Shorts... in a Pinch.

I posted this on FB...but figured it was blogworthy too! I saw this at the Post Office today, and of course HAD to snag a pic!


How to create Shorts, in a pinch!
1 - roll up cotton pants to knee-length or above
2 - secure in place with clothes pins.

Tip: for extra cooling comfort, shove knee-high hosiery down around ankles.

If you lived in Arkansas I would swear that this is my motherinlaw or my bosses wife. Well, maybe not my bosses wife, because at 82, a girl has to have a tan, therefore she's sprays her tan on and misses a spot or two. Her legs are always a lovely burnt orange.

Wow, and I thought Kyle cutting off the bottom of his jeans to make shorts but saving the end pieces and using safety pins to keep them on as pants was cheesy.

This is BY FAR my most favorite picture you have ever taken!!! I am still laughing!! You should start a PPO (People of the Post Office) website now. I am sure it would be a hit!

Loved this photo! It makes you wonder why people go out dressed like this!
Yes, why the knee-highs too? I only wear socks with pants, and sometimes with a little cotton dress, but this woman can't seem to make up her mind what to do....hence the clothes pegs I expect!

This makes me laugh because it is something I do. Not the shorts, which are really quite creative and interesting, but take a pic of an actual person wearing or doing something funny!!! I never thought of holding anything on my body up with cloths pins. I may have to add a few to my bag. I have safety pins so it just makes sense.
