It would appear my desire for journaling outfits, goes back farther than even I remembered. At a recent reunion, a friend from high school reminded me that during math class, there was a guy in our class, (who shall remain nameless) who (much to my amusement) only wore 3 shirts. The concept of someone only having 3 shirts, baffled me, so I wrote which shirt he wore to class, Everyday…for the entire school year. In the back of my notebook. She said that was one of her fondest memories of me and that class.
Mon – rugby
Tue – light blue
Wed – short sleeve yellow
Thur – light blue
Fri – light blue
Yes, there were days when the same shirt was worn 2 days in a row. Now, his sister had a plethora of clothes…cute clothes, and the family lived in a lovely home, with 2 cars, and went on nice vacations. So, please don’t think I’m a mean, cruel person who is poking fun at those less fortunate than ourselves…it wasn’t (or at least didn’t appear to be) for lack of funds that he only wore 3 shirts. I do believe he just didn’t care.
You know what? Good for him…who cares?! Of course, at the time I did, but that was back in the 80′s…now, it doesn’t matter. I still find it amusing, and even now he may still only wear 3 shirts (though my sense is his wife may have put a stop to that), and funny enough, there are indeed days when I may wear 3 shirts. This is what makes the world go round…and you can bet your bottom dollar, that on those days that I choose to wear 3 shirts, they will be noted in my fashion journal, so they’re not seen by the same people, at least for a reasonable period of time.
