Ripping my runs

I discovered huge gashes in my black floral tights a few weeks ago, and I didn't know what to do with them (other than tossing them out) until I stumbled upon Miss at la Playa's excellent guide to ripping tights.

So I thought, "Hm okay, I'm not allowed to have runs in my stockings at school and I don't have anything in common with the girls photographed by The Cobra Snake, but ripping my already-tattered tights must be good catharsis."

I found a pin in my sewing kit and proceeded to rip my tights. It turned out to be harder than I thought because the floral pattern on my tights (which were made of thicker material) stopped my runs from stretching very far.

However, tearing at my tights was still excellent catharsis. Is it weird that I like the sound of ripping fabric?
