a short story

Today is my last post in the short-lived and unplanned series of “maternity things I like to wear when I’m not pregnant.”

These shorts. I bought them when I was newly pregnant thinking I’m a genius! It will be mostly hot when I’m huge so I will live in these. Turns out it was mostly hot when I was huge but I could not pull them off (too much midsection with too much leg). So then I was like, I’m an idiot! I splurged on this printed pair and a black pair and it was all for nothing. Then two seconds after I gave birth and my middle was not as pronounced, I slide into these shorts and they’ve been my go-to since. And they will probably stay that way indefinitely because who has ever had a problem with elastic waist bands? No one.

(Or is this a post for a series called “how many blue things can I wear at once?”)
