not be televised

In the past year I have purchased at least seven different shirts with blue and white horizontal stripes. I'm never aware of my duplication until I pull the new shirt out of the shopping bag and place it in my closet next to a row of nearly identical tops. I don't know what it is in my subconscious that's drawing me to the same shirt over and over. Maybe it's quarter-life-onset-obsessive-compulsive-disorder. Maybe it's due to the years of blue and white repression, since during my time at BYU I refused to wear anything that would make me appear to be a sports event attending zoobie. Or maybe, deep down inside, I've always dreamed of being a sailor. Living life on the sea, observing maritime law, and randomly breaking into song and dance (sailors do that, right?).


  1. I have the exact same problem. in fact, when I go shopping with my roommates they just started pulling stuff out of my arms. I LOVE LOVE LOVE navy + white stripes. but they make fun of me constantly. totally worth it.

    also, was only in provo for like 15 minutes... to drop off my dad at the byu father's and son's basketball camp. but I'ma be back asap. I'm thinking three weeks? and this time we're going to nail down official plans. I'm thinking dinner somewhere.

  2. i have the same problem with westerny shirts. apparently because i'm from az i've been brainwashed to think i'm a cowgirl.

  3. I'm glad I'm not alone in this.


Don't be shy.
