How to Save Money on Clothes

This blog post is rated R for language. If you don’t like that kinda thing, best move along now.

In case you couldn’t tell, I’m a bit of the office character. You know every office has to have (at least) one kinda geeky, out-there person. Well, for my office, that’s me.

My dislike for green vegetables is well-known, so when Coworker K stepped over to find me poking dubiously at the plastic container holding her spinach salad, she took it all in stride. “Yeah, I know, rabbit food.”

The microwave chose that moment to beep, and as I pulled my lunch* out of it I declared “Not-Rabbit food!”

“I bought a bikini this weekend,” she volunteered, picking up her salad. “So today I’m dieting.”

Coworker K walked off, and all I could do was blink.

Ladies and gentlemen– she spend MONEY on CLOTHES SHE CANNOT WEAR BECAUSE THEY DO NOT FIT HER.

Nuh uh, pumpkins. This is not how we do it. We buy clothes that fit, that flatter, and that make us feel good, for the body we have right now, not for the body we wish we had.

And fuck the designers and their ‘sizes’.

*For those of you who care, my lunch consisted of vaugely-steamed zucchini**, country-style pork rib, brown rice.
**How to vaugely steam zucchini for lunch: cut into matchsticks or rather thin slices. Pile atop rice in a microwave safe tupperware. Nukerwave the tupperware with the lid on.
