…you might get wet. Summer is almost here, so I thought it was time to invest in some new towels. I can’t be dragging my old, discolored rags poolside. What kind of gay do you take me for? Certainly not someone that goes out in public wrapped in a nasty, dilapidated towel! Let’s face it, this is me we’re talking about, which means all of those old towels have served a man batter landing pad at one point or another.
During a mad a rush to a pool party (I’m late for everything) last summer, I was grabbing some drinks at Rite-Aid and realized I’d forgotten a towel, so I bought one there. Tip: Don’t do that. It shed little fuzzies all over the place (i.e. all over ME when I tried to dry off).
Since I wanted to replace my entire towel collection, I did a little research. Yes, I’m that nerd. Yesterday I splurged and spent close to $100 on all new towels – one for each day of the week – plus matching hand towels to place by the sink. I found some really fancy plush ones that were $25 each, and then compared those to Bed Bath & Beyond’s Lasting Color. They were $6. I’m still cheap, so I got those.
They’re kind of basic, but they do the job. I’d recommend splurging if you have the cash!
