We've all heard that expression, right? Well, I seem to belly up to the kitchen counter. With gusto.
In the winter time, I frequently wear a cozy, comfy flannel shirt over a turtleneck. And this is what eventually happens to the front of all of them.
Notice the white spots down near the bottom button? The flannel is 'bout worn clear through here. And there's really no way to mend it so it looks good again.
Here's a closer look for you. It took me a while (never claimed my elevator went all the way to the top) to figure out why that was happening.
It's because when I work in the kitchen, either at a counter or at the sink, that part of my shirt rubs up against the edge of the counter. Why?
1) I'm too tired to stand up straight so I have to prop myself up on the counter to keep from keeling over.
2) My belly is so fat that it comes into contact with anything I get close to. (Be very careful with your comments on this one.)
3) I spend waaay too much time in the kitchen.
Seriously, does this happen to anyone else or is it just a weird thing that happens to me . . . and my flannel shirts?
