I am a nerd and a big fan of manga (Japanese comics). I'd made an order at my bookstore-within-walking-distance (!!!!) and it took a few weeks, but fiiiinally came in, and I was so thrilled I dashed right out the door. And then I realized I was wearing this long, narrow skirt, and it was really hard to take my usual long strides while walking (even though I'm short, I walk pretty fast normally! especially when I'm going somewhere I want to be quickly. Like high school or the bus stop, or a bookstore with desirable books, or a warm building when it's cold outside...). I had to take many tiny-short steps. Such a bother! So I got impatient and rolled up the waistband to shorten it a few inches, and then continued on my way. It was sooo much easier!
And then I got my beloved books. And I read them. And one of them (pictured, barely) had a cameo by a certain favourite-character from another series (that I haven't actually read much of, only seen pictures from) so I was thrilled to pieces. Glee!
