shrinking jeansIt is coming towards that time of the year when an annual scientific mystery leaves me puzzled as to what can happen inside a wardrobe over the cold winter months. In recent years this puzzling mystery had increased in ferocity and is starting to give me strange phobias about leaving the bitterness of winter and wanting to enjoy the pleasures of spring.

There is just no rational explanation as to why all my precious Levi’s reduce in waist line capacity over winter and induce an extremely uncomfortable standing start to the warmer temperatures. Sitting during the first weeks of spring is next to impossible. The same affliction affects my wardrobe of trendy short sleeved shirts which all suffer from a mystery winter induced movement of buttons. Particularly in the midriff area. Belts are even affected, which is a surprise, as they are made of leather and I thought they would survive this malady.

The strange part about this mystery is that socks and shoes seem to be immune as are hats and sloppy old cardigans.

Oh well, what is life without a few little mysteries? I am sure my Levi’s (with the unbuttoned top button) won’t be noticed if I keep wearing my sloppy old cardigan buttoned up tight!
