Story time: Cambodia
1. Woke up at stupid o'clock in the morning to pick up my laundry from my hostels reception before heading out for a long day of temple walking. Turned out none of my clothes had been hung to dry, so I was left with what you see here: Harem pants, a tank top and a fucking thermal shirt.
"Jules, why were you wearing a thermal shirt in 180° heat?", you didn't ask.
Well you see, shoulders are considered to be an incredibly egregious part of the body in some parts of the world. There's no logical reason behind it, but gotta respect the culture you're in. Even if their ancient customs have really just become a business ploy to rip money off of people. *coughs* I digress.
2: I think there are moments in life that everyone subconsciously dreads. Of course we don't know we're dreading them until they happen. The very second this photo was taken, I had one of these moments. As I took those fateful steps upwards, I heard it, the sound of my brand new $2 pants ripping at the seams.
Jesus, fuck me now.
I spent the next 5 hours being hyper aware of the fact that I was becoming more and more crotchless with every step I took, and kicking myself for my (lack of) underwear choice. Sorry, ancient gods, but at least I didn't show my shoulders? 💁🏼🍑 .
3/4: As soon as I got back to my hostel that evening, I ran straight into my room to change, immediately throwing my shredded pants in the bin.
Being that we are both broke (cheap) backpackers, Jake was adamant that I not waste the $2 I spent on these pants, but recycle instead. Using his fine innovative skills, I now had a trendy crop top. Here's a raw/intimate look into that moment.
Who wore it better?
There's no right way to answer that.
If nothing else, can we all just agree that shower heads do not belong directly next to the toilet?
