Summer work has started and I am sitting in the coffee shop after having done all my work-related tasks so I thought I’d just fire up this thing and try posting. I would like to get the old blog muscles back in shape.
I’m just working for a half day today — my husband is home with E for the morning because she’s sick, again, with a cold and a fever. We can’t really get through a single week without at least one of the kids having to stay home sick. I could honestly never stop ranting about this, but I’ll try. I know, they’re building their immune systems and so on, but damn.
Here, let me rant about a different subject: the discontinuation of Old Navy’s tall tee shirts. I am embarrassed to say that I only recently discovered them — as someone who has frequently ranted about how hard it is to find tops with adequate length to cover my long torso, I really should have thought sooner to check the tall section. It’s just that I’ve largely ignored the tall section of most clothing retailers because I never needed longer pants. (I have short legs. All my height is in my torso.) Because regular pants always fit me, I just never considered needing tall sizes for anything. Then I realized buying dresses from the tall section was a life-changer when it came to providing adequate thigh coverage. Then and only then did it occur to me to try tall tee shirts. Well, what a wonderful discovery that was! I LOVE their tall tee shirts! LOVE THEM.
AND NOW THEY’RE GONE.
They’re still offering a selection of blouses and tops in the tall section, but no more of the basic tees. I honestly could just cry. We didn’t have enough TIME together. I didn’t get a chance to buy very many yet. WE NEVER GOT TO SAY GOODBYE *choking back sobs*
I learned of this sad change in their inventory from Swistle (who knows everything), just a day or two after the fleeting thought had flit across my mind that maybe I should order a few more tee shirts for summer. And now I won’t get to. Or maybe I’ll have to start perusing Gap’s tall section. Fine.
