Hey, That’s My Shirt!

Like most – if not all – of you, I buy clothes in stores. Off the rack. (I know! How about it! We probably go to the same places, even.) And that means it’s possible, if not likely, that other people are walking around in the same clothes as you.

Last week I realized that I hadn’t seen anyone wearing something I owned in a long time… and wondered why that was. That made me feel kinda good, to be honest. But then something funny happened: the very next day I saw a guy on the train who was wearing a sweater I own. It was strange but my first thought was, “Say – that’s a nice sweater!”

Funnier? Two days later I saw another guy wearing that same sweater! This time I was with The Wife and mentioned it to her. Her reply? “Why can’t you wonder why there isn’t a million dollars under our mattress?”

I’ve been wondering that lately, as a result.

Can you wonder why my house is a wreck too? Thanks.

What is this then?
