So Friday is Jeans Day at my office. And being the good little ruffian I am, I jump at any chance to wear jeans. Unfortunately, although I was in a size 4 at this time last year, my waistline has expanded a bit and now I hover from a 10-12 (although I’m working on getting back to the 4.). My two good pairs of jeans are a Gap size 4 and an Old Navy size 8. Since I worked out last night, I was feeling quite positive when I woke up this morning. Those size 8s were going to fit whether they wanted to or not because dammit, I was wearing jeans to the office! So I struggled with them this morning, having to lay flat on the bed in order to zip them up. No biggie, I always had to do that with my size 4 anyway, and they were comfortable once I got them on. These feel a bit tight, but you know, it’s probably just because I haven’t worn them in awhile. They’ll loosen up.
I get in the car and have to bend at the waist to get in. Whatever. They’ll loosen up. Driving to work was slightly painful, but they’ll loosen up. I get to work. I’ve been sitting here for the past two hours thinking “They’ll loosen up.”
They haven’t loosened up!
I’m in pain.
Vanity is a bad, bad thing.
