Mariachi Mama

I bought some black yoga pants on eBay for 99 cents! I was feeling pretty proud of myself. I didn't look at the auction description too closely, though, and I noticed after I bid there were gold studs running down the length of the pants on the outside of the legs.

Undeterred, I put them on this afternoon for the first time. I wasn't sure how I felt about the studs, but the pants fit, they were comfortable, and I knew I wouldn't be going anywhere, anyway.

Then JP came home and saw the pants.

"What, are you in a mariachi band now?" he asked.

"What? What are you talking about?"

"Your pants."

"These are not mariachi pants!" I exclaimed. But the seed had been planted. Fear grabbed my heart.

During our ritual after-dinner walk with Fly -- when Fly does his ritual removal of his socks so I end up walking the neighborhood with a tiny pair of dirty socks in my hand -- JP started up again.

"All you need are a sequined vest and a big sombrero."

"Would you stop with the mariachi stuff?!" I smacked his arm with the dirty socks.

Quoting Nacho Libre, JP said, "When you are a mom, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. Just for fun."

(Which has nothing to do with mariachis.)

I really don't think my pants look this bad....

That was wonderful. You did a great job. Sometimes husbands say things that they need dirty socks thrown at them.

I hope you have a great Valentine's Day together.

Ok you have to post a picture of them now. Inquiring minds must see them so that we can judge for ourselves.
