I love comfy pants and TJMaxx. 2 attainable things even on Cape Cod. When I came across a pair of "jeggings" a few weeks ago that were soft, I thought, "OK, soft, comfy pants, potentially in style, I'll take them." I wore them the other day with a big shirt (yes, it was a men's shirt. I wanted to make sure my butt was covered. I do have some pride.) The girls had gone to school before I had gotten dressed so they did not see me until pick up.
First I picked up K,
K "OMG, are you wearing leggings?"
Me "Well, technically they are jeggings."
K with a look like she wanted to die right in the middle school parking lot, "Oh, boy."
Then I walked into the gym to pick up B from jump rope,
B, walking across gym floor to me, "Are you wearing jeggings?"
B "Really? OMG."
Me "Do you like them? They're yours."
B with a look on her face like she could die right on the gym floor "Oh. MY. God. "
Me "Just kidding."
Now I need to remember if I ever need to embarrass them, I will be sure to wear them. Maybe I will wear a shorter shirt next time....
