Dear GYA, I hear some LDS women are planning on rocking pants to church this Sunday. OK, that's great and all, but let's be honest -- they're doing Sundays all wrong. Sunday's aren't meant for pants. Sunday's are for wearing cushy robes and sitting on your ass watching 12 hours of football, only to find a cache of half-eaten Taquitos stuck to your back Monday morning. Anything to do this weekend while I boycott pants? - Mark Rappaparten, Draper
