My clothes have been abusing me.
Well, not my clothes exactly, but things that I wear. My tortured history with contact lenses have been discussed here and there, but I’m not even talking about them this time.
The first culprit is my watch. I put it on and it seems like half the time I end up with an extremely ugly rash within some period of time. One time it took less than a day. Another time it took a couple days, though maybe it was fine until it went on the attack on the last day when the rash appeared.
Further, the rash takes more than a couple of days to go away. I switch my watch to the other wrist, but it’s never comfortable there and before too long (a lighter) rash appears there, too. But then I’ll go and wear it for several days and nothing would happen.
At this point, it would probably be worth the $10-15 it would cost to replace it. At least these aren’t turning my wrists green.
The second culprit has been a pair of tennis shoes I bought a year ago. The shows are never uncomfortable. They don’t seem to bite or pinch in the slightest. Until I’ve been wearing them a couple of days and then my toes are in horrible shape. At that point, it doesn’t matter whether I am wearing the tennis shoes or my trusty boots or something else.
