My kingdom for some pants

I am not a wealthy man. I don't really have a kingdom, so paying $90 for a pair of jeans seems a mite extravagant. But I own zero pairs of pants that fit and that is the going rate for wheelchair jeans.

All my pants are too big so that they are not constricting when I sit in my wheelchair all day. But when I stand or transfer, I often slide right out of them. It also winds up being just a lot of unnecessary material in the front -- I get lost trying to go to the bathroom sometimes.

I could wear a belt, I suppose. I wear a belt for rock climbing. The problem is a belt requires coordination I don't have.

I may have to start wearing sweats 24/7. My brother would never talk to me again.

I prefer to call them comfy pants or house pants. They are quite comfy and I swear by them. Let me know if you want some.

Why do keep making me say it? Kilt. Kilt.

OK, I don't think I can wear comfy pants to work. They're no better than sweats, right?
My annoyance with pants has me not mocking you for the skirt suggestion. But what about the nine months when it is too cold for me to wear shorts? What then? Leg warmers? No, Matt needs pants. And a kilt for rock climbing? I don't think so.
I wish I even knew whether wheelchair clothes would help. I wonder if I can write them off? Hmmm.
