office. Why did I buy that? And why did I wear it all those times? Do I look like a guy in this? Hey! This is all pilly and faded. Crap.
It goes on and on.
The clock ticks until I finally just grab something....anything...to put on so I'm not going in to work naked. Work is bad enough, we don't need to add naked people to the mix. Criminy.
I tell my tale of woe to my office buddy and she laughs....only because she hates her clothes too.
