The pants I climbed Cannon Mountain in appear to be irrevocably stained by the mud we encountered. I have washed them repeatedly, with direct applications of soap beforehand and special stain pre-treatment solutions, and long soaking, and nothing seems to want to budge these stains. I don't understand how I can have got into so much more mud than Eor did - his pants looked fine. They are darker in color, though.

I'm not sure what to do. These are the pants I usually wear all summer - they're some Old Navy flatfront khakis I've had for a few years, rather large, and if I cuff them up to just below my knees they make a fair approximation of coulottes. I could cut off the stained part and make them long shorts (with the risk that I might never hem them and I'd always look frayed - a very popular look, but not one that does well on someone my age, I think) or I could just continue to only wear them with the cuffs rolled up to hide the stains and save them for times I'm going to get dirty. Or I could give them to Goodwill and let someone else deal with them. I was planning on getting another pair of pants, anyway, just to have a change.

Oh - ETA - and I did go get my license renewed. :) It will come in the mail and there will be a new picture of me looking dorky to carry around in my wallet.

ETA: crap, it wouldn't let me post the poll in the same entry.
