My Blue Jeans

Friday, May 06, 2011

While I admit to nothing, a few years or so ago, I MAY have bought a pair of blue jeans that were, I thought, a touch snug. This MAY have been around the time that swing dancing had made a comeback (just to give you a time frame.) Perhaps said jeans were put in the bottom drawer as "inspirational" pants to get me to loose a few pounds. And maybe, over the course the past few years, they saw the light of day once or twice, if that often. I loved them from afar.

Over the weekend, my DH may have thrown out a few pieces of clothing that were a touch raggedy or too large. One such item that found its way into the trash can were a pair of blue jeans that had a hole in the rump and continuously fell down when I took more than 3 steps. Slightly embarrassing when I accidentally flashed my sister's street after running after an errant child.

So today, being casual dress day at work, I dusted off the old jeans from a few years ago and put them on. Sure enough, not only do they fit, but instead of my needing to lose a few pounds to fit into them, they need to loose a few inches to fit onto me!
