Lost in translation….

November 15, 2009

So, we went shopping for a new pair of jeans for Mac.  First of all, Mac hates to shop and would prefer you to just bring the clothes home. However, for this adventure, we required his presence.  In BsAs, there are more types (brands & styles) of jeans then I have ever seen.  EVERYONE wears jeans from the youngest of babies to grandparents.  I have never seen such a jean-wearing culture and by jeans, I mean, blue denim…not “jean style” pants.  Jeans are the pants of choice for an evening out for dinner, for church, and for hanging out. Khakis….nope….you stand out like a sore thumb.  The girls have some denim-colored leggings which seem to pass muster.  The really interesting thing about the jeans they make here is they are the softest jeans ever.  I am not a big fan of jeans because I rarely find a pair that are comfortable (too stiff) but here….there may be hope.  No wonder people live in them, they feel like a pair of pajama bottoms!

So, with all this in mind, Mac needed jeans…not sure where the pair he brought went (or did he actually pack them)?  We headed to the local mall and discovered they had a Levi’s store.  Great news for us..we know the brand, the sizing, etc. and met Mac’s approval.  He found a pair he liked and we left happy!

While Mac was perusing the selection, I stumbled upon a pair jeans with this tag attached.  It made me laugh and was a perfect example of  how things can be “lost in translation”.

Imagine following these washing instructions!
