It 's a mystery that I enjoy.

Yesterday I had the privilege of going out in the rain to shop with my dear daughter. As I was walking across the puddle strewn parking lot my slacks got heavier. The fact is that they were quickly getting soaked about the hem. This would not have happened three months ago, so why now? Ah, a mystery!
As I hiked my britches up to keep from stepping on them with my heals and to keep them from getting wetter and heavier as the water wicked up the fabric, I felt the cold dampness against my ankles, I have never had to endure that discomfort and I looked down to see what might be causing the dragging on the wet ground. I saw pants that looked baggy. Surprise! When one loses weight, the parts of one that push the top of the pant out is gone and the result is that the pants effectively get longer!
With the mystery solved, I went home and put the pants in the laundry. when clean, they will be donated to someone who needs pants of that size.
Oh, guess what? I get to go shopping for pants that fit me! Let me see, Goodwil?, Ross?, Kohl"s?, Walmart? ????????
