Today, I was wearing jeans on a 1.5 h car ride. But as soon as I arrived, I changed into my tracksuit bottoms. Why?

Comfort relevant? Did you need the tracksuit bottoms for some purpose? Relevant where you were going?

I = Doriana? All "I"s refer to the same person, right? Is it relevant where you were heading to? Where you departed from? Was it a non-stop ride? Relevant? Assuming normal speeding, your departure and arrival spots were somewhat 100 km away, correct? Did you travel from one city to another? Or merely circling inside the same city? Were you attending a sports event? Were you performing some sports activity yourself at the destination? Is the type of the car relevant? Is it relevant your entire outfit? If so: while in car? after getting at the destination?

Haha, so true. A few years ago I was rushed by a taxi driver from the airport in Frankfurt at 150 km/h with heavy rain outside. But here I was considering the possibility of going through the streets of a busy city at peak hours :-)

The place you were going to: a public place? a private residence? indoors? outdoors? Did something bad happened to the jeans? Some coffee nicely distributed over them? :-) Were you going in a vacation? At some mountain resort?

were you the one who was driving?

did you change into your trackies to engage in a particular activity?

were you trying to keep your jeans nice? were you going into somewhere where jeans were not allowed? or would not be appropriate?

were your jeans damaged in some way? were they uncomfortable?

Were you preparing food? Beverages? Were you painting something? Could you perform the same activity in your own home? Can you do it in a living room? In a garage? In the bathroom? Outside?

Nice and fast work, guys! Here's the
********SPOILER********
Yesterday, we painted my best friend's new flat. I brought some old trackies with me because I didn't want to get any paint on my jeans.
(And this was a good decision since I got white paint all over me!)
