My jeans have seen better days. They must have recently reached a critical failure point. Just days ago I noticed the denim was thinning on my left knee. Then a small hole appeared. I reasoned that they'd hold up until I can get some shopping done in Atlanta in a week or two. But nooo, the next day the gap widened. This is mostly owed to the fact that I occasionally fold my leg under me when I sit. This agitates the pants; they've had enough. The hole as of this morning was about an inch across. As of tonight, the rip is 4 inches across. By tomorrow I fully expect to be wearing capris, at least on the left leg.
