Normally I am quite the fashionista... wait, no. I will make no excuses. Want to know my true thoughts on overalls? I love 'em. LOVE THEM. I always have. And while I feel my style of clothing has drastically changed, (hopefully for the better) over the years, I still hold on to a lifelong love of overalls. Maybe they're lame, maybe they're hillbilly'ish, maybe they are ugly city, but i don't care. I do not care.
A couple of years ago i was clothing shopping with a friend and we were in H&M and i saw some overalls. I gasped and said to my friend who has excellent style, "Ohhh please can i get them? please please pleeease..." She consented reluctantly and i bought them and i was so happy. I love them. Some things i am drawn to in life and overalls are one of them and I can't deny it and not even will I allow pride to stand in my way. or shame. of which i have none.
I haven't worn them much this winter which is foolish because i can't wear them in the warm months but I recently remembered their existence and have gleefully gotten some good use out of them. The other day i washed them and they were all new and clean and i was more than a little excited to wear them.
One slightly annoying thing about overalls is having to undo straps and whatnot when using the bathroom. But hey, no big deal. Anyway, i was prepping to do so and (sorry for the TMI, but not really) lowered myself down and got all nice and situated. I heard this faint strange sound and for a milisecond had a fleeting thought but then--naaaahh... It's always been a fear of mine with overalls but it would never happen. I then proceeded to finish my business. When I emerged I discovered what i feared actually DID happen. It was one of those moments where you're like, ohhhh MAN. How do i recover from this? Kind of like the time i dropped a giant full bottle of applesauce which shattered and splattered all over the floor and there was applesauce and glass everywhere and i had NO IDEA WHAT TO DO.
So I stood up and realized, yes.. it actually happened: First I lowered my strap INTO the toilet and then proceeded to pee on it. GROSS GROSS GROSS. And i had been so happy to wear them. Fresh clean overalls. Why, oh Universe of Random Happenstance--Thou who often smiles upon my fortune, and now inexplicably frowns so harshly--why??? I was a little bit crushed, I'll be honest. Anyway, i had another gross-out laugh moment. So gross it's funny. Because it's better to laugh than vomit, as I always say.
And that is a recent experience with my overalls.
