|A few of your favorite things, in the ragbag
||[Jan. 23rd, 2014|08:27 am]
For something that is likely to eventually wear out (such as socks, T-shirts, etc.), and is your favorite, do you:
Wear it more often! It's your favorite after all.
Save it for special occasions! It's your favorite, after all.
Institute a strict FIFO system so that everything gets equal wear.
Some other kind of rotation you will explain in comments.
Do not have favorite T-shirts/sweaters/etc. so this does not come up.
Any system you have is so completely haphazard and subconscious that you would be hard-pressed to describe it here.
Other, specified in comments.
(I have just this week completely worn out not one but two favorite garments--to the point where there is no point to donating them to any charity, as they would do no one more good than they have already done me--so I am thinking about these things at the moment.)
I don't have a system, but I do wear my favorite hot-weather shirt very rarely, because it is cursed.
Every single time I wear it, something unusual and stain-producing happens. The first few times, it was me being clumsy, so I vowed never to eat, clean, or cook while wearing it. The next time I put it on after taking this vow, I was crossing a crosswalk, which was full of a great many people, and a small child going in the opposite direction smeared my torso from the bust down with chocolate ice cream, a thing which has never happened to me before or since. The time after that, a bird, from midair, was not housebroken.
I'd like to wear it more often. It fits very well, and the design on it is amazing, and it was the shirt my department in college put out my senior year and has all sorts of good memories associated. But the thing is cursed and that's all there is to it.
My bird curse has not been active for years but seemed to be tied to my person rather than a particular garment.
