scaredy mouse

I have weird fears like i'm sort of afraid of animals (oh the irony of being nicknamed mouse) - i just don't trust anything with fur that moves and you can't fully communicate with. I know, i'm weird. and clowns....they freak me the f*ck out. I think that stems from the summer I worked at an outdoor pool at the City of Toronto and read Stephen King's IT....not terribly bright working around drains and sewers all day and reading about a murderous clown that pops out of one. YEESH. Then there's sad stuff like being a disappointment, failure, blah blah, sob sob. But my strangest fear of all...white pants. Specifically, my ass in white pants. The two will never go together in harmony. I was reminded of it today as I saw a woman walking down yonge st. in these amazing cargo/parachute capris - in white of course. I sooo envied them. But I could never carry em off. Sometimes while shopping I get up the courage to give it a go, but alas, the dimpled ass nixes the deal. Two weeks ago it was a cute little white skirt instead. Nope, that didn't work either. I just don't have the courage to reveal cottage cheese and play "what colour gitch is Marie wearing today?" with the entire downtown core (I already play that with my office from time to time without realizing it, much to my embarrassment). I always thought if i just "lost a little weight," I could wear white pants. But I go try them on and I still don't have the confidence to pull them off. I see women off all shapes and sizes pull it off every day (granted, some should NOT be wearing em EVER or at least be choosing other styles and for the love of pete, PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR UNDERWEAR CHOICE!!!), so why the hell can't i?!?! Today the lady sooo could. She was super fit and tanned. They really suited her. Makes me wonder though - is it really a confidence that's required to pull these things off or are some of us really not built to wear white pants...

But white pants are so impractical! They get dirty.

I also have cottage cheese thighs so I would never wear them, either. However, I always tell myself that the real reason is because they are impractical. Give it a try! :-P

*laughs* I am scared of clowns too!!!! I can't even look at them...or puppets...or ventriloquist dummies...*shudder*

Funny that you write this post, *I* am wearing white pants today!! Well, white cropped pants...I have NEVER found ones that didn't show the dimplies, but these don't!!! That's why I had to buy them...and they are double lined at the top so you can't see my skivvies!!!

I tell ya though, I am afraid to touch anything because I swear to god they will be covered in miscellaneous stuff by the end of the day!

I am beginning to think that everyone of our age rante watched "IT" when they were too young - me included! I mean where the hell were our parents during that time when they showed that movie on TV, which, if I remember correctly, was like 6 hours long! I can't even look at a clown without thinking of the damn eerie sewers!

I feel the same why about my dimply butt and thighs. I do have a pair of white capri "jogging type" of pants that I bought last weekend at Bluenotes and they aren't too bad. I've come to realize the trick is in the material that they are made of. If they are super thin, then no friggin way are they going to be covering this behind, but if the material is thick and tough enough, they sometimes can be pulled off.

Ok...on the animals...I usually like them more then people. I trust them and I like that they level with you. If they love you, they show it. If they don't they bite you. And they always forgive you. They also don't care if you have too much junk in the trunk.

On the clowns...yep I agree. Creepy.

On the white pants...I don't have any but often wish I did. I think as long as they are not tight you would be fine. Tight white pants look nasty on everyone. You should by some normal fitting ones and sister...rock those damn pants!

Ha, ha... You said gitch! I love that word. And as far as the pants, just do it. Get a great pair and work 'em!

I have white pants :o) BUT they are made of a thicker material... almost like white jeans. That sound really 80s but they are pretty sylin! There is no chance of any dimples showing through!

I got them at Smart Set and they're grrreeeeat!

I've come to accept that I will never be able to wear white pants...I even stay away from light beige pants or anything very light. It's a phobia that is ingrained into our minds when we are overweight but I don't think it'll ever let it go. Even though the pants may be a size 7, if they are white, it's a no go for me.
Sigh........

I so long to wear white pants too.. I can do white shorts but not white pants - i wonder why that is...

And I am with you on the animals.. an animal lover I am not... deathly afraid of birds and dogs!!!

how about white cargos? I used to have a pair back in 1999 before I gained most of my weight and they didn't show a thing (except a bit of a panty line - I always wore white panties, have no fear).... I think the problem with most people is that they buy the style of fitted pants in white and then it shows off every bump. Try a looser fit. Cargoes are a dream when you are having a fat day, that's for sure. I have a couple pairs that are so big they fall off of me. I wear those around the house and feel incredibly slender in them! hahah

About the animals - I have never heard anyone say that before! I too prefer animals to people on any given day..... hahahah
