An Incomplete Inventory of Clothing Items In My Possession That Technically Belong To Other People:
1. origin: An Italian boy who I was set-up with for a sorority event in college.
circumstances: It's Calvin Klein extra fine merino wool, so normally I would feel bad about keeping this. But, this sweater is - not exaggerating - my favorite item of clothing. I've worn it so many times that the under arms have turned to felt. I just love it more than he did.
2. origin: Some girl who left her shirt at my boyfriends house before we started dating.
circumstances: He says they didn't hook up but I'm skeptical because otherwise why would you take your shirt off?
3. origin: Ex-boyfriend
4. origin: My sister.
circumstances: I ran out of clean underwear the day before her wedding so I took these out of her drawer without asking because she wasn't in the mood to be asked for a (very personal) favor.
