A few months ago, Amy was doing some online shopping on OldNavy.com, and came up a few bucks short of qualifying for free shipping (although once I saw the bill I thought that Morgan Fairchild should have personally hand-delivered everything). So she decided to get something for me, and surprise me with it. She got me a long-sleeved shirt, and I love it.
A week or so ago, she was back on OldNavy.com (I think she has a problem), and she bought me a few more shirts along with her order -- this time not just to qualify for the free shopping. They arrived a few days ago, and again, I really like them.
But as I was going to bed later that night, it occurred to me: Oh sweet lord, my wife is buying my clothes. This can't be happening. Having your wife buy all your clothes is something that I thought only happened to old married couples. We're still in our twenties, for Pete's sake.
I shared this revelation with my wife, and she was equally mortified. So now we're going to make sure I approve any clothing purchases ahead of time.
Next thing you know she'll be knitting me things -- ahh! She does that already, too! My God, we might as well just move to the retirement home now!
I have to go now, and put a stop to this before we're putting out little bowls of hard candy throughout the house.
P.S. You all have my permission to use the phrase "a few bucks short of free shipping" in lieu of "a few sandwiches short of a picnic," a "a few cards short of a deck," etc.Posted by Kevin at November 8, 2004 09:43 AM
