Why, it's enough to make me want to wear them to work on a regular basis!

My inlaws got me a couple pairs of the nicer quality Haggar dress pants for Christmas, and I've worn them (the pants, not the inlaws) yesterday and today, and I have to tell you I think I'm hooked.

I usually buy the old reliable (i.e., cheaper) version and while they are nice and long-wearing, the fabric feels a bit off or something. But these new ones? Whatever sort of poly/wool blend it is drapes nicely, almost like silk, and it's soft and smooth and cool-feeling and during the day I often find myself desiring nothing more than to fondle my pants legs.

Add to this that they don't have pleats or cuffs, the fabric isn't shiny, and they have a cleverly disguised magically stretchy waistband, and it's just about all a husky boy could want in a pair of trousers!

Oh, sure, I know there are probably some of you who will yearn for the days when I would stroll pantsless down 20th Street during my lunch hour, but with these great new slacks, those memories may have to remain just that--memories.

By the way, this is not a compensated endorsement for Haggar, however I would be more than willing to accept as many pairs of these pants as they'll send me.

This reminds me of my favorite packing story.

My friend Tracee was driving me to the airport with a person who will remain nameless. When the PWWRN got into the car I instantly remembered what a poor packer this person was. I turned and asked "Did you pack everything?"


"Did you remember pants?"

"Ah, no."

The PWWRN rushed back in and got some pants. Meanwhile Tracee and I burst out laughing when the PWWRN left the car.

From that point on if either Tracee or I said "did you pack pants?" The other would start laughing.

Was the PWWRN a man or woman?

The reason I initially asked is because I thought the person had come outside not wearing pants, and was trying to figure out why either a man or a woman might be more likely to run outside without pants, but then I realized the person didn't pack any pants in his or her suitcase, and you weren't just being sarcastic and asking him or her if they'd forgotten something.

I need to read better.
