This has almost nothing to do with guitars

Today, before work, I got a new pair of shorts from Wal-Mart. It gets hot down here in summer, and I decided to go for shorts. I don't know the size of the old shorts, but another pair on my drawer had a 48 waist.

The pair I got have a 42 waist. When I changed, I unhooked my belt and let 'em drop. Didn't need to unbutton or anything.

This makes me happy.

This is not a fast weight drop — the old shorts are 10 years old, easy — but it is ongoing. I can't remember if it was last year or the year before where I hit 44, which was the magic number that meant I no longer had to shop in the Big-and-Tall store to get pants. (The line is that fat people go to Wal-Mart, but you cannot find pants with more than a 44 waist there. Trust me. I know this.)

The only guitar-related thing about this that comes to mind is, as my weight and girth drops, I will have to become more and more worried about belt buckle rash on the back of my guitars. As is, there's a substantial buffer created by my gut.

So, yay me. I might go out and get a chocolate shake to celebrate!
