Playing Dress-Up

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.

I already have a bowl of candy in the house. There's no going back, just accept it. Get ready to board the old person train, next stop, you. (Copyright Simpsons)

I'd be afraid if she starts buying matching outfits

Amy, Kevin's afraid of looking old. Christmas is right around the corner. I think Kevin would look good in some parachute pants and a mesh tank-top. Make it happen.

I wasn't sure what to get Kevin for Christmas, I think this new turn in life helps me decide to give him following:

Large Gift box containing the following in layers
-Dress shirt, blue button down
-Dress shirt, white button down
-Hanes T-shirts
-Hanes T-shirts
-Boxers - Fruit of the loom
-Boxers - Fruit of the loom

Maybe if I've got some extra $$ kickin around, I'll splurge for the bottle of old spice
