There have been 3 pairs of jeans sitting in the drawer that I haven't been able to get about my knees since 1984. I refused to throw them away. (New ones are going for $75 now at the Big & Tall Stores!)
This morning I thought, "Wonder if I can pull those jeans up and button them?" But I didn't want the disappointment and was scared to try once again and fail.
Lo and behold: THEY ALL FIT. It is, indeed a good day.
Now, if the Bass Weejuns were still around, I would be a preppy once again. (Never happen)
