Recently, I mail-ordered two pairs of pants in a smaller size. Over the course of a few days, I tried to evaluate the purchase.
First try-on: Neither of these fit right. I'll have to take them back. I can't believe I misjudged so badly; what a waste of time and money.
Second try-on: Well, the black ones are what I want. The blue jeans are still too small. Or the cut doesn't fit quite right--see those creases across the hip? They don't feel right. They'll have to go back.
Third try-on: You know, I think both pairs of these pants fit.
I said to DD, I think the problem may be all in my head. She had told me both pairs looked fine every time I tried them on. She was very polite about agreeing with my statement about the issues being all in my head. She's such a good kid.
