I have a pair of yoga pants

This is not something intentional. I bought them for my youngest daughter, who plays tennis and who’s been freezing during matches because it’s still April.

When she put them on, the broad band that is indicative of this style of clothing flapped and gapped over her flat tum. “You should try them on,” she said.

“I’d look like a sausage,” I said, thinking of my own tum, which reflects having had babies and eating chocolate at least once each day. Yet, in the privacy of my room, I did try them on, and was surprised.

With a hip-length top, I mused. Maybe. Probably.

I sprinted down the hall to her room. (Yoga pants will make you do things like this.)

“You look hot,” she said with approval. I didn’t believe her. This daughter is known for rants about body positivity. But, it didn’t really bother me that she was fudging.

I flexed my calves. I bent at the waist. I did a squat. (Again, yoga pants will make you do things like this.)

“You’re going to wear them every day, aren’t you?” she suggested.

She was clearly wrong. I have only worn them five of the last seven.

  1. I have a lot of oddball pants but with a long top over them, the “multitude of body sins” are well and truly covered and I’ve found people making comments about the neat tops…because they aren’t look at my waist/butt line

    1. You will love them!! I love the style of Dr. Seuss. There’s a tiny bit of homage to a Meryl Streep movie in the title. If anyone would get this, I suspect it would be you given your delight in poetry. Do you “hear” it? πŸ™‚

      1. πŸ™‚ I knew you’d know it!!! That is one of my favorite first lines — right up there with “Tom!” and “Call me Ishmael.” I think Jan Karon once started a book with, “Gophers. Again.” That’s equally fun.

      2. I’ve never seen that. But, if you’re recommending it, I’ll have to check it out. I suspect our tastes are similar based on our book likes. Have a blessed weekend. πŸ™‚

  2. So I’m laughing as I read this because I’m sitting here wearing a pair of yoga pants and one of my husband’s sweatshirts.
    Evening comfort+ it was a long day in nice clothes + no one but the family will see me = yoga pants
