Duct Tape to the Rescue

New Pants
Originally uploaded by bcmom.
About a year ago I bought myself some leather pants. Now, if you've never bought leather pants, you don't know that they come extra long so you can get them cut off to the right length. I was thinking I could just cut them off, but then realized that there are four seams down each leg. What's going to keep those seams from unraveling once I cut through them? A friend of mine suggested super glue, which might work. I asked when I went into Wilson's last time I was at the mall. I always walk in there just to breathe the leather smell, so we were in there anyway. The employee I talked to suggested taking it somewhere and having a professional do it. Whatever I really need to do about the pants, I haven't done it yet.

But remember I told you we are going to the REO concert? It's tomorrow night. Now, if there's ever a time to wear leather pants, it's to a concert, right? So today I put the pants on, figured about how much shorter they should be, turned them up, and used Duct tape to hold them up - a piece on each seam.

See, Duct tape is good for everything!
