OK, I just have to know: am I the only one who has categories of underwear in her underwear drawer?
For example: I have the "holy-crap-I’ll never-wear-these-unless-I’m-really-trying-to-be-sexy-and-even-then-only-for-a-minute-because-they-are-so-uncomfortable" underwear, which take up a small corner of the drawer.
Then I have the "I can actually wear these every day" comfy cotton underwear, which encompass the large majority of the drawer.
Then I have the "someday-when-I-lose-20-pounds-these-will-fit-comfortably-again” underwear. (I only have 2 pair of those, but I just can’t give them up.)
And lastly, I have the corner of shame in my drawer, the corner where all the old, holey “just in case I haven’t done laundry in 3 weeks” underwear go to nest. I know I should just give them up, but I just can’t get myself to get rid of them. It’s like this: although I haven’t been a girl scout in many years, the girl scout motto (“be prepared”) has really stuck with me…and I just can’t let go of those old holey underwear.
Recently, after a particularly long hiatus from doing laundry, I was forced to wear one of those old pairs. The elastic was completely worn out, the holes were getting larger and larger, and the poor undies barely made it through the day.
So what did I do? Well, finally, I had no choice. I bought more underwear. Like 20 pairs from Target.
So do you think I can get rid of the old holey ones now? Hmm…I’m just not sure yet…
I’ll have to think about it.
