holey tops, batman!

The other day, I noticed my black t-shirt had tiny little holes in the front, just below my belly button. Annoyed, I chucked it thinking it must have been damaged in the washing machine. Then the second t-shirt got holes in the same spot. Then a third. Either some sort of moth was living in my navel (possible as I can't actually see it) or something else was amiss.

Thanks to Google, I found out that this is a common occurrence when you switch to a granite worktop (counter.) It's caused by rubbing up against the edge and seems to affect jersey tops more than others. I cannot even make this stuff up. 

I suppose this means an apron is needed until I lose enough stomach or grow longer arms.

Yep - as soon as our concrete counter tops went in, this happened more.....it still happened with regular ones though - rubbed on my belt buckle. I hate that I am just the right height to ruin my favourite shirts. :(

Are you sure you don't have navel moths?

That is so odd! I never had this issue with our laminate counters! I know what you mean, I'm just at the right level to ruin all my tops, too. :(

Melanie, you'd have to check for me - shall we do that after my taxes?
