Too Big for the Americas

29 July, 2008 (00:50) | Travelogue


A young boy fishes as the sun sets at the Governor’s Complex in Hagåtña, Guam.

I’ve never been a small guy. I was tall for my age until I stopped growing up. Sadly, I kept growing out. These days, an XL shirt is just a tad too small to be comfortable and a tad too short to let me move freely.

When I arrived in Guam, my first stop was Ross, where I picked up a few Hawaiian shirts, since I packed a little too lightly. They were glorious, perfect, and huge.

Unfortunately, it did not last. Perhaps it was my own fault, washing them with the rest of my laundry without worry. Or maybe it was the lack of washing instructions. Either way, three of the shirts are now too small. Their bottom button sits at my belly button and I feel naked wearing them.

So what do I do now? Do I buy a few more and avoid the mistakes of the past? Do I attempt to exchange them? Or do I toss my shrunken clothes aside, donating them and moving back to the underpacked setup (plus a shirt or two that still fits) I began with? Only time will tell.

  • serious artistic note: I am especially fond of the beach photo with boy followed by beach photo without boy. Creates a nice mood. Subtle.

    Verra nice.

    If you want to write, site down in the morning, say 10 a.m. (although many prefer nine). Set a timer or your watch alarm for 90 minutes. Start typing; it can be this blessed blog if you like, just start squeezing some words out. More will follow; you have more than pretty pictures and mad video game moves in you, but nothing is coming out. Time to squeeze. Do that for five days. See what happens. And wash the shirts in cold, use fabric softener as liquid in the final rinse, and hang in a breezy spot to dry. Ars longa, vita brevis. Some arses are longa than others, but they can still move – so kick it. Like the pics, but they will be so much sweeter to you if you have done that 90 minutes in the morning.
