True story: one Thanksgiving day when I was in my upper-teens, I was at my Grandmother Susans’ house for the big lunch. I love that meal! I just ate and ate and ate.
After the meal I went over to the couch to sit down. I leaned back and stretched. As I stretched, the button to my pants not only popped off, but flew several feet across the room!
I’ve only seen it happen in cartoons but there I was living it!
Lesson learned: wear elastic waist bands.
