Last week I learned the hard way that using the belt loops on blue jeans as handles is not a good way to pull them on. It is, however, a good way to rip a hole in them!
Last night I learned that my blue jeans must just have it out for me. I kneeled down to pet the dog and tore a hole in the knee my jeans. Just like that! I bent my knee, they ripped. These jeans were not that old, and they were not tight! At all! Evil evil jeans!
So now I have to get yet another pair of replacement jeans. I hate shopping for jeans. I bought a pair at Old Navy to replace the beltloop pair. I tried them on at home (I hate fitting rooms if I can avoid them) and they fit. Mostly. They fit great in the thighs, and through my hips and butt, but the waist is a little big. Like, absolutely-must-wear-a-belt bit. I don’t know how they expect someone like myself, with no butt and no hips, to have such a large waist. It’s strange. But the tags are off and I’ll suck it up and wear a belt for now. Then it’ll be time to go back out and do some serious pants shopping, to hopefully find more that actually fit me like they’re supposed to.
