Cleaning Out My Closet

I can no longer wear this sweatshirt I bought in London in '05 - it's too small - but I loved the print so much, I will post it here.

My friend was hanging out a few weeks ago, and she saw my giant bag full of clothes to donate and asked if she could look through it. Sure, I said.

But as she started digging through the bag, a thought formed in my mind, foggy at first but then startlingly clear. I realized - there was a dress that she had given me in that donation bag.

Oh no! Social faux pas. The white trash bag wasn't quite opaque, and I could see the dress lurking in the middle of the pile, my friend inching closer and closer as she pulled out each layer of clothing. But what could I say? There was no going back now.
