What kind of
The shirts were pale colored, light blue and white, peach and white, pale pink and white. With a breast pocket. And a row of four buttons at the neck.
And horizontal stripes.
Now admittedly, I stopped shopping in the plus section quite a while ago, but I still view horizontal stripes as clothing only for stick women who are pretending they have breasts and prisoners.
I made a face. I loved the style of the shirt. And I adore that pale teal color. And I've always liked that semi-tye-die patterning... also, it was on sale. $2.99.
What was the worst that could happen?
I snatched it off the rack and tossed it in my cart. I was already trying on a couple pairs of shorts. (Jean shorts, I'd grabbed a 6, and 8 and a 10. I've been having trouble with shorts recently... and some bright colorful cotton shorts in small and medium.)
I ended up trying it on without actually looking too carefully at it. I made sure it fit, and then took it off again.
This morning, I decided to wear it. I slid it over my head and then turned to the mirror, smoothing out the wrinkles.
One of the problems I've recently been having (with me and the mirror) is that I feel like my chest has shrunk enormously while the fat layer just below my ribs has... well, NOT.
Not according to this shirt. Wow.
Just seriously. I'm not being able to get over looking at myself.
I look like a brick house.
I think I'll be headed back to the K-mart this weekend and pick up several more of these tees in the other available colors.
Me and some friends are going to be doing a Wii Challenge this week, starting the 13th and running until the 19th. For starters, we'll be just doing 4 sessions during that week, of at least 15 minutes, and posting our high scores to each other.
Sounds like fun, I'll keep you posted on how we're doing...
