Which leads me to my small rant, which requires a bit of background. Scott and I went to the mall yesterday, and I had the expressed purpose of getting a couple of new bras. If there are two things I am uncomfortable with shopping for, they are bras and dresses (prom dresses, and thank God that bull is over). But I went anyway. I found some luck at the first place and decided to go to the second place anyway. I can't tell you how embarrassed I was, and not just for me, but for Scott as well. At least there were other guys around as well. And hey, I told him he could wait outside if he so desired. Anyway, the second place I went into told me they didn't carry bras in my sizein the store anymore, and that they would be selling them online. This follows a pattern I have heard about recently from other friends as well as from my own experiences. Stores don't carry all sizes. They carry the smaller ones over the bigger ones, even though I can say with some certainty that the number of people who need the bigger sizes is larger than the number that needs the smaller sizes. It just goes to show how society is and what sizes it will accept. Larger people can't go shopping in the hopes of finding products. They have to sit at home on the Internet and order. For practically everything. My housemates wondered why I didn't want to go out shopping for Senior Ball dresses with them (minus the fact that I didn't want to go, and then I couldn't go). And not like you have to go to the mall. Of course you don't. It's not like it's part of growing up. But I like going, and I don't want to have to feel uncomfortable, and I have to tell you, I felt damn uncomfortable. I walked back to our car in shock and embarrassment. But Scott cheered me up, as he alwaysdoes.
The excited part is that I will be getting my computer back super soon. Either today or tomorrow, or Wednesday if they try to deliver it on Tuesday and no one is there to sign for it. I don't think they reformatted my computer, which means I have to, and I really should. I'm going to need help figuring out what to take off the hard drive and reinstalling stuff. Bleh. But at least I
will have it back.
