Yesterday these shorts were pants. Now they're not pants. They're shorts. I wonder if anyone from Great Brittan is reading this and snickering. Because aren't "pants" underpants over there? Well, how about I say trousers. TROUSERS. Yes. Trousers is immanently fun to say. Try it: trousers. TROUSERS! !! Fun, huh?
So I cut them off, rolled them up: viola. No hemming necessary for leather. And that's nice. Nonetheless, I shall have to get out my sewing machine tomorrow afternoon to make the purse. Yes. There were legs. They shall be a purse. Because these shorts were TROUSERS. Now they're shorts (and soon a purse). And all for ten dollars. TEN DOLLARS.
You see, I had been hemming (hahahaha) and hawing about whether or not to turn my lovely thriftstoretendollarsthat'sit! find, of leather pants, into shorts for awhile. In the end I decided to because: leather shorts are just more versatile. I can wear them now in the summer and later in the fall and then again come spring. Whereas leather pants would have only been okay for fall and winter.
And also now I get a purse too (you will see it shortly, keep your trousers on).
Alright, I think it's time to bite my lower lip, spin around in my computer chair, jump up out of the chair, and do a brisk run around the downstairs of my house.
