Today's adventure with Elly and her new tight pants reminds me of a story that actuallly happened to me while living in Brussels, Belgium. The apartment above me was occupied by 2 attractive single women in their late twenties. They were going on vacation in Italy and decided to both buy new Jeans. They wanted a good fit so they bought tight fitting pairs. Then they decided to make them even tighter buy wearing them in a bathtub full of very hot water so as to shrink them even tighter. That worked just fine. However, after applying the hair dry,shrinking them even more, they were so tight they could not take them off. So, after much effort, they showed up on my doorstep since I was in the hand tool business. So, using a pair of very sharp new pruning shears I performed the operation to free them from their bondage. Ah yes, the things I did in the name of good international relations.
Bill Borgers, Laguna Woods ,CaHi Lynn: I can commiserate with the sausage casing pants. I believe that calories are tiny tailors that tailor your clothes one size smaller overnight. Thanks for my daily fix of FBOFW, you make my day brighter. Now it is time to make cookies! *G*
Vicki BI can understand the frustration of pants that suddenly don't fit, and wanting to keep them for when you do (theoretically) lose the weight, but why wear them when they don't fit? Those are the days to wear something looser. Otherwise, you'll be miserable and in more need of comfort food, which just makes the problem worse.
