This is a short post, but it's one I didn't want to just leave in the Draft section of my blog like so many others. Sigh. There's just not enough time in the day.
But anyway, I wanted to post about the pair of shorts you see below. Back when I was an undergrad at Auburn, I got these shorts in a race packet--for free. This was probably 15 years ago (now I feel old!). The shorts were from Kinnucan's, a local sporting goods store in Auburn. I remember liking to "window shop" in Kinnucan's but rarely buying anything. So I loved these shorts.
I wore them all the time to run in (yes, they were cotton, but I didn't know any better). After I graduated, they eventually became pajama bottoms in the summer and then, strangely, maternity pants. As you can imagine, the waistband got stretched out beyond belief and the elastic quit being elastic. I knew it was time to throw them out, but I just couldn't. So I did what Rick does when he decides to throw something sentimental away---I took a picture of them and them tossed them away. And then I shared their story with you all.
