That's what I am. A big, fat zero. Only I'm not big and fat but I am a zero. A zero in size I mean. When did zero even become a size?
I have been looking for pants that fit and was having a difficult time finding any. It seems that my normal size 4 was just a little too big. I like Dockers and I like to buy my Dockers at Kohls but the smallest size they ever have is four. So, I asked one of the attorneys at work who is smaller than me (I thought) where she buys her pants. She said The Gap and Ann Taylor.
So, I journey to Paradise Valley Mall yesterday to try on pants at The Gap and Ann Taylor. I tried on about 8 pairs of pants at The Gap, all size four and I was swimming in them. Didn't even think to try on anything else. Left there and went to Ann Taylor that was a bit too costly for me. Wandered down to Ann Taylor Loft and decided to try on size zero, petite. Voila! They fit in the waist as well as the length. I was just amazed to think that I was now a size zero.
I ask again; when did zero become a size? Are the retail marketers trying to fool us into thinking we are several sizes smaller than we actually are?
And no, I am not anorexic like the models and actresses in this video clip
