About 10 years ago, I had gotten some dresses, pants, and jeans for Christmas. I had a lovely Christmas dinner and wore a dress and tights. I had lost a few pounds, so I wanted to try on everything. That way, I could return the items that didn't fit when I went to the after-Christmas sales.
During my "trying on" extravaganza, I left my tights on. What was the point of taking them off, right? It was late, and I decided it was time to go to bed if I planned on getting up early for the sales. I took off the clothes I'd been trying on and laid them on the bench at the foot of my bed.
The next morning, I decided that I'd just throw on my new pants and hit the mall. It was time to do some shopping! When I got to the mall, I noticed people were doing 'double takes' to look at me. I was seriously turning heads. I thought "Dang, those five pounds I lost has made me one FINE mama! I still got it goin' on!"
I was feeling so confident as I walked around for 2 hours looking, shopping, and yes...doing a little strutting. I was walking out of a store, and I felt something stopping me in my tracks. I felt like I had a "tail" and someone was stepping on it. Well, I did have a "tail"and yes, someone was stepping on it.
An old man was accidently stepping on the tights I had on the night before. I didn't feel them in the pants because they were thinner than the Spanx ones we have now. When I hurriedly put on my pants that morning I had forgotten that I took off the pants and tights all in one fell swoop. The tights were still in the pants and looked like this for the 2 hours that I was shopping.
No one told me, and I didn't see anyone laughing, so I just assumed that those were the most flattering pants EVER. I was alone and didn't try other clothes on, or I would've caught this mishap. This goes to show you.....don't be thinking you look all fine and sexy.....you could have tights hanging out the back of your pants.
