Elastic Waist Pants.

Sunday, October 28, 2018

I remember getting a call late at night from someone from my past. It was Mary, and I was a tad skeptical so I asked her to mention something that only we would know. When she did, I was shocked to hear from her, we talked for over 2 hours and at the end she invited me to my 50 year class reunion. She happened to be on the committee to find long lost students. Did I mention she was from Methuen, MA. 3 hour difference in the time zone, as I am in CA.

When I got off the plane in New Hampshire (closer to where we lived, and Boston was tooooo busy) the first thing she said to me was, "what the he** happened to you, you gained so much weight and wearing Elastic Pants." I would rather die than wear those pants. She was wearing jeans and when we went out to dinner, she would undo the top of her pants. I told her with elastic pants you don't have to do that....She didn't think that it was funny.

To make a long story short, She died in her sleep and I am still wearing my Elastic Waist Pants and Very Happy. I have lost lots of my weight and still very comfortable in my Elastic Waist Pants. Oh well, whatever makes you happy right??? She introduced me to WW and would buy all the meals and then put three together. I told her that she was defeating the purpose, but she never listened. While I was there, I ate all the foods I cannot get in CA, so I ate Fried Clams for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and lost 7 lbs.

I had an awesome time at the re-union and met so many of my classmates. It was just one evening, so I made the most of it. Closed the place down. LOL.

    Bev, all my slacks have elastic waists too. I find them more comfortable so again, it is one of those 'to each his own' things. I'd never put down anyone for wearing something that I don't, sorry to say this since your friend Mary has passed away, but it's really rude to make comments on what others wear, she should have known better than to do so.

    Yep, happy you're still here and still wearing those elastic waist pants! Way to go!
