I also got yet another romantic package from the Alex Dodd:
Seriously. I know it's making you swoon with envy.* A phone cord and a Planet Organic t-shirt? I'm a spoiled girl.
Before Alex mailed this to me, he called me to confer about the t-shirt. I was groggy with sleep, but this is what I can remember from the conversation:
"What size of t-shirt do you wear?" he asked.
"I dunno. It depends on how big the t-shirts are," I told him sleepily. "I'm usually a small."
"A small? Are you sure?" he asked scrupulously. I took it from his tone of voice that maybe the t-shirts were on the smaller side to start with.
"Or a medium? I don't know," I said. "But probably a small. You know how big I am. You can probably figure it out just by looking at the t-shirt."
He opted to send me the medium, which reaches down to my mid-thighs.
Alex Dodd, should I take this offensively? Is this how big you think I am?
________________________________________________________*I'm not going to lie, I actually thought this particular mystery package was exceptionally endearing. My phone doesn't reach my bed, so I either have to sit in my desk (which is where I sit 90% of my day, so it's not exactly relaxing) or on the floor when I talk on the phone. Alex Dodd took care of this by turning my 1 foot phone cord into a 25 foot phone cord.
And the t-shirt, despite it's massive size, is made of bamboo and organic cotton and is possibly the softest shirt ever. It may never see outside daylight, but it's going to be a lounging around the house standard. I'm actually wearing it right now.
Wow, who'd have thought a shirt made of wood would actually be super soft!ReplyDelete
The other good thing about the size is, you could wear it as a dress too.
Geeze, give the poor guy a break dude. I can't even tell what size shirt I should buy myself if I'm holding them up, comparison style, in the store.ReplyDelete
And it's not like you're any better at sizing things up. In fact, I think I have a Vanuatu "necklace" hanging on my rearview mirror that would barely fit around 3 of my fingers.
If you're counting, that's:
Alex Dodd: 1(vicariously)
Listen, it was a bracelet! I was sick! I was almost hospitalized! Not a fair argument. (But it made me laugh.)ReplyDelete
Yeah, the whole t-shirt as a dress thing is back again. In case we all fucking missed the 80's in the first place.ReplyDelete
I went to an Oilers game and was shocked to hear the words, "I could've just worn this as a dress," come out of my mouth. Then as though to prove my point a girl strolls up wearing a pink Oilers jersey, pink leggings and pink cowboy boots. I threw up a litle in my mouth.
