In two weeks, it will be the 2-year anniversary of when I dropped 65 pounds. Since I’ve maintained that loss all this time, today, I decided to it was time to go through all my shirts, keeping the mediums and the “small” larges – and making a pile of the “large” larges and extra-larges. Most of what I own falls into that latter size set – since that’s the shirt size I needed pretty much from the ’90′s through 2006. Why do this? Well, it creates a lot more free space in my dresser and closet. Besides, it’s like seven degrees out today…a great day for indoor overdue chores.
The game plan is to take that pile of shirts that are too big and give-away the ones in good condition and toss the ones that are pretty much past their prime. And, this includes some of my older Yankees T-shirts.
Is it just me, or, is it hard to throw out Yankees shirts – no matter how aged, ratty, faded or out-of-size they may be? There’s just something, at least me, about Yankee fan gear where it just doesn’t seem right to let it hit the trash. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that Yankees T-shirts are right up there with the American Flag or something. But, I dunno…I almost feel like me, we, us…you know, Yankees fans…should hang on to these puppies even if they no longer serve the attire purpose they were meant to fill.
Then again, I once owned a Rolling Stones T-shirt for something close to 16 years…so, maybe this whole thing is just the pack-rat in me?
