random word of the day: FAT PANTS

random word of the day: FAT PANTS – wygodne spodnie na gumce, idealne, kiedy zjemy za dużo przy wigilijnym stole lub spodnie o kilka rozmiarów za duże niż te, które normalnie nosimy (stretchy pants with an elastic waist, perfect for binge eating around Christmas or pants that are a couple of sizes bigger than your regular size)

(1)  What are fat pants? Well, they're the pants you wear when you're fat. They're usually old, a few sizes too big, and comfortable. They're the pants you might wear for Thanksgiving dinner, or to a Chinese Buffet. I'm wearing my pair right now - an old pair of blue jeans fit for the waist of a snowman.

(2)     Hi Kathy, I haven't seen you wear those pants before.
Yeah, I put on a few pounds and everything else is too tight so I am wearing my fat pants.

(3) You know it’s a bad day when your fat pants feel tight.

(4) 'Tis the season for feasting and fat pants.

 I’m dreaming of a WIDE Christmas,
With every cookie that we frost.
Where the icing glistens
And people hasten
To gain back all the weight we’ve lost.
I’m dreaming of a WIDE Christmas
Where even “fat pants” do not fit.
Grab the scale and toss it outside,
And may all your Christmases be WIDE!
