Weather and Pockets
The weather here is very odd....for anyone who has grown up in Colorado, you know the old saying.."If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes!" One day it is 80 degrees and the next it is snowing heavily. How is one to dress in this craziness? If you are going out, you need to be fully prepared, with a coat, sweater,tank top,umbrella,snow boots,shorts, and flip flops. Getting dressed is often a challenge, so many days staying in lounge pants is just the thing! My sister and I call them "man pants", you know those plaid flannel, baggy pants that are beyond comfort. Mine have to have pockets, in fact all my pants have to have pockets. What is it about making pants or pajamas without pockets? Don't they know we need a place to put a tissue, dog treats, reading glasses, and most days.....cigarettes and lighter. (I know, I know) I have man pants in many colors and fabrics, but I have to confess, the pants I received for a gift (without pockets) are in small squares, for cleaning my glasses and computer screen. Does anyone else feel strongly about pockets????
