Goodbye, white tee shirt. It was fun while it lasted

What was I thinking when I bought a white James Perse tee shirt? I know I can't keep my whites white for more than 3.2 nanoseconds. Amazingly, I did keep you white. If only I hadn't shrunk you in the wash cycle, we might still be together.

Could I possibly hang on to you in case I lose enough weight that you feel comfortable again? Absolutely. Do I really want to take up space in my closet with something that doesn't feel fabulous on the body I have right now? Not so much.

So thank you, white tee shirt. We had a good run. Maybe your next human can keep you white and enjoy you, and treat you more kindly than I did.

    This is why I fear investing much in white tees. So much can go wrong.

    Alas, I learned years ago to only buy JP tees on deep discount and baby them, but still they have all ended up being sleep tees after a certain amount of wear.

    White tees, jeans, etc. seem to never last in my closet.  Dirt attacks them.  I do like JP but not the price!

    Why is it that the more I like something, the greater the probability it will be ruined in the laundry??? A moment of silence for your tee shirt companion.

    Savor those short and sweet memories.
