So I had a strange impulse to go shopping today. Rather, to purchase the pair of purple trousers I had been thinking about since I saw them a few weeks ago. Towards the end of my tip I stopped in a lingerie store. I tried on this ridiculous lacey thing with a million button and straps. I have to say, it looked fucking AMAZING. I felt like a sex goddess. I was turning myself on.
But I could never afford it.
So I got dressed, and I looked in the mirror. My pants were too tight, my shirt frumpy and dirty. My hair was a mess, I had no make-up on, and my glasses were slanted to the side. I looked like a librarian that had lost everything and ended up on the streets.
I couldn’t help but think, this must be how Superman must feel when he goes back to being Clark Kent.
