Now's Your Pants! I Mean... Your Chance!
You turn a corner in the Sleazy Back Alley, and find yourself lost in a maze of twisty little passages. In fact, you're so lost, and the passages are so twisty, that you eventually turn a tight corner and find yourself standing directly behind... yourself.
Resolving not to think about it too closely, for fear the universe will suddenly realize what you're doing and put a stop to it, you sneak up behind yourself and prepare to steal your own pants.
With Pants Equipped:
Quietly, stealthily, you reach out and steal the pants from your unsuspecting self, and fade back into the mazy passages of the Sleazy Back Alley before you notice what has happened.
Then you make your way back out of the Alley, clutching your pants triumphantly and trying really hard not to think about how oddly chilly it has suddenly become.
|You acquire... something.|
Without Pants Equipped:
Unbeknownst to yourself, you reach out to steal your pants... and then realize that you aren't actually wearing any pants.
You check to see if maybe you stole them already and didn't notice, which was in fact the point of the whole exercise, but you don't think you did, and the more you think about it the worse your headache gets.
Probably the easiest thing to do is just to go put some pants on, and try again.
