13/365: Elastic ankled pants

Sent 13 April 2010

You can’t get more satisfying than a pair of tracksuit pants on the first cold day of the year. As I sat pantless on my couch watching TV, the sun began to set, the temperature dropped and I noticed an unfamiliar chill in the air. Goosebumps appeared on my legs and I started hugging myself for warmth. This continued for half an hour, the concept of putting something warm on just a distant memory that my brain was yet to recall for me. But eventually the image of warm fleecy pants appeared in my mind’s eye and I dashed up the stairs in search of my favourite pair. Grey, fleecy and with elastic around the ankles to keep in the warmth. I get laughed at for wearing tracksuit pants with elastic around the ankles, but don’t knock it till you try it. While your ankles are feeling a little bit breezy, I will be reveling in my toasty lower legs.

Till tomorrow


**Updated. It’s gone back to being hot. What’s up Perth? So the tracksuit pants have been stashed again. Hopefully for not too long.
