Once when I was in college, I was at the high tide of a laundry pile and completely desperate for an outfit. Buried in my drawer, was a pair of hand-me-down off-white corduroy pants, you know the kind with pleats in the front, that would make Kate Moss look obese. I slid them on, silently praying not to run into the hot guy I had a crush on. Well, it just so happens, that I did run into him and--get this!--he thought my cords were, ok, are you ready for this? He thought they were s-e-x-x-y. At the time, I thought he was kidding, as it was hard to take almost anything he said seriously and eventually I got rid of the pants. Years later, I was telling my hubby this story and he agreed with the then-crush. What? Cords are hot? Really? Cuz, like, I don't feel very hot in them. Maybe it's the extra millimeters of fabric on the my thighs (where I least need bulk) or maybe it's the swishing sound they make when I walk. Everything about cords scream FRUMPY! But maybe I'm wrong. Are cords hot?
