The bargain pants
Everyone who knows me...knows I love a bargain. After Christmas, I found a pair of pajama pants 90% off at Wal-Mart. They were only a $1. They weren't necessarily my style, but for a buck, I could wear them around the house.
Well, I tried my "bargains" on the other day and it was to mixed reviews. I walked out to the living room and asked Doughie, "What do you think?" She said, "Are those made for women?" (Never a good comment) I said, "Of course! They fit me don't they?" She said, "I guess...." and it sounded more like "not just no....but...."
So, I decided that I better go look at my $1 pants a little closer. I looked in my bathroom mirror. The pants are cream colored and have a funky picture on one of the legs...not too bad so far....after all, they were just a buck. I turned to look at my backside and that was when I knew the horrible truth. No ones hiney should look like that. My cellulite was on display in such a way that I vowed to diet that very day. Also, I didn't notice before, but the pants had a flashing light. So when I moved, it was like one of those "wide-load" trucks beeping as it backs up. Not a good look....even for around the house. Honestly, nude would be preferable.
I won't be wearing these "bargains" again. If anyone is braver than me....you can have them. Call me or comment and these babies are yours!

Please share if you have had a "Fabulous deal" like mine....
