“A Camp Fuller staff shirt from MW. He thinks I gave it back to him but I just gave him one of mine. I loved his because it smelled like campfire even after I washed it.” creeeppppyy
Alexi Sarah, do not even talk to me! I know that I’m creepy, but don’t pretend that you’re not! And don’t pretend that you did not steal MY Watertown Raiders shirt!
I like to put on boys’ clothes and wander off with them. Sometimes the theft isn’t intentional. Sometimes stuff is returned. Sometimes the theft is reciprocal. I didn’t even kiss most of these boys. I just like them and I like their stuff!
A vintage Benetton argyle sweater and two hats from DC, but I returned them following our breakup. Plus some other stuff I’m not at liberty to discuss.
Red argyle socks from RH. I recently got bleach on the bottom of one and I almost cried!
White socks with black stripes from PMT, who recently got in touch with me after ignoring me for years.
A PCD soccer jacket from AB that I wore every day for weeks during the summer of 2007. I gave it back, though.
A Camp Fuller staff shirt from MW. He thinks I gave it back to him but I just gave him one of mine. I loved his because it smelled like campfire even after I washed it.
A random orange shirt from GS. I don’t even remember how I got it but I ended up throwing it in a fire.
A Polo from JQ. Actually, he gave it to me because I said I liked it. BUT he stole my first Camp Fuller staff sweatshirt from me that day. I wonder where that Polo is…
Oh, and from Mr. Lover Lover: A plaid J. Crew shirt and red J. Crew (I think) corduroy pants (returned), an Apple shirt, a Batman shirt, two pairs of boxer shorts (one returned), one red hoodie (returned), one flannel shirt THAT HE IS NEVER GETTING BACK, one pair of black sweatpants, multiple pairs of socks (returned?). TO BE CONTINUED as I continue to steal his clothes.
