Say It Ain't So

I saw a man going into the hardware store last week wearing *GASP* ZUBAZ!! They were bright orange and patterned loudly. I immediately began laughing hysterically, thinking, I cannot believe that someone still owns a pair of those. (For those of you who don't know what they are or are too young/old to have been a part of this fashion trend, they are loose-fitting comfy pants. But not cute. Think baggy p.j. bottoms in a zebra pattern. Or whatever pattern shows your style, if you could call it that. The jocks in high school wore know who you are :). You can check them out on Wikipedia or I was not able to figure out how to load a pic for this post.)

Fast forward to a few minutes ago. I was unloading the dishwasher and listening to the Drivetime Diva's when I heard them talking about Zubaz. I turned up the volume and was shocked to learn that Zubaz are "making a comeback". I could not believe that this could be true. But apparently you can find them at Rosedale shopping center. And other places.

I don't know what this world is coming to. Is the American economy so bad that we have to resort to buying strange clothing and actually wearing it in public? Just to be comfy and home-y wherever we go? I have had enough difficulty with the Crocs trend and usually only let my kids wear theirs in the garden and yard. But Zubaz?

Maybe Zubaz and Crocs would be the perfect Christmas present. Just not for me. I may not be a fashionista, but I do have some pride, lol.

I keep hearing the Justin Timberlake song in my head, but with a new lyric..."I'm bringing Zubaz back...".

If you are a proud owner of a pair of Zubaz, I would love to hear your story. Or better yet, see a picture.

I am proud to say that I never owned a pair...did any girls, or were they a guy thing? I think a guy I dated in high school had a pair. Ick.
