So I entered my college bookstore in search of a remedy. You see, my stiff jeans were loosening their grip upon my waist this morning. So to prevent my own pants from pantsing me, to prevent them from sliding to the floor, I set out to purchase a belt. I was glad to have found one.
I grabbed it and a few seconds later, I was blown away. Not because it suddenly spoke some wisdom or because it magically adjusted to my waist just right...Though with what I'm about to reveal, you may wonder if this belt has some magic ability. You see, I was blown away because when I went to the counter, I was told that this stretch of cloth and metal cost $48!!!! Did belts become an endangered species!?
I could have smiled as I told the cashier, "nevermind," but I was still quite aware of my drooping jeans. So I smiled and paid for the belt. I teared up a bit after my purchase, wondering, "Has my bank account now gone the way of the dinosaurs: Extinct?"
This will be the last time that I forget to put on my belt before leaving the house.
