Black water

I have the bad habit of throwing my clothes around-- strip off when I get hot, put down somewhere, forget I did so or forget where I did, whichever, and then wonder what happened to the thing. This is especially bad at work, where t-shirts and scarves and such will emerge from the laundry after six months. 'Oh it's yours? It's been here forever.'

My pull-over hoodies OTOH are necessities. Outerwear in fall, indispensible innerwear in winter. I notice when they disappear and I wouldn't leave work without them. (Much.) So I was a bit put out when the thick navy one vanished last spring-ish. Wasn't anywhere. Couldn't think what I might have done with it. But hell, it always was too small at the neck and a pain to get off, so forget it. Buy a new fleecy at Honest Ed's. No hood, which is actually a blessing in winter because hoods get wet when it's snowing and don't dry out. But thick and warm and I like it.

It's gone. Can't find it. Sure I had it up to the weekend but in an absent moment put the red hoodie on instead when I went out Sunday morning. Assumed grey one was down in kitchen where it ought to be. And it's not. Aaagh.

There are hoodie stealing Things in my house and I do not like it.

ETA: I have the bad habit of throwing my clothes around and leaving them in my brother's kitchen. (We live side by side in what is structurally a single house.) 'I thought it was John's' says my SIL. Should have asked if they had the navy blue hoodie as well.

    Hard to tell with the persistent grey skies but I'd guess 9/10s of my blossoms have scattered, turning next door's yard into a Yayoi Kusama…

    As someone said about similar circumstances to my own. So, I've finally read The Silmarillion, AKA 'why we can't have nice things', as well as most…
