Something Old

Things of old brings comfort and snugness.
A well worn shirt airy and loose
While that slip elastic band shorts gives you no reason to diet
So well washed, it's the scent of clean worn garment
Dusty with age pair of shoes that has walked a hundred miles,
mold into the feet, slipping in and out at a tug of the feet
My son just cannot part with his faded, loose and distorted pyjamas

Its a passing phase. If we keep wearing the same old comfy clothes until it has holes all over, we would be depriving ourselves from all the new stuff.

Ditto - my kids too - and sometimes its such an embarrasment, esp when we have guests, and they come down in their Pjs to bid everyone goodnight! Some even have holes in them - but they refuse to let me throw them away, "coz it's so comfotable" they say!

Exactly! It's so exasperating.
