Something I learned today

Or rather, something I remembered.

So, I've been looking for a men's A-frame tank, which was seemingly impossible to find in my neck of the woods. Finally, I found a women's tank of basically the same style and and appropriate size, and, convinced I wouldn't find anything better, snapped it up - for $12. Ok, fine, shirts cost money.

Except I ducked into Walgreen's tonight to buy batteries, and saw that they had a men's underwear section. Curious, I checked to see whether they had what I'd been looking for. Umm, yeah - in a 3-pack for $3.99. Whee.

So, yes, I remembered today that men's clothing is cheaper than women's clothing - which is why, until I grew hips at puberty, I wore boys' jeans. It'd be nice, since we're expected to have a more voluminous wardrobe and to pay more per item than our brethren, if we made more money to make up for it.

Or, hell, the same amount of money.

But I guess that's too much to ask, eh?

Same with shower products. Soap "for men" is usually cheaper.

women's razors also cost more, just for being pink. which makes me sad, since i love pink.

I would assume men's underwear is cheaper too--I just bought a three pack of boxer briefs for $25--but then I realized that I've never actually purchased my own underwear before.

$25 is RICOCKULOUS. I buy Kmart underwears for, like, $10 a sixpack.
