Yep, there is a Day for taking your Pants for a Walk, and it’s July 27th.
This is (of course) ridiculous.
Because it is about a thousand degrees outside today. So people who are going for walks are (mostly) wearing shorts.
Also, this could be seen as discrimination against skirts.
But the point is, how does one actually take pants for a walk? When we take the Puppy for a walk there is a leash involved. Do you have to put a leash (or at least a belt) on your pants? Or can you assume they’ll just go with you?
Do you have to be wearing the pants? Are you supposed to take ALL of your pants at once? Or do you take them sequentially? Or is taking one pair of pants symbolically sufficient?
There are a lot of unanswered questions here.
The e-card business is all kinds of excited about celebrating Take Your Pants for a Walk Day. But I’m not sure who you’re supposed to send the cards to exactly. Maybe I have stupid pants, because none of them know how to read. And they’d have to borrow my computer to read an e-card, so that seems a little silly.
Bottom line: Take yourself for a walk, because why not? If you want to take your pants with you, have a good time. If you want to leave your pants at home, that’s fine as long as you find another way to cover all the important bits.
Happy Take Your Pants for a Walk Day.
