I must have 10 pairs of jeans but there's only one pair that I wear. Then when that pair gets so worn that the blue turns to a relative of off-white in high-wear areas, I'll get a new pair of jeans, and then those are the ones that I wear every day. But once in a while, say laundry day, or when I spill a glass of beer all over my jeans and they smell like beer (in an unpleasant way), then I'll have to go back to my old ones. I'll put them on and wonder at how I could ever have worn them so much. They're so foreign and oddly shaped in inappropriate places.
