I don't know where it came from or who started it but many young men in our area like to wear low hanging jeans that expose a lot more than is traditional.
This afternoon I was changing the oil in my truck and I saw a local kid walking by. He had been playing basketball up the hill and was wearing very low hanging shorts and had his shirt draped over his shoulder. He was walking like he was the coolest thing since James Dean and then disaster struck: his shorts fell down around his ankles exposing the fashionable boxer shorts that he was wearing.
I suppressed the urge to burst out laughing and didn't stare- except out of the corner of my eye: as he turned a peculiar shade of glowing red as he dove to retrieve his way-ward shorts.
I am not one to revel in the discomfort of others but the split-second transition from Joe-cool to Joe-mortified was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time and will keep me chuckling for days.
It appears that high fashion can be somewhat hazardous these days. We won't tell them that its a tad homo-erotic; that will be our little secret.
