Today I purchased impossible pants. They are not the size I wear, but the size I want to wear. And these are not just any pants. They are black with gold, sparkly stars. These are the pants of legends and of dreams. These are a size 16. Not a women's size 16, a regular size 16. At this juncture, I wear a 20W (sometimes snugly, and sometimes loosely). I also bought the only shirt I could find at Wal-mart to match. It is juniors size 2XL. I'll be honest in saying that this outfit is my unicorn. I want to believe in it, but for today it seems like a fairy tale mystically grazing under a magical rainbow. But, I did by them, so somewhere deep deep down, I believe. Like the little engine that could I think I can, I think I can...Here's to all my friends. Believe in your impossible pants (whatever they might be).
