My pants are made of velvet. Navy velvet. They are almost hilarious pants. I’m not sure what it is about velvet pants, apparently they makes me chuckle, like I am one small step away from wearing a pair of Juicy Couture sweat pants, “JUICY” emblazoned across my ass. And while these words have gotten me into trouble in the past, I must admit, velvet pants are so comfortable. And warm, much warmer than I expected. So warm in fact, that I was able to wear my seasonally inappropriate peep toe platforms!
I wore these pants on the plane returning from Ottawa. They wound up costing me $15.00, and for almost hilarious pants, $15.00 is the perfect cost. Of course, when the zipper broke in the tiny airplane bathroom when I was somewhere over a great lake, I cursed the same $15.00 price tag that I’d previously celebrated. I spent what felt like an hour attempting to wrangle the zipper closed, until finally, I conceded defeat. The zipper had won this round. The second I left the bathroom, grateful that I’d decided to wear an extra long tank top that covered the wide open window to my Hanky Pankys, I also realized that my struggles with the zipper had left me red-faced and sweaty, hair all mussed up, tugging manically at the hem of my tank top.
I’m not really sure what the rest of the plane thought was going on in there, but I’ll bet that if I’d gone back in a few minutes after I left that airplane bathroom would have been my own private powder room for the rest of the flight.
Thankfully, once I took the pants off, I was able to zipper wrangle successfully, and the $15.00 almost-hilarious pants were saved. Rejoice!
