funny story about clothes

at least, I thought it was funny. I bought some pajama pants at Target a couple of weeks ago. I grabbed the XL hanger because, well, pajama pants are for being comfortable, right? when I tried them on (immediately after getting home), they were very very snug. I didn’t pop any seams or anything, but I did pop the top button off eventually … eh heh. two days ago we were at Target again, and I found another pair of pajama pants on sale for $5 (more like $4.98) and looked for the biggest size they had, since XL is too small for me. this is irrelevant to the story, but the XXL was $9.98 which I can only conclude was an error since the rest of them were $4.98. not one to ask unnecessary questions, I pulled out the XL and, surprised to see that it looked much larger than my other pair, ended up buying it. sorry about all the commas in that sentence. anyway, as I was checking my first pair of pants to see if they were the same brand as the pair I had just purchased, I see for the first time that they’re a S.

this is not the first time I’ve burned myself by not checking the size inside the object of clothing before I buy it. you would think I’d have learned the lesson by now. at least I don’t feel as fat as I did before!

  1. If it were me, I would have immediately checked the size as soon as I saw they were tight. Yay for fitting into a small!..sorta
