A first at the Doctor's Office


During the pandemic shutdown, I saw these leggings on sale at Wal-Mart and bought them. they have not been worn until my visit to the Eye Doc for my annual eye exam.

They are smut black and the designs are shiny gold.

I tried everything to get a photo of them as they really look.

I laid them on the bed, bent over upside down and took my legs, sat down and took my knees.
Every one of these photos came out with white on the black.
I played with them in PicMonkey and managed to get them a little gold.
There is a purpose of showing them to you.
As I sat in the chair, the doctor rolled his chair up to look deep in my eyes, and glanced down and said

Wow! Cool Pants!  
I replied not only are they cool pants, but they are COOL for Florida weather.

I have never in my 76 years had a doctor comment on my clothing. 
then I pondered on the way home, was it a compliment? 
Did he mean what is an old lady doing in gold shiny pants? 
He did NOT say he liked them, just that they are cool. 
Since cool is no longer a word in use, he must be old and have poor eye sight.

And now that I have seen my legs and knees below, I am wondering if I will ever wear them again.
Also wondering why I bought them.
 Blame the Pandemic

If you noticed I am barefoot, I did wear croc sandals to the office. 😁😁
I wanted to wear my gold sandals with them, the ones I bought to go with my black with gold hearts leggins 2 years ago.  It was a no go, my toe still hurts from when the can fell off the counter on my toe, I can't wear them, because they have a toe sheath that hurts the toe. Do NOT fret. My spread is not gold sparkles, I added the back ground in PicMonkey

The pants ARE cool, that is exactly what I would have said. I think the doctor meant exactly that, with no other meaning to be read into it. I love them. Every time I go in W.M., I look at the clothes and leggins. They have never had these. If they did, I would have bought them immediatly. I guess it is too late to expect to see them now, but I might look at their website. What is wrong with your legs and knees in the leggins??? They look really good, and I see nothing wrong. Plus you look skinny in them, which you are. They are very becoming! If you don't want to wear them anymore, send thm to ME!!

I love them! ❤️

We love them too - and we love them on you.

I like solid colored for myself...but you can definitely pull it off (no pun intended). Both my kids say to me "dress your age" when I wear 'em...what the heck does that mean?!?!!

They're comfortable, and I like comfort.

Ann said...

I agree with the doctor, those are cool pants. I'm not brave enough to wear ones like that when I go out. I always put on solid colored ones when I leave the house. The fun print ones only get worn at home.

I am a leggings gal and had I seen these I too would have bought them - they are adorable! The doc had to say 'cool' cuz if he'd said 'adorable' it might have sent entirely the wrong message!!! YAM xx

I'm so glad that doctor commented! 'Cool' is perfect -- not overly personal like Yamini just said. Now I'm wondering if this is something they touch on in medical school -- how to develop repport with a patient and what words are safe. (Ya, I'm over-thinking again.)

LOVE the pants, and I'd wear them in a heartbeat -- if my legs were slim like yours.

They are cute...COOL! You should keep them and wear them all the time! heehee!

I LOVE them and I think the doctor did too!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Mind's Eye said...

I agree they are cool and I like them. LOL
It felt good to 'get dressed up' again didn't it
Hugs cecilia

Linda said...

Maybe Ginny and I will fight over who gets them if you don’t want them!!!! Thanks to you I’m now a legging gal! But I’ve not seen a Walmart here in Texas with all the COOL ones YOU find!
Did you pass your eye exam?
I love it when doctors act like real people! I love them even more when they treat patients like real people!

I think "cool" was a compliment! He didn't have to say anything. They look wonderful on you.

photowannabe said...

Well I like them and I think they are cool too.
And so your week begins...thinking of you

DeniseinVA said...

I would take it as a compliment. They do in fact look very cool! I have to look into this PicMonkey.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I say, if you like those pants and they make you feel good, keep on wearing them.

diane b said...

I think it was a compliment. They are cool pants. keep on wearing them.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

You are definitely golden, Sandra, wearing those leggings or not. They were “way cool” in my opinion, so if you like them, keep on wearing them.

Tigger said...

Crikey I know what you mean about concern for the pet locked indoors. Lets hope the hype is right and with 2 vaccines even if you catch it you won't be seriously ill. Sensible measures but sobering to think about.

Olde Dame Holly said...

He WAS complimenting them, I think. They are very eye-catching! Lovely! Keep wearing them! Don't you think they will just look super this fall? And into winter, too! I think you could dress as a very interesting witch with those leggings as the basis of your outfit, for a Halloween lunch or get-together!

I agree with the doc, they are cool pants. I like them, I wear the leggings too. They are so comfy. Take care, have a happy day!

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

I love the pants. Cool is still in.

Catherine - Mixed Media Artist said...

definitely it was a compliment - get whatever negativity you had on his words, right out of your head. They look stunning...

Ida said...

I think they are pretty cool and I know my granddaughter Coleen would love them. She loves things that are shiny and has a pair quite similar to yours. One should have fun with how they dress.
