Home Ec Check

Earlier this week I popped a button on a ratty pair of shorts I wear during my summertime morning walks. It was another example of a troubling but well-known phenomenon–pants manufacturers intentionally using flimsy, defective thread to secure waistline buttons on male trousers. It’s nefarious!

Fortunately, Kish rode to the rescue. Drawing upon her high school home economics class training, she took out needle and more durable thread to firmly anchor the waistline button and (hopefully) prevent a recurrence of the embarrassing pop off scenario.

Home economics was a pretty useful, practical class when you think about it. Do schools still offer home ec courses?
