Hold The Sunglasses, Please!

Many years ago, Mrs. LFD's brother got married, and I was told I needed a black suit for the wedding. No problem, and to Davenedbydekoisel no comments, please (happy birthday BTW)! Anyway, I was wearing said suit this week, and I was informed by Mrs. LFD that I was suffering from that malady of old age, "Shiny Butt". You know, that highly reflective shine that develops from to much time sitting at the table learning (or listening to chazzunims off key caterwauling). Now you may think this is funny, but all suits eventually wear down. This particular suit has had buttons fall off of the sleeves, and had a number of other minor mishaps. Perhaps what keeps me coming back to it is the fact that after all this time, the suit fits just fine. I also like the black double breasted look, and it's hard to find these days. Or maybe it's the fact that it's about time that Mrs. LFD gives my bottom the stare it deserves, only hold the sunglasses, please!

What is it with men and holding on to their (riddled-with-holes) aging clothing??

Why must wives forever be stealing things for the rag pile?

Great post though :)

i seem to remember being a little out of place at that wedding as i was the only one wearing a tuxedo (or are we talking about the other brother?). people kept on coming up to me assuming i was a waiter.


oh man, my wife is always begging me to get rid of my camp t-shirts, old jeans, tattered winter coat, etc.

loz- is it possible that it was my wedding that you were the waiter. big brother had tuxedos and twin brother just needed new black suits.
