+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: April 1

So, I have a confession to make.  This weekend, I opened my mail to find that a local retailer had sent me a pair of velour track pants.  Because I had heard so much about how comfortable they are, I decided to give them a whirl.  And you know what?  I loved them.  Wore them all weekend, and even to an impromptu brunch at a neighbors apartment.  I have to say, I was wrong.  

Yes, I was wrong.  Don’t gloat.

April Fool’s.  Obviously.  Velour track pants?  Not even if the only other option was shearling lined flannel pants.

    I knew something was wrong when you said you wore them to brunch. EVEN IF YOU LIKE THEM, you don’t actually wear them places.

    … except to take exams when in law school. I MEAN, WHAT?

    Ha! That’s where I started to question too, Meg. I stay in pajamas as much as possible when I’m home, but even I would throw on jeans to go next door to borrow a cup of sugar. I thought, surely, these were fancy sweatpants.

    You absolutely got me. I mean, I was horrified, questioned weather I could ever return to the site, and then safe to say very relieved.
