Shopping for Pants

I have not gone shopping for pants in quite a while. My pants are starting to fray and fall apart. I think they’re beginning to smell too. Small children start crying when they see me shuffling towards them. And the final straw was when a complete stranger tossed me a couple of coins the other day.

Enough is enough. I am going shopping.

A pair of black trousers catch my eye so I tell the shop assistant stalking me, “I’d like to try on these pants please. Size 32.”

“Are you sure, sir? I think they would be quite tight for you.”

I am deeply insulted by this insinuation, so I haughtily retort, “I have always worn 32.”

“Very good sir.”

I strut (trans: lansi) towards the changing room with the pants draped on my arms. I close the door and try putting on the new pants. Uuuurrrggghhh…

The clasps stubbornly refuse to meet.


Suck in ample tummy. I try putting on the pants again. Uuuuuuuurrrrgggghhhh. Still cannot.

I try sucking in my tummy again. Bigger breaths this time. Uuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeegg… Face turning purple. Eeeeeeeeeuukkk…

Niamah. Tiu. Fuck it. I can’t do it. Pant, pant.

I open the door and meekly say to the shop assistant, “Can I try one size bigger?”

“No problem sir,” the shop assistant acquiesces, with the tiniest hint of a smile on his face. I have a feeling he will be bitching about me to his colleagues later, that bastard.

G2000 pants seem smaller these days. I’m going to write to them to complain about this.

    anttyk: “Chancho. When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It’s for fun.” – Nacho.

    anttyk: Size 40! LOL.

  8. Welcome to the world of fashion. Heh. Ladies have long been complaining about sizes getting smaller. L is the new M. And M is the new S. What? You need an XL? Sorry, our biggest size is an L.

    anttyk: Munkeybuttocks.

  12. new pants sux. old pants rock! they tend to grow with you.

    anttyk: My pants don’t seem to be growing at a rate that is consistent with the tummy’s rate of expansion.

    anttyk: I think it’s both.

  14. i want to take sean shopping. i owe her a birthday present. 😉

    anttyk: She’s a simple Klang girl at heart. Take her to a good BKT place, and she’s content.

  15. *tahan laughter* …someone living in denial…

    anttyk: *catches ela and spanks her* *spank* *spank* *spank* *spank some more*
