Stoopid is as stoopid does . . .

Let me preface this . . . I am so very proud of all three of my older sons.  They are all admirable young men with significant gifts and qualities.  They are all working their insignificant behinds off paying for classes and books and other things.  Among those other things?  Clothing. I’m happy they’re getting their own clothes now (I spring for underpants, socks and the basic t-shirts). No arguments and I no longer have to fidget outside of a dressing rooms while they try things on.  I am also free to mock them when they make odd choices – skinny jeans on skinny boys?????  What better excuse do I need to break out my (should-be) famous impersonation of a French mime? 


I’ll try to get to the point. Tim stopped by Plato’s Closet (a great place to check before you hit the mall for anything from jeans to prom dresses).  He found a pair of shorts he loved and that fit him well.  Tim’s 6′ 2″ and weighs (with heavy shoes and a backpack) about 135.  I know Tim.  I know he is not a tag reader.  He just wants something that fits.  Imagine my delight and surprise when I washed and folded these shorts the other afternoon. 

Can you see the tag on the inside of the fly? Tim was kind of horrified when I pointed it out to him. His first response was, “Make sure Andy doesn’t see this.”   WHY???? Why? Why? Why? Why does everything have to be edgy and whatever the heck that rocket is? These are the first shorts Tim’s found in about two years that fit him well. They’re beautifully made. And . . . then the label.

  1. I had a pair of Lucky Jeans years ago that said “Lucky You” on the inside of the fly. I always thought “I'm lucky to have made it to the toilet in time?” b/c that's the only time anyone saw the damned thing.

    And really, a fella that needs to be reminded to take off his pants first has no business playing the game.
