Well, I downsized since the other shorts were huge and I had to take them up a lot plus put darts in, so these fit a little snug. He's making a pitiful face here because I wouldn't let him point the Nerf gun at me for the picture.
They fit perfectly everywhere except they look snug in the rear, but he says they feel fine.
So here's what's special about this pair. See the nice cargo pocket? He picked out the webbing to go with the fabric - good job!
Oh, when you look down at them a certain way there seems to be something wrong...did I forget to stitch the flap down?
No, it's a "secret" pocket!
Dean's cargo shorts have this extra pocket, so I studied them and came up with a way to add it to Lucas's shorts. It just entailed an extra facing cut and stitched under the real pocket, but I figured it out on my own and I so proud of myself!!! (Hands clapping and big grin on my face - picture the Sonic commercial with the guy saying "I'm BIG boy! I'm BIG boy!")
Now Lucas and I are off to a party. Have you ever been invited to a party and asked if you could bring something? The answer is usually either, "No, just yourself," or maybe, "You could bring a dessert." Well, the answer I got was, "Yeah, you know, can you bring some pizza toppings? We're going to make pizzas and we have the dough, but if you could bring the cheese and some toppings that would be great!" Uh, okay. So I call from the grocery store and say I have cheese, pepperoni, and ham, but how much should I bring. I'm told, "Well, we're making 24 pizzas, so bring lots of mozzarella, parmesan, pepperoni and ham, and we need marinara sauce too. We've got the dough plus beer and wine." (We'll just pause here for a minute so you can let that sink in and think of what you would say in this situation. Keep in mind I'm not hosting this party.)
So I repeated back, "You're making 24 pizzas?"
"Well, yeah, but they're small pizzas, like 6 inches or something."
So I'm carrying $50 worth of toppings over to the party (guess I shouldn't be late!), but I'd really like to bring any extras back home with me. That's rude, though, isn't i; like taking wine over and then carrying it back home with you. Anybody been in a similar situation? Suggestions for how I should have handled it?
