April 19, 2011When I was growing up, we had a kid at Mohave County Union High School nicknamed "Low Pants" Vance. He was a bad boy. I wonder if low pants have always meant rebellion? Did some of Geronimo's warriors swagger around with low slung breech cloths? Probably. I know my own son, Thomas Charles, went through a gangsta stage and wore his pants down around, well, you know:
Last weekend, when I was in LA, Deena and Mike took me to the legendary Comedy Store in Hollywood. One of the comics, Jeff Altman, did a very funny bit about creeping pants going in the other direction when we get older. "My dad's pants kept creeping up on him. By 65 he was just a pair of pants and a head. He had to unzip his pants to drive."
"I'm there, Man."
