We've been bit by a major Spring cleaning bug around here. My husband tackled the garage and I attacked our bedroom (I know those are very violent verbs, but if you saw the rooms in question, you'd think they weren't strong enough). Do you think he'll notice if I throw away his really ugly Hawaiian shirt that is two sizes too big on him? We bought it when we went to Hawaii. It was at one of those outdoor markets and we felt pretty cool. I bought a dress type thing and he bought the shirt. When we were in Hawaii it felt right to wear them. We felt as though we were blending into the culture (never mind the fact that we're as white as paper). Then we came home, away from the touristy, beachy paradise and let's just say, we have no business wearing these Hawaiian clothes any more (not that we did in the first place). I have put mine to rest, only bringing it out as a swimsuit cover. But my husband refuses to realize the ridiculousness that is his shirt (actually, he probably does realize it, he just likes to embarrass me) and continues to wear it.

What?! You impose your taste on your husband? Is that allowed?ReplyDelete
And what are you doing clean house? Now, that's more guilt I have to deal with. Life was so much simpler when I had no friends.
NOT!!!!!! You're my girl.
Neal had a hawaiin shirt and I have a hawaiin dress type thingy too from when we went. I don't think either of us have worn them since we got back!ReplyDelete
So what item of clothing do YOU have that Jared despises?ReplyDelete
Linda, if my husband is allowed to tell me what he wants the pillows on the couch to look like then I think I should be able to tell him what to wear. LOL And, I'm sorry if your life was simpler before friends because it's too late now, you're stuck with me. :)ReplyDelete
Candi, see, you know what I'm talking about. They are meant to be retired when you get home.
Heather, what??? My husband loves everything I wear. LOL Actually, if my husband told me something didn't look good on me it would be in the garbage the next day. But now you have me curious. I'll have to ask him if he doesn't like something I wear.
lol my husband bought a few of those when we moved to Fl--now I allow him one in his closet and he can't wear it--only look at it!ReplyDelete
I did the same thing when we went to Mexico. The shirt sits at the back of my closet waiting for fiesta nights.ReplyDelete
LOL, I love getting into house cleaning. It makes me feel like I accomplished something. No matter how little... some days I feel like I haven't done anything... then I say "No, I did put that one glass in the dishwasher" and all is well. :PReplyDelete
After Linda's discovery of a missing family pet in the vacuum, my cleaning days are over. They were kinda over before that but that's my excuse. Now, where's my cat?ReplyDelete
Maybe you could make it into something else-like a pillow or a blanket. And really you are doing it because you hate the shirt, but he will think you did it to immortalize your perfect Hawaii vacation. Do you have a dog? Maybe he could eat it.ReplyDelete
My husband's red sweater. It's your Hawaiin shirt. I don't like it, very much. But I can't tell him because thinks he's hot in it.ReplyDelete
