Holy of Holies

Do you have a pair of barometer pants? You know, the ones you keep in your closet because you are convinced one day - ONE DAY - you will be able to fit into them again?

They may have been sitting there since high school, or college, or from before your first baby. The ones Miranda (Sex and the City) called her Skinny Jeans. These pants are the holy grail for most women. If you can ever get back into them you just might be prettier, more articlate, and oh yeah, thinner then you have ever been.

Well last night I saw the Holy of Holies (HH) sitting in my closet. It has been a while since I tried them on. But since I ran 12k yesterday for the first time, I was feeling bold, nay confident. Of course, that could have had something to do the massive amounts of endorphines coursing through my system. But before I paniced and pulled my hand away, I was feeling good why wreck it? I decided no girl gets anywhere by avoiding her skinny jeans. They must be braved, and at times endured (you know like when you need a wake-up call after you spent a week eatting ice cream every night, that sort of endured).

I gingerly pulled them down. Would they do up? Would they cling to my ass like my cat when we go to the vet? Only one way to find out.

So did they fit? Let's just say it is safe to start hating me now.
