A story I think you might appreciate:
I bought some white denim/stretch/cotton/bootcut pants from Sears a few weeks back with the upcoming cruise in mind. I can just see me whilst I lean on the railing, gazing over the blue sea, wind whipping my hair, cut sandals, white trousers, precious top....
Anyway, they are way to long and a little gappy in the waist. The story of my life. I did discover today though that they have those little tabs on the side that I can move back to a second button, so I am hoping that will help with the waist gap. They still need to be hemmed though and I want the pockets cut out and sewn shut.
So I take them to a place for alterations. We took tiny Tracey's pants there to have them taken in, good price, nice work. It is actually a big and tall store for men. One of the ladies that does the alterations is a tiny little Asian woman. When I came out of the dressing room she furrowed her brow and I could tell she was "sizing me up" haha...pun...and thinking that the thighs of the pants were a little snug. Again...welcome to my life.
She marked where she would hem them and when I told her about the pockets she said "Don't you think they are a little tight".
No she did-ent!
It was one of those brief out-of-body Matrix experiences where I was hovering over the two of us and I could see me snapping her neck or sitting on her. Instead, I came back into my body and told her I had weight loss surgery and in a months time they should fit just right.
She said good idea.
That's right. Good service recovery :)
