Houston, we have a problem

Posted by andrea in: Misc. life

Oooooh dear. My test pants aren’t fitting very well. I’m not kidding.
Eating chips and potatoes and bread and butter and ice cream and ribs (yes, that’s in one sitting) at my in-laws will do that to me… POOF … blow me up like a balloon. And i’m not referring to any of the GOOD parts that could stand to use a little blowing up.

And please tell me that I’m not the only one with test pants.

[EDIT for clarification] – test pants are those one pair of pants that indicate, um, expanding girth. There I said it. I guess I’m the only one. Poop.

I have test pants. Out of fashion now and wouldn’t wear them but kept for the sole purpose of monitoring the bloat situation.

Ahhhhh, okay. Yes, I have a pair of those. In fact, I’m wearing them right now!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (24) and Sarah (22). During the day I work as a writer at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
