Finding PANTS in February shouldn't be this difficult

Dear Head-Muckety-Muck at Target:

I realize that the retail market is quite competitive and that it's imperative for you to be the "first on the scene" with next season's clothing. If, for instance, Wal-Mart puts out their summer swimsuits before you do, then Wal-Mart gets a jump on the money-making, right? I also understand that, during this boring, dreary, cold time of year, many people like to escape to warmer climates.....climates that might be suitable for shorts, t-shirts, and swimsuits.

I, however, am an average Momma with no intention to start my summer shopping. And we have a noticeable lack of warm weather travel plans. Plus, I have an almost-10-year-old boy who does weird things like grow all the time. I know, it's inconvenient. For you AND me.

All I ask is that you keep some pants in stock. More specifically, the thin, elastic waist pants that basketball players wear during warm-up (not the ones that go swish-swish when you walk...I think those are called track pants? Actually, in our house, they're called swishy pants.) I hate to be a pest, but could they be either black, navy blue, or dark grey? And size large? Today, I was oh so lucky to find 5 pairs of Celtic green beauties, sized XS. I left them on the rack so the family of leprechauns behind me could have them.

Thank you for your time.
Mama Cas

Dear Son,

Please refrain from growing until May. You're making my life difficult.



  1. If I could just piggy back a request to the-powers-that-be that the knees of said pants actually live as long as the rest of the legs?

    That'd be awesome. My sons knees are getting very cold up here in Canada.

    Thank you.

  2. I'll get right on that, Ms. Irritable.

  3. Dude. WTF IS UP WITH THAT? I thought I was THE ONLY ONE who had that problem, yo! Bwahahahaha! I was seriously all, "I can't tell anyone because they'll think I'm a doofus."


I'd love to hear from you!
