cloned undergarments.


as a follow-up to my perpetual mishaps, let me list what i've found recently:

- one old friend, on 13th street.
- i'm smitten, whose lovely pins i purchased a year ago in chicago, and whose work i've been trying to locate since.
- one pair of cloned underwear.

ah, but let me explain that last one.

sometime last year i bought a three-pack of underwear with a gift card at common corporate clothing store X. all three had the same pattern but one was red, one was green, and one was blue. this morning i opened my dresser drawer and pulled out the blue pair. imagine my asonishment when an identical blue pair was revealed under the ones i had already pulled out. i stared at both pairs, one in each hand. i glanced around the rest of the room to ascertain whether colors appeared normal. they did.

now, there are three possiblities for this, and only one seems plausible. either these underwears are magically color-changing, or one pair (using my missing sock, of course) cloned itself, or i picked up someone else's identical underwear at the laundromat. both pairs are a size small.

but here's the real question: how long have i had two pairs? have i been wearing someone else's underwear? does it matter? should i keep them both or should i throw them both out? please advise.

Once I bought Schwilly some underpants, but they were the wrong size. She was mad.

You should burn them, I believe. Or leave a note in goat's hole's home! Aw-geezers!
