"Jack Hilden on the purple pants"

"To shop for to reduce anxiety is certainly not recommended by the therapists, but I am of the opinion that it is sufficient sin for us, so that one should not blame herself unnecessarily hard for stupid workarounds. "
"So I went by the Salazar-brothers' sale of its 8 000 vinyl records and came away with a little Erykah Badu and A Tribe Called Quest. Outside the store is the same runthalkande in the slush. It has not helped. I avoid the glances on the street and walk into the nearest clothing store. Has suddenly decided that I want, no need, and the need to move quickly, a pair of pants. Cost whatever it costs."
"the Problem with the anguished shopping is that I hate to shop, regardless of mood. Just the word evokes shivers and I'm sorry that it's already been here several times. To ”go to shops” is my personal version of hell. "
"the Store's light is sharp. Music played at high volume. Sweat breaks out during the thick of winter. At random I pull down the garment, and carry them in his arms towards the locker room. When I take of the shoes is formed gravel small puddles to step around in. An employee knocks on the door, probably she is young and good-looking because everyone who works here is there, and asks if I need help. ”No,” I say and take with a pair of pants and go up to the cashier."
"Perhaps it is the relief of to avoid having to be in the store, and instead on the metro out to the suburb. The blessing in that for each station there is less risk of someone familiar to like to health. Maybe it is the pants. But it releases a little bit. Can raise your eyes and look at the Narnia movie set free outside the window. "
"the Rest of the day in relative silence – the cooking and the dishes. In the evening, I take my pants off and do it for my gf to assess. She examines them in silence for a few seconds. ”They were fine, but ... unusual to you buy purple clothes.”"
"For the first time permit I me to really look at them. They are not just a little dark, as I first thought, they are not even a little purple. They are very purple. And the short grace snatched away. Not that it is necessarily wrong to have purple pants. I was hoping never at all need to take a position to the purple pants, still less to return to the inferno in the store. For those who still do not take into account the soundness and long-term cure, is in any case a box of wine in the pantry. "
