I already look lumpy.

I wore men's dress pants and jeans for years. Great pockets, and the hips and seat fit me better. They also came in longer lengths, which women's did not at the time.

On me, the waist in men's jeans is always way too big, if I can fit my hips into them. But, after a few washings and dryings (preferably in the dryer) and stretchings by wearing, they fit fine.

I have big hip bones, really. I had 37" hips when I was underweight and I'm only 5'4".

Upside, both cars have new batteries, so we won't have to deal with this again for a while.
Buy a second set of jumper cables, splurge and get a really nice set! I have never had to jump my own car, but everyone at work knows I have them and we've jumped numerous cars over the years to their owners relief!

Remember the nice white uniforms nurses had to wear? They always had deep side pockets so you could carry your scissors around with you. And they weren't a short pair either.

No, I don't remember them, I have never worn a white nursing dress or skirt. I have worn white tops and pants. I won't buy anything for work that does not have deep pockets. Where else am I supposed to carry my screwdriver, scissors, etc, etc.

I'm built like a 12 year old boy. No hips or butt, with big shoulders, and 5'9". Trying to find a size 4 pant in women's long is a challenge! Most clothing places figure tall gals are at least size 10, which would fall right off. Embarrassing in public.... Thank you Eddie Bauer, they have right sizes.

It's one of those things that you don't think about buying until you need them! LOL

Weird thing about living in a warmer climate, I've noticed that just about every one of my car batteries go without warning, works one day, the next day, not even keyless entry will work. I've been told that warmer climates are worse on batteries than cold, not sure how much truth is in that though.
