All day today I felt really crappy.

I'd gotten on early, thrown on a pair of old suit pants and a blouse, and trudged to work.

As soon as I got to work, my stomach started to hurt. A dull, unremitting ache.

All afternoon, my back was aching as well. And I felt like I couldn't take a deep breath.

I had no idea what was going on!

When I got home, I told the Husband that I wasn't feeling so well, and would probably just go to bed.

So just now, I decided to take a hot shower before bed, hoping that would make me feel better.

I went in the bathroom, unbuttoned and unzipped my pants, and Voila! Suddenly all of the pain went away.

It was a miracle!

I could breathe, my stomach suddenly felt fine and my back pain evaporated.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. I realized that my pain and discomfort were caused by one thing:

My old suit pants were too tight!



If the shoe fits, wear it. If the pants don't, let them out! What a relief!

Yes, I guess this is how women used to feel when they had to wear corsets..

I know that feeling well. Been packing on the pounds lately and my pants are strangling my waist.

That's the worst. I think it's even worse if one realizes one's pants are too tight because then one feels fat the entire day.
