Perhaps after almost five years of blogging, it’s time to let you in on a secret. While my blog posts (being rather light in terms of subject matter) might lead you to believe otherwise, I am not an airhead. I read the morning paper, watch the news and listen to TedTalks. I follow world events – Syria, Iran (uranium stockpiling), the Kony matter, our F-35 jets fiasco, the U.S. Republican primaries, my own government’s right wing agenda, the ups and downs of the stock market & the world economy, various social and medical issues and on and on and on… However, I choose not to write about these things. It’s enough that I read, think and worry about them. My blog is reserved for lighter fare.
So, here’s yet another airhead post from an otherwise bright & informed individual – but one who would prefer you did not ask her for detailed explanations re: the above matters.
Had to buy a new bathing suit for my pool exercise class or risk literally coming apart at the seam – the rear one. Not a pleasant visual. Chlorine does quite a number on material.
I had success – in part. After the dreaded fitting room part of the process, I bought two bathing suits - one a size 10 and the other a SIZE 16!!! WTH??!! (Yes, I checked the tag, numerous times. If it weren’t for the size 10, I might have wept.)
I also needed some plain white and black 100% cotton t-shirts – impossible to find in the Women’s Dept. Only t-shirts with cotton AND spandex were offered. If I wanted to crush and flatten my upper torso, I’d buy Spanx. (No, I wouldn’t…not ever.) Headed to the Men’s Dept. Yes, I found 100% cotton t-shirts but Men’s Small went to my thighs. I was in a bit of a snit at this point, but had a “eureka” moment. Try the Boy’s Department!
Success. Bought two packs (one white, one black, three per pack) of Boys’ Extra Large t-shirts.
In summary - I wear anything from Boys’ X-L to Women’s size 16.
So, in answer to the question, “Does size matter?” Apparently not - and certainly not when it comes to clothing and my body.
Part-time airhead – over and out…
