I like to wear things for forever. More than a 1/2 dozen items in my closet were purchased in high school with my Cheesecake Factory paycheck. In my early twenties, my dog ingested one of my favorite running socks. I found it in his “BM”, washed it, washed it again, and wore that discolored sock for a couple more years.
You have heard about my trusty, blue visor before and Lord knows y’all have seen it on Instagram…
I bought this special number (Nike Feather Light Women’s Visor) over 10 years ago and it has been such a trusty friend. I bet it’s been through the wash over 500 times. Lately, when it heats up (which is every time I wear it) it gets SO stinky. Think of how your stinkiest crevice smells post workout and then multiply that stank by 10. I know, disgusting. Other than the stank, she is in mint condition though – no fading, no rips, no tears. I bet I could get 10 more years out of her, if only I could handle smelling like trash. Which I can’t.
It’s time to force her into retirement… which means the dumpster. This gal has been ridden hard and put away wet – I really cannot pass her on to anyone.
I just pulled the trigger and ordered a replacement. I’m sticking with the Nike Feather Light Visor because, well, I love it. While she is technically a “tennis visor” I think her true calling was as a runner. This time around, I opted for the more versatile black (#boring). I cannot wait to meet her in 7-10 business days.
