Travel Journal


(Friday 8 May 2015) by Rick Clot
I bought two pairs of jean shorts at Walmart yesterday and unlike my wife I actually tried them on at the store before buying them. My wife, on the other hand, waits till she gets home to try on any clothing purchases. The reason for this should be obvious. If the clothes don't fit it gives her an excuse to go back to the store. So I take the shorts into the fitting room and to my surprise I actually fit into a 38" waist. All this time I'm thinking I need a 40" but the 38" fit perfectly. That was the good news. The bad news is they had a 15" inseam which, for the measurement challenged folks, myself included, put the bottom of the jeans below my knees. There were no other jean shorts anywhere to be found in the entire store with a shorter inseam. That wouldn't have been all that bad if I was trying to join a Mexican gang. I think I'll change my name to Ricardo, get some tats (street lingo for tattoos) and a can of spray paint and do some graffiti on a railroad boxcar just for fun.

Until Next Time,
Taco time in Surprise,
