What do these four photos have in common?
If you answered me holding DIY materials while doing projects…you would be correct.
If you also answered those nasty blue sweatpants…DING DING DING DING! You are a talking fox. No really…you are foxy 🙂
Those blue sweatpants are my go-to for cold weather projects…and I am officially saying goodbye to these dear old friends.
And now for a little eulogy….
Bluey S. Weatpants was a good friend of mine. We met a little over 14 years ago…in the winter of 1999….the year I graduated high school….in the back room of Abercrombie & Fitch where I spent a season folding clothes and gazed dreamily at oversized black and white photos of half naked men. It was an exciting time for us…we celebrated sliver-of-midriff-day together, singing Summer Girls by LFO, and did daily lunges. We loved going everywhere together. With Bluey I always felt comfortable. And I knew he always had my back…side. And we had common interests….micro paper tees, vintage pumas, and keeping our legs long and lean.
I am sorry to have to say goodbye to dear ole Bluey….but he suffered from bleach poisoning, spotted thigh, and finally bit the bullet when he came apart at the seams at his most vulnerable spot. But he was dedicated to DIY up till the very end…a true partner in gettin-er-done….and never failed me (until he exposed my rear end to a room full of people…yeah…that happened).
Goodbye sweet friend (or should I say sweat friend?). I will never forget you. Rest in pieces. (cue bagpipes)
