Mortifying - though not fatal

posted 27 Jun 2015, 03:17 by Sandra Kirby
News item about woman in Adelaide that became victim of fashion.  Woman wearing tight jeans; helped friends moving house. Meant lots of squatting, bending, standing etc. end of long day she leaves friends and walks home. Big problem jeans so tight her legs had swollen during day and cut circulation to her legs. She collapsed on quiet street. Couldn't get up; several hours before she was able to move enough to crawl out of street and hail a cab.  Spent 4 days in hospital before circulation to legs fully restored. 
I'm not sure which of these is the most mortifying:
a)  having to go to hospital to get your jeans taken off
b) having your tight jeans moment written up in medical journal
c) having your tight jeans experience in international news; medical journal and Kirby family blog!!
