Polka dots and a thrift store shirt.March 2, 2010
I am so, so, very sorry for this one. In case you can’t tell, those are dots wearing lederhosen and funny hats while playing accordions. I drew it so I must post it. Keep moving, the next one it better.
I am very frightened of thrift stores. It’s not the old clothes. It’s not the velvet paintings or the wooden dishes.
It’s the germs.
I am a “germaphobe.” I freely admit this. I am not a tissue-boxes-instead-of-shoes germaphobe of the Howard Hughes variety. I am just very aware of washing my hands, breathing through my nose, and not touching things that might be horribly dirty and covered with germs (i.e. anything in a thrift store). It could be that everything is washed before it is put on the racks, but looking at the clothes at our local thrift store – I don’t think so.
