Have you noticed that the fashion in teenage girl pants imitates your old plumber? My last trip to Starbucks brought me into contact with a group of girls with gravity defying low rise pants and shorts. I thought of the old plumber bending over the sink, especially since some of the young ones were not really thin enough for the style. Here is a tip. If your tummy hangs over the top of the shorts, you don't look that good in them.
