So here's what happened. I went to Old Navy the other day to pick up some graphic tees mainly, and a shirt or two. On my way to the shirts I saw some nice Khakis and a pair or two of jeans that I liked, and I said what the heck, I'll give them a shot. So I picked up a 31/30 of each because that is and has always been my size. First my plan was to just buy them without trying them on because they usually fit me quite well, but I was in no hurry that day so I went to the fitting rooms. I was kind of surprised because all 3 of them were too loose, not a lot, but too much to wear them without a belt. This came as a surprise because I didn't know or notice I'd lost weight, a little bit maybe, a pound or two. So I went back to the mens section and got them in 30/30. They fit perfectly. They were comfortable and just right, not too tight but not too loose. I kind of walked around the store in the khakis once or twice to check out if they're good, and I liked them a lot. The guy at the fitting rooms said they're not too short and not too long and that I look good in them. I kind of struck up a conversation with him and was thrilled when he handed me a 35% coupon that you were supposed to have gotten in the mail and that was good only for a couple of days.
Anyway, the reason why this was so special was that I hadn't really expected this, nor was I too excited or anything, but not unsurprised either, maybe mildly surprised. I mean it's not like I gained or lost 20 pounds or something, now that would have been a big thing. It was more like a little thing, a tiny surprise. I guess I have to start looking for 30/30s now when I go shopping in the future, and no longer pick up the 31/30s like I used to do.
All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home
