I’ve mentioned my “fat pants” in quizzes a lot and in an alarming amount of tweets. Perhaps I should explain. Not that any readers care… But when I’m old an rereading all this shit, I may wonder to myself, what the hell are fat pants? Doubt that… But anyway~
Fat pants in general are a pair of looser fitting, comfy pants you wear on those days you are feeling fat. Certain points during the month, women tend to … expand, and normal, everyday pants are uncomfortable.
MY fat pants were a pair of yoga pants that I bought a few years ago at Old Navy when I was, in fact, at my fattest. Even then, they were quite loose and a baggier fit to begin with. I didn’t just wear them when I felt fatter than regular though. They were just extremely comfortable and I wore them around the house more than any other article of clothing I own (except maybe those damn old Triple 5 Soul hoodies of Hubby’s that I am constantly wearing on top of whatever else I have on, which are also referred to frequently).
Devastatingly, I had them with me in Forks (I always travelled with them as pajama pants) and apparently in my hurry to pack up my shit when we were leaving, I guess they got pushed partway under the bed or something after I had taken them off (very unusual behaviour since I normally fold up everything as soon as I remove it when I’m away from home) and they never made it back into my suitcase. I realized I didn’t have them when we got to the next hotel and we called to get them to send them back to me but they said they weren’t there.
I am heartbroken. I’ve tried to replace them, but they don’t make the same ones anymore. Everything is “skinny” now. Such bullshit.
