As a general rule.
But there are some things I HATE shopping for. New swimmers (bathers, togs, swimming costume - wherever you come from) are a given. In fact, I don't even bother trying on new swimmers. I know they are going to look horrid, so I just buy my general size and hope for the best. I now no longer dread swimmers shopping.
But my most hated to shop for item?
I live in my sunglasses. Like seriously.
Why do I hate to shop for sunglasses more than I hate to shop for new swimmers? Well, because I wear them every single day. And without fail, I will buy a daggy, yucky, nana pair. I just know it. Then people will mock me behind my back (or to my face, they may be THAT bad)
I usually wait until I have my cool sister Amy with me. My style counsel.
But, a few days ago, my beloved sunglasses broke. They have been scratched for months, but now, they are broke. Munted. Destroyed. Dead. (Rest assured they lived a long and full life though, they have been with me for 2 years)
I have left the house without sunglasses for the last 3 days, and things are starting to get serious. I can practically feel my naked retinas burning (I CAN...no dramatics here I promise) Even more serious? I have had to put on eye make up every time I step outside as I don't have my sunnies to hide behind.
And I had to do my hair. I can't just throw my sun glasses on my head like an alice band and be done with it.
So, now I have to face the prospect of going to the shop and buying a new pair.
This is complicated further by the fact that Mundubbera doesn't have a sunglass store. The only place in town to buy sunnies is the Chemist. (or the shit shop, but I don't think so)
So wish me luck. I am gonna need it.
(and why do the words Daggy and Munted show up as 'not-proper' words??? I use them all the time they MUST be real words!!!)
