Overheard at casa del Bluepaintred

Hubs has a thirty inch waist (feel free to hate him for it, I do) and a six foot inseam. For as long as I have known him, I have never seen him in a pair of pants that fits him properly. He would be able to get pants to fit his waist, but then he would be walking around in manpries, so he gets pants to fit his height and uses a belt to take in the extra foot of material in the waist.

Sigh.

I know that there are places that we can buy jeans that will fit him in both the waist and the leg, but you have to pay like seventy bucks for a pair. The way we shop for clothing is if it over twenty bucks, it's too much. Except for shoes, and coats. And socks, I guess, becuase I once spent 21 dollars on a pair of socks, but man were they awesome!

For the last few months I have been trying to convince hubs that we should spend the cash and get him a pair that fits, and he can wear them just for special occasions, weddings and family gatherings and the like. Yes he wears jeans to weddings, nice, ill fitting black ones with a dress shirt and a sports coat. He looks good so STFU.

Hubs hates shopping. A lot.

Annnyway:

So I think it is time to go and get those jeans. I think you should get a pair tight enough to make a genital devision sign.

Uh. No thank you, I like my sperm count exactly where it is!

What? At Zero?


So ... I guess we will go see Santa this weekend instead...

Pray tell, why does he need a sperm count? ;) That's what I would have said.

Oh yeah, and I suck as a stalkee and as a friend. It's been a tough week over here, too. I hope you are surviving the pukes and that you didn't get it.

I'm a sock whore. I love the idea of $21 socks. Thank you, I'll be asking Santa today.

Big T is a big boy too... and refuses to buy anything not cheap or on clearance. *sigh* "If it isn't from Walmart it shouldn't be bought". Right.

Wow... I wonder what the Catholic Church's stance on tight jeans is... not that'd change the way we do things, just wondering. The pope still hasn't answered my letter about spaying and nuetering our dogs.
