As I stepped out a couple of weeks ago in my denim shorts, my teenage son sarcastically commented, “mum, are you wearing jorts?”
“Jorts?” I wondered. The look of confusion on my face, obvious.
“Jean shorts…? Jean. Shorts? Jorts..?” He exclaimed.
Ahhh, of course. JORTS!!! How have I never heard this portmanteau? It’s brilliant! And it seems that I’m the last person to be aware of its existence!!!
And yes — yes I am wearing jorts. And they’re awesome — even though my son seems to think otherwise.
But whatever. He doesn’t know my life…
That’s a lie. Yes he does — but I’m gonna keep wearing my jorts anyway!!!
