When I got back from my photo trip to the gardens on Monday I noticed a deep black stain on the left leg of my khaki slacks - it looked like tar or grease. I assumed I had brushed up against something in the gardens.
I freakin' killed myself getting the stain out - the only reason I have a photo of the results is that my niece refused to believe I got it out so I e-mailed her proof.
Not perfect but good enough. I only wear them to do errands or to schlep around taking photos. Plus it's nearly the end of summer and next summer I will be a size 6 once authorization for my full body transplant comes thru.
I wore the same slacks Wednesday. And look ...
I checked the car, the bottom of my shoe (sometimes I rub my leg while sitting at red lights) and everywhere else I could think of. No tar. No grease. No paint.
Last night I wore my chambray capris (so very Holly Go Lightly) and when I got home ...
All stains are in the exact same spot on the left pants leg.
Please - whoever is trying to send me a message - just call, e-mail, tweet.
