It looks like this.
You can’t see the other two thirds of it.
I just counted. 61 pairs of shoes. 109 shirts on hangers. 48 pairs of pants or shorts folded on the top shelves. 17 jackets. 7 sweaters. 16 belts. 29 neckties. Workout clothes. Casual clothes. Dating clothes. Dressy clothes. Ski clothes. Hiking clothes. Swimwear.
It’s time I admit that I have a clothes-buying problem. And I blame Home Depot for making me finally have to face it.
After all, they’re the ones who sponsored Babble Voices and asked us to write funny blog posts about our storage areas and our closets and all the other parts of our lives and homes that we all wish we could avoid.
And there’s a dang good reason I’ve wanted to avoid it.
There’s nothing manly about that closet.
I’m the only one who uses that closet.
And I suddenly feel shame and guilt for all the naked people running around who can’t afford clothes at all.
I guess I’ll load up half of it and take it to the Salvation Army. Or better yet, I’ll keep it all in a big garbage bag in the back of my car and give it to just one homeless naked man. It’ll be an instant, awesome, eclectic wardrobe.
Or even better yet, I’m going to run to The Home Depot with that gift card they sent me and buy some nifty difty storage containers so that I can hoard even more new clothes!
Yeah, that’s what I’ll do. Forget the homeless naked people.
Thanks Home Depot.
