MORE TRAVEL TALES

When I began packing for this trip to Calgary - I knew that I didn't need much - comfortable clothes to fly in, a good book, black pants and branded shirt for the trade show floor makeup, blow dryer, skin products, etc. All was packed into my suitcase and off I headed to Calgary.

I arrive, take out clothes and hang them up to get rid of the wrinkles in the shirt and pants and this morning I go to put them on only to discover I brought my husband's pants instead of my own. I am wearing man pants! MAN PANTS! MAN PANTS!!! I'm sorry - perhaps I should say trousers. I AM WEARING TROUSERS!

If I had known this piece of information yesterday when I was in the mall shopping (3 new tops at Banana Republic) I would have thrown a nice pair of pants into the mix as well. The only silver lining to this story is that I am feeling thin in the pants. Thank Jebus that my husband is not a skinny minny or I would have been so screwed.

However bad your day may be today - you can always think to yourself "At least I am not DiDi today who is wearing her husband's TROUSERS at a trade show".

Oh my gosh! NO WAY!

Are you tall enough to pull off MAN PANTS!?!

Oh dear. That is not good. Surely there is a mall nearby? Emergency purchases are the easiest to justify. You must get out of those immediately!

Muffy - my husband is not a giant, around 5'10" so I can handle the leg length.

Dating - I wish I had time to go and get another pair of pants but no. I can't believe I am wearing trousers!

Oh this is priceless!! I think I would have totally panicked and ran to the store and bought new pants...there's no WAY I would fit into Pat's pants.

Trousers.

lol! I love this. It reminds me of when I thought it was so bad ass to wear men's trousers from the good will store. Thank god that phase only last like a month (okay, okay...maybe two). At least, you didn't do it on purpose!
