mallophobia

As I've mentioned before, I have a condition which makes it difficult to avoid attracting spillage to the clothing on the upper-half of my body. This seems to be a recent problem, or at least it seems that way.

Almost every shirt, blouse and other top I own now has some sort of stain on it. Oh, it's not just the infamous blue shirt anymore - the green v-neck has fallen victim as well. And I have a black shirt that's fallen prey to something permanent as well. Mind you, I don't own a lot of clothing. This is really problematic for me.

So, alas, I need to go shopping to again make it so I don't have to wear the same three shirts throughout the week (including a very unseasonal brown turtleneck). And I despise shopping for clothes. Really. It's bad. Bad, bad, bad.

For me shopping is not an experience like those ubiquitous movie montages featuring people having a great time trying on all sorts of wacky clothes (a la "Mannequin", or "The Sweetest Thing"). For me it is torturous. Having to navigate through all those crowds of slow-moving shoppers, all those strollers and old people, all those grouplets of teenagers, all those jerk-offs who actually enjoy being at the mall. *shudder*

I can't talk about it anymore - it's freaking me out. And what's worse is that it's unavoidable. I have to go this weekend or else people are going to start to talk.
