Something odd happened the other day. A bit after publishing my Troubles with Torrid post and sharing it to Instagram, I got a notification that Torrid had liked one of my posts. I had a momentary “Bet that was a mistake” thought, then promptly forgot it and went about my day.
Something called it to mind again the next day, so I checked to see if Torrid hand unliked my post yet.
Sure enough, no sign of Torrid liking the post. However, I checked if the notification was still in my “heart” section because it would make for an interesting blog post.
Well, the notification was still there, but the post that Torrid liked was a vacation photo from September 24. Whoever liked the post would have had to scroll back 37 rows to find it.
It’s cool that Torrid liked one of my photos, but it’s not Torrid related, it’s not fashion related, it isn’t even plus-size or body positivity related.
So, if anyone has any suggestions as to why Torrid would randomly like one of my semi-old photos on the day after I shared my post complaining about them, please let me know. I can’t come up with a plausible reason.
