“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

Every woman out there is going to sympathize with me today. Because I don’t think there is one of you that hasn’t had a day where you have thought “If I don’t get this [insert offending, constricting, hideous garment of choice here] off of my body RIGHT THIS SECOND I am going to run screaming into the street.”

Unfortunately, whereas we do not have an overly restrictive dress code at my office, I think that they generally frown on going down the hall without pants on.

Said pants are hitting the Salvation Army bag THE VERY MOMENT I get home.

(Edited to add: It’s a sad day when you have a broken leg and the cast is NOT the most uncomfortable thing you are wearing)

    Isn’t it amazing how clothes pretend to be nice until we buy them and bring them home? I’ve had shirts that crawl, bras that pinch, underware that insisted on being outer wear.

    If I took my pants off at work I think I would offend someone. Definitely myself. LOL

    How are you feeling? Have you beat anyone with your crutches yet?!

    I feel that way about my bras every. single. day. these past couple of months. I find it funny that they fit when I put them on but are about two cup sizes too small by 4pm.

    I’m am so right there with you on that. I have spent the last couple of weeks trying to manage to wear things that I can wear sports bras under. Summer heat makes me pissy and bras make it worse! If pants start bothering me, I might have to call in sick!

    I hear you, sista! I am really pissy if my clothes are annoying!

    And there was this one time I ran screaming from court pulling at the laces of my stupid Elizabethan dress and then clawing at the laces of that damn corset and stepping right out of my hoop skirt all before I reached my cabin…..
