As I'm in the midst of mending today, funny thoughts came to mind. Have you ever bent down and the seam in the back of your slacks/pants/shorts exploded? That happened to me at work once when I bent to get something underneath my machine, and heard a rrrrrrip in the back! I quickly looked around if anyone had seen it, or heard it! Thank goodness no one did! Whew! Fortunate for me I had my sweater hanging on the back of my chair and quickly tied the arms around my waste, leaving the rest of the sweater covering most of my back end part. Good thing people do wear their sweaters this way sometimes....maybe THAT'S how that fad got started.

When wearing dresses or skirts to work was the thing most women did, I had a hem come apart. Working in a Hardware store at the time, masking tape on the hem worked per-fec-tly!

Do you have a similar story?
