Those Neon Pants

When we went to my sister's house on Friday, I wore a new pair of red pants because I thought they looked Christmassy. That is, they looked red to me, with a tinge of orange. When I saw the photos, I thought "Yikes! They look fluorescent."

They are Lands End corduroys in a soft knit fabric that's too comfortable to get rid of. I decided to dye them to be a less showy shade. So yesterday I used some black RIT dye to change them. They came out brown -- black takes two containers of dye and I only had one. But that's okay; I like brown slacks.
