Holes in the knees

Does everyone else's pants always wear out in the knees? I always just assumed that everyones pants wore out in the knees. After all, where else do you get that much wear? I never paid any attention to it when I was a kid but then once I got married I realized that Lisa's pants don't wear out in the knees. In my entire life I've only had one pair of pants that didn't wear out in the knee and that was in college. I was working with some acid in a lab and some of it must have spilled on the counter because a few days later I had some big holes right in the crotch of my pants where I would lean up against the counter. I only bring this up now because in the last three weeks I've had three pants develop a hole in the knee. I don't throw my pants away once they get a hole, I just use them for working around the house and in the yard but now I have about five pants for working around the house and only one pair that are good for wearing out of the house. Bummer.

Holes in the knees is always the reason I have to get rid of my jeans! In fact that is why I got more jeans for Christmas this year ... two of my other jeans developed knee holes.

Acid at your crotch??? Scary!

It's the same way for Dean too. He has quite the collection to wear at home now....

hmm thinking about it, I only had ONE pair of jeans that developed a hole in the knee. They were my favorite pair and I wore them ALL the time... maybe thats what did it? Who knows! Its funny though when I think about you, most of my memories you are wearing jeans with holes in them, haha.

Sarah is notorius for having holes in the knees of her jeans. In fact, you've even commented on it! She has them more than the boys.
