21st Century Cotton
maintained the same weight since I was seventeen, and adding only
one inch to my waist size (Sweet Mom says my shape has changed), I
am uniquely qualified to report on 21st Century Cotton.
I used to wear clothing until it
wore out. Now with the destruction of the American textile
industry, we are fortunate to acquire all of our clothing from Asia.
These remarkable fabrics from the Far East never wear out.
They just shrink until they no longer fit.
Perfectly good shirts, underwear,
jeans, and tee shirts all go to the used pile. Then, off to
Wang Mart we go for a new set. For a few months they fit loose
and comfortably. Jeans start getting tighter, shirttails get
shorter, underwear and tee shirts start binding. My PDA no
longer fits my shirt pocket. Before showing much wear, off to the
collection they go.
It is rumored that I have
grandchildren that never wear clothing twice. Now Grandpa
Davey looks as freshly attired, since his clothes never wear out.
