WIP, a win, and a whine

We won our softball game last night; we are now two out of five. We're having a blast even if we're not that good.
As promised, here is a picture of my WIP as of this morning.
We got into town a little early last night before our game, so we stopped by Academy Sports to get DH a new pair of wind pants. He's been wearing his snow skiing wind pants. I told him he needed to get a ten-dollar pair of sports wind pants before he tore or damaged his fifty-dollar snow skiing wind pants. He was able to find a nice pair for $9.99.
As usual, I noticed a major difference between women's and men's wind pants or any type of sports-related pants or shorts; POCKETS! Men's pants have lots of pockets and women's pants have little or none! DH was able to put his keys in one of the two front pockets and his wallet in the nice zippered back pocket.
Where are women supposed to put their keys? Where can they stash a driver's license? How about some change for the concession stand? Oh wait, we're supposed to put them in our purses.
But what if you don't carry a purse? I don't. I haven't for years. At most, I'll carry a very small fanny pack, but 99% of the time I make do with a little wallet that carries my driver's license, my insurance card, and one credit card along with a bit of cash. The wallet is 3.5" x 4" in size; it fits neatly in a pocket IF I HAVE ONE.
And I know that women don't like pockets because they supposedly make us all look fat. Get over it. Who cares?! I just want a place to stick my keys and license! I demand equal pocketing!

Stitching is looking good! As for the pockets. I carry a purse for all my stuff--mostly to cart my contact stuff and glasses. However, I generally leave my purse in my car and place my credit card,cash, and keys in my jeans. I agree with you about the pockets though. I don't buy anything if it doesn't have pockets!!! A purse gets in the way at times and I don't want to hassle with it!!
