Default Wide pants. Funny story!

So, I have close friend. She has been really supportive about the weight loss and asks me how I do it. I think of her as being very slightly overweight, but no major weight problem.

She calls me a couple of nights ago and tells me that she has bought some black pants at a thrift store and they are too wide for her, but she thinks they would fit me-- would I like them?

So, I was thinking, well, I'm not as wide as I used to be--- maybe if they're too big for you, they'll be too big for me... but then I thought-- no she probably sees me that way I really am so the pants will probably fit.

She drops off the pants, and... sigh... the wide pants fit like a glove. I think, oh well, I guess I'm still wide.

But then, later that evening, she calls back, all embarrassed-- telling me that she is so sorry that she dropped off the wrong pants-- instead of the wide pants, she dropped off the ones that fit her!

Guess I can't wear her cast-off wide pants after all!

No more wide pants for you!! It's interesting to get a little glimpse into how others view you.. turns out she was wrong! Sounds like it would feel pretty darn good

That's cool. Do you get to keep them or do you have to give them back?

very funny - can't wait to find out how she reacts when you tell her that the not-wide pants fit you perfectly!

HAHAHAHA....

the funny thing is that after I tried on the pants, I told my DD "oh poor me, the "wide pants fit perfectly..." LOL, and my DD took the phone call from my friend...

I said, "did you tell her that the smaller pants fit me perfectly?" and she said "I didn't think that would be tactful mom..."

I won't say a word, because my friend has been going through a lot lately and I know the pants offer was an offer of kindness, but I still got a lot of secret enjoyment.
