I guess you could say… vintage?

Last night, I came to a realization. I have owned a certain t-shirt for almost 8 years… and I still wear it. In fact, I’m wearing it as I type this post.
When it comes time to do spring/moving cleaning, I can almost always get rid of at least a shopping bag full of clothing. But I never throw away this shirt. It’s become so thin soft over the years, and is almost comforting to me.
I wear this long-sleeved, light grey beauty to sleep in, trips to the PC, occasional work-outs, and on the few days that I stay home watching Golden Girls reruns all day long. I know it’s old. It’s thin. It’s from a HIGH SCHOOL fundraiser (the Make-A-Wish telethon in 2002 for any PHS alumni reading this) for crying out loud. But I still wear it. And refuse to give it up.
But, is this behavior normal? Should I be on “Hoarders” for keeping something so old and, for the most part, meaningless? Does ANYONE else out there have an article of clothing this old… and still wear it??
