Blue Moon…….

Ok, I know I am going to sound like an old dried up prude here, but I have to get this out of my system. I was in the grocery store on Friday doing my Shabbat shopping, and there was this young lad, 20 maybe, creating an organized pile of sacks of potatoes. As I passed he bent down to pick up a sack.  His pants were hanging halfway down his thighs, exposing his grey Calvin Klein’s for all to see. I guess I should be thankful that he was wearing underwear? But what was the point of wearing pants, when they covered nothing? He was even wearing a belt on his pants, but obviously a severely defective one. He isn’t the first young dude I have seen with this affliction, but each time I have to fight the terrible temptation of just yanking oh so very gently on the pants so that they puddle to the floor. After all they are only kept up by the sheer force of willpower. There is new legislation in a city in America, I forget which, which fines you $20 if you show 3 inches of skin or underwear where your pants should be. I wonder if they use this money to fix the sidewalk cracks ;-)


So people, I ask you to join me, next time you see the underwear moon, yank it just a little, just for me…please?

    You don’t understand: you buy the trousers and the panties as a set, so that you will see the panties well. And the panties in general have a good elastic, so that they will not come down.

    Why are you against new fashion?

    I usually find they look ridiculous in those baggy pants.

    Whenever I have such thoughts I think I’m getting old, but in all honesty, I don’t get it. I love fashion, but that’s not fashion, that’s sheer old stupidity – oh crap, showing my age again.

    When I see actual crack, I can never resist whispering “Crack kills!” as I pass by ;)

    LOZ – oy vey now that would have been a pic

    shoshi – fashion? ok…i guess it takes all sorts. (mind you madonnas conical bra was fashion too….shudder)

    ilana davita- do you think they even notice how they look?

    chanief – crack kills? I LOVE IT!!

    So it’s not the kind of fashion you like. In general, I dislike fashion, but I find the pants-baggy trousers set quite nice.

    I was going to comment about this boy who works at my local $5 pizza place, serving customers with his pants where pants shouldn’t be… but everything I wrote sounded either sordid (I’m old enough to be his mother and why was I looking anyway?) or crusty (darned kids, snortle, snortle).

    Instead this is what I’ve told my daughter & her friends:

    Not in my house!

    Do what you feel you need to do to make whatever fashion statement you need to make, but when you cross the threshold into my home, make sure your crack is checked at the door!!

    I think it has nothing to do with age, it’s just a sensitivity issue. I agree with you that the look doesn’t look right. Whenever I see pants like that I always wonder how they walk like that.
