What does a doorknob and ultra low jeans have in common?
I have had a love-hate relationship with these jeans since I bought them… mostly I love to hate them. I would quit wearing them but they are one of two pairs of pants that fit right now.
I was walking into the bathroom to help 3yo BC when all of a sudden I couldn’t move. I couldn’t go forward, I couldn’t go backward, I couldn’t go up, and I couldn’t go down.
See that elegant loop on the doorknob? Apparently, it falls right at hip level on me. This wouldn’t be a problem if I were wearing ANY other pair of pants because these are the ONLY pants I have that stop at hip level. The elegantly looped doorkob has a thing for ultra low jeans belt loops, and it hooked my jeans. I was stuck! I couldn’t even wriggle out of the darned jeans.
After much up on toes, then bending of knees, trying to slide the belt loop off the doorknob loop, I managed to twist the belt loop several times and it was cinched even tighter. What to do? I couldn’t reach the phone for help, couldn’t reach the scissors or a knife…. BC isn’t allowed to get those things on his own so I was helpless. But luck and a bit of finger pain later released the interlocked loops. Thank Goodness!
To sum it up, BC announced:
“You are just too BIG for the bathroom, Mama.”
*ahem* Must speak to son about comments on Mama’s size.
