What are "Fancy Sweatpants" you ask? How can sweatpants be any kind of fancy? Well, when you spend about 80% of you days in sweatpants you have to differentiate.
It's really a very simple and probably pathetic story but obviously I am going to tell it.
Here is how it went:
Dave (the boyfriend): Hey, want to go get some groceries?
Tanya (that is me): I don't know, I guess so.
Dave: Okay so let's go.
Tanya: *looks at pants* Okay but hold on, let me change into my fancy sweatpants.
Dave: *raises eyebrow*
Dave: What are fancy sweatpants?
Tanya: Well these pants are my regular sweatpants *points at $8 mens sweatpants from Zellers* And these sweatpants *holds up fancy sweatpants* are my FANCY SWEATPANTS!
Dave: *rolls eyes*
And that is how it happened. That is the exciting story for which I will name my memoire. Such an anti-climax right? But really that moment is fairly defining moment in that I realized how sad it was that I literally thought of my sweatpants as fancy. Because I seriously do.
I mean, maybe because they are literally the most expensive article of clothing I own to this day. They are Roots sweatpants, they cost like in the upwards of $70. I don't own any other pants that cost anywhere close to that. So yes. They are god damn fancy as hell.
This is a lot of money to spend on a pair of pants that are supposed to only be worn in your house. Granted, I don't only just wear them in my house I wear them everywhere that its considered moderately acceptable to do so. Grocery stores, friends houses, Costco...restaurants...
Okay so maybe I wear my sweatpants more than socially acceptable but in my defence, as previously mentioned, they cost more than any other article of clothing so I am just trying to be fancy.
You know what, I thought this story would be funnier. I guess I am not as funny as I thought. Way to go internet, you are supposed to build my confidence not destroy me before I am any kind of anything.
