Remebering a Friend

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today, to mourn a dear friend, my favorite pair of jeans. They have served me well, with T-shirts, sweat shirts, and blouses; flip-flops, gym shoes and heels, taking me from grungy to casual, as well as some what dressed up.

Favorite jeans have labored in the trenches of Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Never complaining, but always fulfilling the duty at hand, they will be missed.

Favorite finally gave in to countless washings, tours of duty through the dryer, and iron torture. They were faithful to the very end, succumbing to frayed hems, torn pockets, and ripped inseams.

Favorite will pass on the torch to new, to serve in many capacities, until raggedness.

Please bow for a moment of silence. . .

(To the tune of Taps)

Day is done, gone the jeans,
From the closet,
From the hanger,
From my butt;
All is well, safely rest,
In the trash.

I feel your pain. My favourite pair of jeans are due to be laid to rest shortly, but I can't quite bear to let them go yet. I'm wearing them right now, hoping that the worn parts along the inner seam will last another day (and that no-one will notice the daylight you can see through them). I need to go shopping for a replacement pair, but that will only seal the fate of these ones. (Also, I'd like to buy a smaller pair, and I'm not ready for that yet!)

Bless your heart--I have a favorite pair of jeans that I can't bear to part with. I still get them out and look at them, but they are totally unwearable. I wish your jeans Godspeed.

Ah my favorite pair of jeans...I only wear them from fall to winter..ocassionally in the spring. They are a pair of dark wash trouser jeans that can be worn up or down.

I am not positive what I would do if I had to throw them away. You gave a very fitting tribute and I'm sure they would be proud.
