September 16th

I went to Goodwill yesterday. I decided to poke around the men's tshirts, because I have very few tshirts and for some reason, all unisex tees get put in the men's section at Goodwill. (Except the pink ones.) I found this super comfy, slightly oversized grey tee and fell in love with it, but decided I didn't need it after I found something else that I did need- a cosplay piece I've been seeking out for many, many months. So I left the grey tee behind.

Today I went back to Goodwill. I was feeling stressed after doing some chores and wanted to find the comforting grey shirt and buy it. It had been on my mind since yesterday. I knew it would make me really happy. I went to the men's shirts, and it wasn't there. I scoured every size, every color. I checked the women's shirts. I checked the kids' shirts. I checked and re-checked. It was just a boring grey shirt, why would anyone buy it in the span of a day? I was devastated. I found another grey men's tee, just a plain one, to be a replacement. It wasn't the same, but it was still great. Then, in one last futile attempt, I went back to the women's activewear section. And there it was. My grey men's tshirt in the wrong size spot in the wrong place, it was there. I literally teared up. I'd been searching for almost an hour for this shirt. I grabbed it so fast and bought it (and the replacement grey tee that I also love) and now I'm in bed with my favorite pajama pants and my perfect new tshirt and my favorite perfume and I'm happy. Now I'm going to take a nap. :)
