... man, I need new underpants.
OK, so I have a weird post-breakup ritual that I always go through: I give my undie drawer a makeover.
I did a major purge/splurge after I broke up with The Mush Mouth. (A 2+ year relationship.)
I did the same thing after The Murse. (A 6+ year relationship.)
And again (albeit on a smaller scale) after The Divorcee. (An on/off fling for about 10 months or so. Hence the smaller shopping spree.)
Honestly, I have no idea why I do it. Maybe it's because it's a little something I can do as a pick-me-up that only I know about. (Well, until I blabbed it to all of you guys, that is.)
And doesn't everyone feel better about themselves when they're wearing cute undies versus raggedy old torn ones? (Don't get me wrong. It's not like I'm buying sexy satin thongs or crotchless lace g-strings. Nope, I'm pretty much a boy shorts and cotton bikinis kind of girl.)
My point is this: I realized today (after noticing the ripped trim on one of my fave pairs) that it has been so long since I've had a major break-up that I really just need to go buy some new undies. Without the requisite heartbreak that goes along with it.
Lucky for me, my birthday is coming up. So I at least have a birthday coupon from Victoria's Secret to get me started.
How about you? What rituals do you have after a breakup?
