Owning Up

OK, I'm admitting it here. I have more clothes than Monica. It's not even like it was close. I had more to start with, and I got rid of fewer. Same's true of shoes.

There. I feel better.

I admit I laughed out loud to that one. Especially when you got to the shoes part. I have long called Andy Imelda. His collection beats out mine. Forget comic books, now I know the truth about why you guys have been friends for so long!

That's lie...my shoes are bigger than yours. Remeber, I only get one closet to your two.

Come on, Bram... How many collarless shirts and Doc Martins can one man actually own???

Sorry... that was me (Ed). My nick name is anonymous, though.

I strongly recommend that you move into a house with a basement and with at least three spare rooms with closets..then you'll only have to have two yard sales a year to rid yourself of the excess clothes...and you'll her yourself saying cool phrases like..."Wow I did't wear this all season"...and "Crap, I already had one/two/three in that color/size/pattern...."

Yeah, but I have waaaaaaaaaaay more coats that Bram.

...and table linens? fuggeddabout it! The girl who can't pass a Crate+Barrel store without picking up another tablecloth packed 4 boxes of stuff, using only cloth napkins for padding.

Also: is it admitting defeat to label a box "misc" or "nic-nacks?"

Liz, we shall not speak of the comic books. :)

Liz said...

If you label a box full of comic books "Trash" will they go away? {that's not to say there aren't some worth keeping I guess}

Bram said...

Well, it might be better to label the box "Retirement Fund" unless you just feel like throwing out vast sums of wealth.

And I have perfectly logical reasons for all the clothes and shoes. It's just that when I express them, they come out sounding more like excuses.

what can you say about someone who apparently buys shoes 2 pair at a time, so he has a hot spare ready the instant the first pair wears out?

not to mention keeping the spare(s) in cold storage in Maryland (sort of off-site storage, in case there is a fire or other natural disaster which might adversely affect the original pair)
