My pants were on backwards

Yes, that is what I said. My pants were on backwards. Chris and I were heading home from a little vacation up north in Vancouver, British Columbia. On the way home we stopped at some outlets, as I wanted to start some Christmas shopping BEFORE Black Friday, and all the crazy world is out getting the deal of their life. We just happened to be driving by some outlets on our way home. Not usually the destination I pine for, but we saw, we shopped, we conquered.

Well, maybe not conquered. We left with a t-shirt and another top, and some baby gifts, so not a crazy shopping spree, but for me just going is enough. Before we left, I kept thinking my pants felt funny. I kept having to pull them up in the back, again and again. It was not until I went to the bathroom that I realized my pants were on backwards. Of course, I had tried on pants at a few places, but who knows how long I was walking around with my pants on backwards. Now, let me tell you I was wearing black Nike Pro tights, so it was not like it was as obvious as it would have been if I was wearing a pair of jeans backwards. But still, my pants were on wrong. Maybe I am getting old, or maybe I just need a vacation, some turkey, and some sleep.

Has that ever happened to you? It reminds me of those days when you get to work and you think, did I put on deodorant and brush my teeth? Or when you wake up from the dream where you went to work without a bra and if you are at all endowed like me that would be quite a nightmare. Sometimes I think when we have those dream/nightmares it is our body and mind telling us that it is time for a break and some rest/relaxation.

When was the last time you had your pants on backwards?

  1. So funny how we do strange things without noticing. I was deciding which shoes to wear for an important presentation in front of an audience. I put one of each pair on and walked around, then in a rush to leave, totally forgot. Did anyone notice? Not sure…but no one mentioned it. Another time, did the same thing deciding between 2 pairs of earrings. Maybe the lesson is that most people just aren’t as observant as we think they are. Might be fun to keep testing that…on purpose!


    • It would be totally fun. I also think it is funny that things like that sometimes make us feel odd, or off balance. Like matching errands or two different shoes can turn the world upside down. I guess unless one is a ballet flat, and the other a stiletto 🙂

  3. I had a clear dream last night that my pants were on backwards, went to a secluded spot to change them and was caught in a flood. Someone on a train directed me to run in front of the oncoming flood to get across. The dream is still clear in my head.

    My wife and I have just separated and she left me with our four year old boy..
